Supporting and developing innovative projects
Our commitment and investment capability drive us to support innovative projects by taking a stake in businesses and start-ups. We also invest with our partners in real estate projects designed to breathe life into environment-related products and services, or that make it possible to provide a real innovation. Furthermore, all these investments are part of a scheme to provide an additional answer or solution to our customers.
Thanks to our mastery of logistics and all its implications, and to our knowledge of land-use planning, development and design-construction for every type of project, we have the capacity to take up challenges for re-integrating logistics into the heart of cities. To achieve this, we integrate projects tailored to each geographical zone, going from major platforms to hybrid hotels and distribution centres.
