$150 million

French logistics operator FM Logistic has announced plans to invest $150 million over the next five years in its own warehouses and distribution centres in India, which will bring nearly 500 jobs within twelve months. As part of the investment, the company will start operating a multi-client facility in Delhi National Capital Region in April 2019 and expand its multi-client warehouse in Mumbai.[]

855,000 sq.ft

Amazon’s first distribution center in New York City is large by conventional standards, at 855,000 square feet, but the site is about 20% smaller than the e-commerce giant’s usual sprawling fulfillment centers. The Staten Island facility is the latest in a series of more compact sites Amazon is placing near big markets, as the company tries to get its goods closer to dense population centers while getting the most out of a real estate that gets scarcer and more expensive closer to cities.[]
