The new logistic component will serve as supply warehouse for products in large quantities at advantageous prices and will provide a faster distribution of products to the chain’s stores.

This is one of the measures we’ve planned since September and it comes to avoid the potential growth of prices, triggered by the poor economic conditions that the market is undergoing at this moment: financial crisis, negative evolution of the currency exchange rates, skyrocketing costs for utilities and raw materials”, said Dan Sucu, chairman of Mobexpert Group.

The new logistic center will be located at Km21 of A1 highway, Bucharest-Pitesti, near Bolintin locality. Bucharest Logistic Center will measure 24,000 sqm, and will consist in 4 independent buildings. The gross surface will be nearly 62,500 sqm, including parking, utility area and green spaces.
