A Pioneer in Modern Logistics Solutions

CTPark Amsterdam City is a pioneer in modern last-mile logistics solutions. The complex contains 120,000 sqm of storage and last-mile distribution space spread over several floors. It is self-sufficient in its energy management, with green energy produced on-site by a massive 5.7 MWp solar plant and wind turbines.

Future-Ready Infrastructure
