Lidl Serbia has officially opened a distribution centre in Nova Pazova, according to local reports, marking the start of operations in the country.
The structure extends over 45,000 square metres and employs 180 people. It has space for 30,000 pallets and a capacity for supplying 100 stores, making it one of the largest distribution centres in South-Eastern Europe.
It is also the first in Serbia to be LEED Gold certified, which means that it respects the highest standards in sustainable construction. The certification was awarded for the centre's incorporation of sustainable building materials, its more efficient use of water, waste reduction, better energy performance, and better working conditions, such as indoor air quality and use of natural light.
