Inditex to set new logistics platform in León

Nov '06
INDITEX Group launched its new logistics platform in León in the presence of Mr. Juan Vicente Herrera, President of the Junta de Castilla–León and of Mr. Pablo Isla, Deputy Chairman and CEO of Inditex.

Mr. Herrera pointed out during his speech the opportunities that the implementation of the new infrastructures is bringing to the region, as well as the promotion for job creation that this kind of initiatives entail. Meanwhile, Mr Pablo Isla spoke of the elements that favoured the choice of León to set up this logistics platform, particularly the availability of the human resources fit to meet Inditex's high quality demands.

Inditex purchased in December 2005 several plots spreading over 66,000 m2 at Onzonillas'Industrial Estate, over which 40,000 m² industrial premises were built, with an investment of €15 million.

Staff of the new platform is currently comprised of some 100 individuals, further to an initial recruitment process conducted over the last months, and a gradual enlargement to 200 employees is expected.

In order to set in train this new hub in León, Inditex has taken into consideration the geographical situation and the availability of a proper transport infrastructure network, which are key for the development of the activity of this centre in León, which shall be supplementary to that conducted at the Arteixo (A Coruña) and Zaragoza distribution centres.

New logistics platforms
To the new centre today launched, a new distribution centre shall be added, which Inditex is currently building in Meco (Madrid) and which will begin running in 2007. The building of these platforms, together with a series of improvement and consolidation steps performed on the existing logistics centres, are part of the Logistics Development Plan that Inditex is implementing, aimed at ensuring that the distribution capacity of the Group is kept in line with the expansion of the eight commercial formats of the Group.
