"I am very pleased that the combined transport project on the former military brownfield has been brought to the implementation phase after almost twelve years, especially now, when the global importance of logistics linked to the development of industrial parks and especially the rapid growth of e-commerce is unquestionably growing. I expect the newly built terminal and the interconnection of rail, road and air transport not only to be an important artery for the economy of our region, but also to contribute significantly to the use and subsequent development of Ostrava Airport," said Tomáš Macura, Mayor of the Statutory City of Ostrava.

The combined transport terminal will contribute significantly to the shift of freight transport from road to rail. In conjunction with the storage and production capacity in the Mošnov Industrial Zone, it will make logistics processes more efficient, minimising the negative impact on the environment.

The OSTRAVA AIRPORT MULTIMODAL PARK complex covers an area of 52 hectares in Ostrava-Mošnov Industrial Strategic Zone and will include more than 234,000 sqm of warehouse, production and office space after the construction is completed, in addition to the combined transport terminal.
Currently, the first three halls are available to tenants, including Central Warehouse Solutions (Skladon), Continental Barum, DHL, Geis, Hyundai Glovis, PST CLC, Rhenus Logistics and UFI Filters. The construction of the fourth hall for ABB will be completed in the first half of next year, and planning permission has been granted for the largest hall, the fifth.

After completion of the construction, the combined transport terminal will be purchased by IF Invest EAST, a.s., a member of the Innofreight Group.

The Czech Republic has historically been a very important market for Innofreight and with this acquisition its importance within the group will continue to grow.
OSTRAVA AIRPORT MULTIMODAL PARK will become our operational hub for the CEE region. We want to further develop the site and plan further investments in modern service and production capacities," said Petr Michal, CEO of IF Invest EAST, a. s.
