Home goods retailer HEMA is set to open a new distribution centre as it looks to target international growth.

 

The Dutch chain has contracted Prologis to build the 34000 square metre site, which will be situated at ‘t Klooster in Nieuwegein, near Utrecht.

 

It is near the retailer’s current DC in Utrecht, allowing for collaboration between the two centres. Prologis says the new centre will meet sustainability criteria, making use of solar panels and LED lighting.

 

The firm will begin construction on the site this year, with completion scheduled for mid-March 2020.

 

Bas van der Kwaak, property manager at HEMA, said: "HEMA has the ambition to grow (internationally) and for this purpose a new distribution center is needed.”

 

Sander Breugelmans, country manager Prologis Benelux, said the region was very important for national distribution and ecommerce.

 

This week also saw fellow Netherlands retailer Albert Heijn announce it would supply its Amsterdam stores using a mixture of electric and hybrid vehicles as part of a new trial.
