    A major investment

    Global retailer Orchestra specializes in baby and children’s clothing and accessories. It has now earmarked €50 million for a new logistics hub in Arras—its second in France—that will create up to 700 jobs by 2020.

    Combining logistics and e-commerce

    For Orchestra, a key plus of the Actiparc business park in Greater Arras is immediate access to the nearby A1 and A26 expressways. The future hub will house warehousing and distribution operations for apparel and baby gear as well as an e-commerce base, offering a vast 120,000 sq m of floor area in all. Construction of the first phase—50,000 sq m scheduled for delivery in mid-2016—will get under way in summer 2015.
