The hypermarket chain owns in Romania two logistic centres with a total area of 190,000 sq. m, being the largest operator of logistic spaces in Romania.
„Kaufland operates in Turda its second logistic centre after the one in Ploiesti, and we are currently building an extension of the warehouse. The new facility will be completely automated and will have an area of 7,200 sq. m and a capacity of more than 30,000 euro-pallets“, said the group’s representatives, who didn’t disclose the value of the investment. According to ZF estimations based on the data in the market, the value of the investment is below EUR 5 million.
The logistic centre in Turda, situated at the entrance on the highway connecting Turda to Gilău (the 52 kilometers completed from Transylvania Highway) has 70,000 sq. m, was opened in 2011 and supplies the Kaufland stores in the north-western, northern and centre Romania.
The largest warehouse of the German group is situated in Ploiesti. IT was inaugurated in October 2005 and includes a storage area exceeding 120,000 sq. m.
For a retailer, the logistics is very important as hundreds of trucks loaded leave every day from the logistics centres to supply the nearly 100 stores, in Kaufland’s case. (source: zf.ro)
