The Chilean Logistics Association, Alog Chile, has awarded the Prize for the most outstanding company in 2008 to abertis logística, in recognition of its important participation and contribution to the logisitics sector in Chile this year.
Alog Chile has taken into consideration the enormous investment that abertis logística is making in Chile and its consolidation worldwide, in addition to the success of abertis logisticspark santiago, the new logistics park that the company is developing in the district of Pudahuel, in Santiago de Chile. Manel Martínez, director general of abertis logística in Chile, received the award from Rolf Gremler, chairman of Alog Chile, at a formal event held in the Chilean capital.
abertis logisticspark santiago is the first comprehensive logistics park project to be developed in Santiago. The urban planning work commenced in February 2008 and it is planned that the first 20,000 square metres of the industrial premises will be handed over during the first quarter of 2010. The project, which is located in ENEA industrial estate, envisages the construction of 350,000 square metres of industrial premises and more than 15,000 square metres of land for services.
The most important feature of the logistics park is its privileged location in the capital of Chile. It can be accessed directly from the two most important motorways in the Metropolitan Region (Costanera Norte and Vespucio Express). In addition, the park is close to Pudahuel airport (which is only 2.2 km away) and the main access routes to the ports of Valparaíso and San Antonio, both of which deal with more than 80% of all the country's exports and imports.
Once the project has been implemented, the total estimated investment will be 300 million dollars, including the cost of the land acquired from ENEA The investment forecast for developing the park will be carried out in a progressive manner over the next ten years and adapted to the evolution in demand. Furthermore, it is estimated that the logistics park will create more than 5,000 direct jobs and 10,000 indirect jobs, once it is fully operative.
