Cimcorp receives largest order from Mercadona

Cimcorp receives largest order from Mercadona

Cimcorp has received its largest-ever order worth over 120 million euros in the intralogistics market from Spain’s leading grocery retailer Mercadona. Under the deal, Cimcorp will automate the distribution of fresh food at Mercadona’s new distribution centres located in Huévar (Seville), Sagunto (Valencia), San Isidro (Alicante) and Zaragoza.

The four distribution centres (DCs), will serve over 600 of the retailer’s 1630 supermarkets so Cimcorp’s automated systems will ensure that fresh foods are available to some two million of the five million households that shop at Mercadona.

Kai Tuomisaari, Cimcorp’s Vice President, Sales, said: “We provide reliable intralogistics solutions for rapid order fulfillment, and thereby optimize product shelf life. This means that customers get their fruit, vegetables and other fresh products faster, ensuring they stay fresh for longer in the home. We are delighted to be working with Mercadona again,” he continued. “There is an excellent spirit of partnership, open communication and mutual trust between our two companies.”

“The main objective of these four centres will be to meet the demands of our stores, secure growth in perishable product sales and eliminate the overexertion that results from the manual handling of orders,” explained Javier Blasco, Warehouse Purchasing Coordinator for Mercadona.

Cimcorp previously supplied automation to Mercadona back in 2013, when it implemented a fully automated order picking system for fresh produce at the retailer’s DC in Guadix, near Granada. However, the new order will be the first time that Cimcorp has acted as a system integrator.

We provide reliable intralogistics solutions for rapid order fulfilment, and thereby optimise product shelf life. This means that customers get their fruit, vegetables and other fresh products faster, ensuring they stay fresh for longer in the home, said Kai Tuomisaari.

Mercadona, an in-store and online supermarket retailer, has over 1600 supermarket stores throughout Spain.
