Spar Netherlands To Introduce New Distribution Centre For Northern Netherlands Region

Spar Netherlands has announced that it will develop a logistics hub in Heerenveen in order to support the current growth of its logistics processes.

The company said it requires the new facility to take the pressure off the distribution centre in Waalwijk, due to an addition of more than 100 Spar Express locations.

Sharing The Load

Containers from the Waalwijk distribution centre will be transported to the hub via cross-flow docking processes, and then delivered to stores in the Northern regions of the Netherlands.

The opening of the new hub will create extra space in the distribution centre in Waalwijk so that logistic processes can operate more efficiently.

In addition, through reducing the distance that supply trucks need to travel, Spar is helping to reduce CO2 emissions and creating a better environment, the company said.

Earlier this year Spar Netherlands introduced a checkout-free shopping system at its university store in Hogeschool Utrecht.
