Mercadona is increasing its commitment to the logistics sector. The Valencian food group, which was very active last year, especially in its own autonomous region, has signed a rental agreement with Rockspring to lease a logistics warehouse measuring 29,000 m2 on the outskirts of Barcelona.
Mercadona is going to move into a logistics park in Sant Esteve de Sesrovires that was promoted by the investment fund manager Rockspring and the Goodman group, and which was inaugurated last March.
The asset has granted a Breeam certificate, which guarantees the sustainability of the warehouse and that its construction was undertaken in accordance with respect for the environment. According to Business Inmo, the property will be occupied in its entirety by the Spanish food distribution company.
This operation strengthens the commitment of the company led by Juan Roig to extend and renew its logistics portfolio. A few days ago, the group announced that it is going to invest €80 million on the expansion of its technological centre in Valencia. Also in its home region, last October, Mercadona signed the purchase of the largest plot in Parc Sagunt, after acquiring a logistics space measuring 358,270 m2.
