At FACTOR 5, we have a piece of news to share; we have recently been entrusted with the management of the new warehousing platform of the retail giant Leroy Merlin. The launch of this enormous logistics center will take place progressively, with operations beginning in November.
New logistics center for the Leroy Merlin online channel
Thanks to this new initiative, we will be able to attend to the majority of the logistics needs following the opening of the new Leroy Merlin online store (a sales channel which is now growing exponentially). In this way the brand will achieve its objectives, which are to double the current sales figures for its digital channel (39.1 million Euros last year).
Leroy Merlin is currently focusing heavily on expanding the brand in Spain, and this new logistics center will join the existing centers at Torrija (Guadalajara) with 100,000 m2 managed by Dachser Iberia and Prat de Llobregat (Barcelona) with 11,400 m2 managed by Kuehne & Nagel.
At FACTOR 5, we have added 12 new warehouses at our logistics center
Following the opening of this new warehouse complex FACTOR 5 will have 12 logistics platforms; 11 of these are located in Guadalajara and Madrid and one in Seville.
To cover the needs of Leroy Merlin, we are currently looking to recruit and incorporate 400 new professionals to assist with this project.
At FACTOR 5, we continue to invest daily in technological innovation and new processes to continue to improve the times and cost of deliveries.
