Biggest Romanian online retailer eMAG pours EUR 90 mln in new logistic centre
The largest online retailer in Romania, eMAG, announced that it is investing EUR 90 mln in a new, state-of-the-art logistics center, which will cover an area of 130,000 square meters.
The new center will be located not far from Bucharest, along the A1 Bucuresti - Pitesti motorway.
The construction works will start this August and will be completed by September next year. By July 2022, all automation and technologies will be operational.
"While until now employees were going to pick products off the shelf, with the help of new technology - a revolutionary picking system that will generate four times higher productivity, the goods will automatically reach the employees. Also, multiple orders will be merged into a single package, leading to a decrease in the volume and consumption of cardboard required for packaging. The processing time will decrease. The large storage capacity of the new warehouse will also increase the range of products in categories such as fashion or consumer goods, drinks, and food," the company said in a press release.
The new deposit will be supplied with green energy through 40,000 sqm of solar panels, and an area of 100,000 sqm will be planted with trees.
