Tuesday, March 12, 2013 reports that "according to the Industrial Market Report prepared by the firm CBRE Global Research and Consulting for 2012, the increase of logistics parks and booming growth for such projects, especially with Class A facilities, has allowed those building to improve product delivery and offer advantageous prices for companies on the look out in these areas. "

On the Via Tocumen and the Pan American Highway to the east, there is a concentration of a large number of industrial and logistics parks, in an area with the most profitable area built, the biggest quantity of areas available for this activity and good average prices for rent and sale.

According to the president of the Business Logistics Council (COEL), Daniel Isaza, counting logistics parks, there is an estimated investment of over $120 million, however there are warehouse complexes that are not classified as logistics parks but which provide or use storage and distribution facilities.

Isaza believes that the construction of logistics parks in the area is a competitive option for all industries and markets wishing to settle in Panama without the need to enter the traffic and congestion of the city.
