a Amazon Logistics Center for Southern Italy could arise in Basilicata. This was made known by the regional councilor resigned to productive activities Francesco Cupparo: “Before formalizing my resignation as councilor for Productive Activities, I spoke with the company INC commissioned by Amazon to identify an area in Basilicata for a possible investment aimed at the possible construction of an Amazon Logistics Center for Southern Italy”, he said.
And again: “On behalf of the Region, I expressed my full willingness to respond to the request for an area between 25 and 30 hectares that the company intends to use and that the same company has indicated in two industrial areas of our region: Tito e Melfi“.
“I therefore entrusted the competent Office of the Department with providing the company with the utmost collaboration and technical-administrative assistance – continued Cupparo – I am convinced that any investment could represent on the employment level (si hypothesize a thousand jobs, including specialized professionals and graduates) and on the industrial one a great opportunity to be seized for our region which has all the conditions, as already happens for the presence of international players, to host a new large foreign group “.
“The industrial areas identified and which have available lots have adequate infrastructures and are able to respond to logistical needs. An example comes from the investment already announced by the American giant in Abruzzo where the first selection of personnel for the Amazon logistics hub under construction has started in recent weeks. The hope is that whoever takes my place and the entire council will follow up on my commitment and the discussions started in order not to miss this opportunity ”, concluded the quasi-former councilor.
