Mercadona has completed work on expanding its logistics facility located in the Alicante municipality of San Isidro.
The project included the construction of a new warehouse that will occupy 53,000 m2 on a plot of more than 83,000 m2 in the La Granadina industrial estate.
Construction of the warehouse began in May 2018, with more than 17 local companies taking part. Construction was carried out in two phases. The resulting warehouse for fish has been in operation since November 2019. The second has just come into operation and will house perishable products, mainly meat, fruit and vegetables.
In total, the company has invested 98 million euros in the project. The new facility has an automated PPG (Picking Bridge Crane) system, an innovative system for storing and preparing meat, fruit, and vegetable pallets. The system eliminates handling and overexertion by workers throughout the process.
