Creation of a logistics hub in the Yakutia's ASEZ will attract RUB 250 million in private investment

The boundaries of the Advanced Special Economic Zone (ASEZ) "Yakutia" will be extended to create a wholesale and distribution centre in the village of Nizhny Bestyakh. The relevant decree was signed by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

According to the press center of Yakutia in Moscow, the center will generate more than 250 million rubles of private investment and create new jobs.

The project implies the construction of a transport terminal with 16 docks for trucks up to forty tons and 16 docks for trucks weighing eight tons. In addition, thermal warehouses with a capacity of 1.32 thousand euro pallets and almost four thousand square meters of production facilities will be built here.

"The new center will become a logistics hub, where food suppliers and local agricultural producers will be able to prepare their goods for further transportation through Yakutia," the press center said and specified that the total project investment will exceed 1.7 billion rubles.

According to Alexander Afanasiev, Deputy Minister of Economy of Yakutia, there are also plans to develop timber industry complex, launch production of liquefied natural gas and build a waste processing plant on the territory of advanced development.

At present 25 projects are being implemented in the Yakutia ASEZ, with investments of almost 13 billion rubles.
