”In addition, Turin is part of European Corridor 5, which connects Lisbon to Kiev, and benefits from close proximity to Corridor 24, which connects Genova with Rotterdam,” said in a press release.

“This acquisition represented a unique opportunity to acquire a portfolio of high quality and strategically located assets. While Italy has seen significant growth in e-commerce over the course of the pandemic, it still lags other European countries and we are confident that there remains significant upside for growth in this market. To have secured assets of this calibre is not only a strong endorsement of the strength of our team in Italy, but also of our logistics platform more generally,” said Laurie Lagarde, Fund Manager, European Industrial Fund at CBRE Global Investors.
