Gian Luca Fossati, who has 15 years of experience in contract logistics and the supply chain with responsibilities at major international suppliers, will take on the position of Vice President Commercial and R&D for Italy. According to what he has explained, he assumes this challenge under the certainty that the business model that has led the company to double-digit growth every year and to expand in 4 continents can become a success also in Italy.
In this respect, the main success factors of ID Logistics' activities are its extensive experience in the e-commerce sector, as well as the commitment of its teams. This team has successfully carried out all phases of the project simultaneously, from the research and identification of the best location in Italy to the design of the most suitable solution for the case.
As a global network with extensive local expertise, ID Logistics' entry into the Italian market is linked to the company's strategy to become a global partner that can serve key customers throughout the European market. To this end, the company expects to develop quickly in the country.
In this regard, the Casei Gerola site, located near the A7 Milan/Genoa motorway and the A21 Turin/Brescia motorway, has been operational since 1 June 2022. It handles non-classifiable products on behalf of an international e-commerce operator. Also, it incorporates technologies that manage to integrate the entirety of the company's processes for this ID Logistics customer for which the Group operates in a total of 6 different countries.
Due to its strategic location, this new site is directly connected to the main cities in northwest Italy. It has a total surface area of 62,900 square meters and is capable of receiving up to 55,000 units per day, with more than 80 different destinations. In addition, the center currently employs 350 full-time staff, which is expected to increase to 500 during the peak season.
Another aspect that is important to mention is that the warehouse is LEED Platinum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certified, which is considered to be one of the most difficult certifications to obtain in terms of reducing the negative impact on the environment. This has been achieved thanks to the installation of solar panels and green walls that contribute to biodiversity, limiting the heating of the facility, while offsetting CO2 emissions. It is a facility that also stands out for reducing waste production through processes that are carried out in a specific sorting area. At the same time, the site has LED lighting and a complex water recycling system to conserve resources.
According to ID Logistics, this new site demonstrates the Group's ability to support its customers throughout Europe, giving it a solid foundation for continued growth in a market with great potential.
