Norbert opens second Spanish hub

Norbert Dentressangle is set to open a second facility in Madrid to accommodate a 30 per cent growth in volumes in its Spanish distribution network.

The company provides next-day delivery services via a network of 60 sites.

It now handles more than two and a half million pallets as part of its pallet distribution business, and expects this to continue growing.

The 4,000 sq m centre in San Fernando De Henares will act as a consolidation and trans-shipment point for product from customers in the area, prior to onward, next day delivery throughout the Iberian Peninsula in the short term.

Going forward, it will also act as a distribution centre serving customers in the north of Madrid.

Norbert Dentressangle opened a 14,000 sq m, fully automated distribution platform in Leganes in 2008, serving the southern zone of the Spanish capital.
