Toledo, Wednesday 27th February 2019

Montepino Logística is about to complete the huge distribution centre it is developing in Toledo for Logisfashion.

The Mayor of Toledo, Milagros Tolón, visited the 80,000 m2 construction site the morning, together with the Vice President of Operations at Montepino, Juan José Vera; the managing director and founder of Logisfashion, Juan Manuel Manzanedo; and the director of Logisfashion Europe, Diego Larrañaga.

This project, situated in the heart of the industrial estate, represents an investment of €40 million. The installations, which are being constructed on a plot of land covering over 135,700 m2, consist of a climatised unit of 400 m by 190 m with a height of 15 m. It also features a three-storey office building of over 3200 m2 and a car park with capacity for 500 vehicles.

The platform is large enough to allow 100 heavy vehicles to work simultaneously at the 100 loading bays.

The new Logisfashion distribution centre in Toledo will make use of the latest technology for the preparation of orders and processing of items for their distribution, both for retail and for end clients (e-commerce). It will begin operating in April.

Logisfashion expects to hire around 250 workers to join the 1000-strong workforce the corporation currently relies on, which will significantly increase during sales campaigns. Approximately 70% of the workforce will be women.

Juan José Vera, Vice President of Operations at Montepino, explained that it consists of a "platform which makes use of the best features of the sector."Meanwhile, the fact that it consists of a space designed entirely horizontally with just one storey "means that Logisfashion will be hugely competitive in terms of its storage capacity and all the timings in the logistics process."

A sustainable building with the latest innovative technologies

This project has been carried out in accordance with the highest quality standards and within the efficiency parameters established by the LEED energy certification, an international environmental seal which attests that the project consists of a space with significantly lower operational costs, CO2 emissions and water and energy consumption. In addition to the energy saving, this certification recognises that the building is comfortable and provides a high-quality working environment.

Juan Manzanedo, CEO and founder of Logisfashion, states: "This first-class centre, which features the latest technological breakthroughs as well as meeting the highest energy efficiency and environmental sustainability standards, will allow us to offer the highest possible quality to our clients and strengthen our position at the forefront of fashion-specialised logistics."

With this new centre in Toledo, Logisfashion is strengthening its position in Castilla-La Mancha with four centres and 204,000 m2 of operational space, joining the centres in Barcelona and Girona to total 246,000 m2 across Spain.

Logisfashion has a presence in Europe (Spain, Germany and France), America (USA, Mexico, Panama, Colombia and Chile) and Asia (China, Hong Kong and Vietnam).
