The orders will be fulfilled from its online distribution centre in the Higuerón Sur area of Seville, Spain.

Mercadona has invested €25 million in the new distribution centre in Seville that caters to online orders from Seville, Huelva and Jerez de la Frontera.
The facility sits on a 30,220 square metre property and has a surface area of 9,938 square metres, of which 1,850 square metres is allocated to fresh products, including a cold storage area for refrigerated and frozen products.
Fresh products are received and prepared on the same day they are scheduled for delivery to online customer to ensure maximum quality and freshness, the retailer saod.
Mercadona operates a fleet of 30 vehicles with the 'ECO' environmental label in its Seville facility. All vehicles are micro-hybrids and can transport up to 15 orders.
The vehicles feature three temperature zones to adapt to ambient, refrigerated and frozen products.
In addition, they also have a mechanised unloading system that minimises the handling of the load, with the consequent reduction of overexertion for the workers and the reduction of unloading time.
The retailer has installed 648 photovoltaic panels on the rooftop of the facility, making it self-sufficient in its daily energy requirements.
