Far from being limited to logistics, the new VALUE + HUB concept stems from the experience that the Bologna Freight Village has acquired in over 40 years of activity. 

Currently, the logistics platform includes approximately 120 companies, with an estimated workforce of more than 4,000 employees. Much like a small city, it is continuously evolving not only in number but also in its infrastructures, with new aesthetics and most importantly new functionalities. Bologna Freight Village, as a facilitator and a supplier of added-value services, has studied an offer for all the people, companies and the activities in it. This solution aims at creating a direct and indirect value circle spanning the real estate offer, the logistics and the core activities as supplied by the resident companies.

The services that are available to the companies and their operators inside the hub are based on an offer that is being constantly tuned to proactively meet the requirements of both companies and the single worker.

Our competitive services are based on principles of reliability, efficiency and readiness. Resident companies can rely on these values and know they can count on a quality partner for their endeavors.

Interporto Bologna created a "Labour Exchange" to facilitate the meeting between demand and labour supply among the companies located inside the infrastructure.

All the established companies can indicate their needs of workforce to Interporto Bologna as facilitator, specifying the professionals required.

In this container called the "Labour Exchange", Interporto crosses Demand and Offer, putting in contact the parties that will continue independently the possible path of selection and collaboration.
