Elektro3 Opens State-Of-The-Art Logistics Centre In Tarragona

13 October 2017 – Mis Naves

Elektro3 is opening a new logistics centre in Vilaseca-Salou with a total surface area of 15,500 m2, of which 8,000 m2 is going to be used exclusively as a warehouse. The centre currently has capacity for 14,000 pallets and 12,500 bins.

The company, whose main operations involve the import and distribution of hardware products, is continuing its expansion process. The main improvements are expected in the storage, preparation and shipment of orders with refurbished industrial machinery and a new rail guidance system.

In turn, the centre has seven loading bays, which allows it to receive and ship all of the company’s products anywhere on the peninsula within 24 hours.

With these new facilities, Elektro3 is expected to be able to reach its objective of managing 8,500 product references, thanks to the implementation of a specialist framework of warehouse management systems. Also, a new 600 m2 showroom has been created inside the new platform, with an area specialising in the display of all products relating to lighting.

Amazon To Open Logistics Centre In Martorelles

7 April 2017 – Press Release

Amazon’s commitment to Cataluña continues to grow. The e-commerce giant is going to open its new headquarters in Martorelles, specifically, in the Martorelles Logistic Park. Sources at the town hall assure that this new facility in Martorelles will result in the creation of 650 new jobs over the next three years. “Amazon plans to launch operations in the autumn with 200 people”, explained the mayor of Martorelles, Marc Candela.

Amazon will take over the four warehouses in the logistics park, which cover a surface area of 30,000 m2, equivalent to four football pitches. This is Amazon’s fourth investment in Cataluña after it confirmed the creation of a logistics macro-centre in El Prat in June; in September, it will inaugurate a warehouse in the centre of Barcelona from where it will ship products for delivery in less than one hour; and in October, it will build another logistics centre in Castellbisbal.

Warehouses A and B at the Martorelles Logistic Park, the logistics platform developed by the investor group Segro on the grounds of the former Domar-New Pol, on the Martorelles industrial estate, are about to begin operating. Currently, half of the facilities are ready and construction is beginning on the second phase of the logistics complex, warehouses C and D.
