FM Logistic France, one of the top international groups in the warehousing, transport and co-packing business continues its development with the signing of a new contract with Europe Snacks
A major player on the European market
With its 4 production sites 50kms away from each others, Europe Snacks was looking to group its production on a single site in order to optimise the loading of its trucks. The French subsidiary of the FM Logistic group was therefore brought in to design a new logistics platform, ideally situated for Europe Snacks, but also for other food manufacturers as part of the a transport pooling scheme.
It was therefore decided to build a logistics site at Hébergement (85), between Nantes and La Roche- sur-Yon. Construction work began in September.
Strengthening national network coverage
It was after careful study of the suitability of the location and the site’s attractiveness to manufacturers in the region that FM Logistic decided to open a site in Vendée; an addition that strengthens the logistics company’s national coverage, as it is mainly present in the region of Paris, Rhône-Alpes, the East and South-East of France, and a departure from the conventional wisdom that the two major conurbations Nantes and Rennes are the best bases in Western France.
The new warehouse, which will be operational from September 2017, will house storage, co-packing and transport activities. Built with the aim of being certified HQE (high environmental quality), the first phase will cover 20,000 m² and eventually it will be expanded to almost 46,000 m² to serve up to four customers.
This site will also enable Europe Snacks to assert its regional anchorage and give a boost to the local jobs market, with 20 new jobs being created when the platform opens, and around a hundred being planned long-term.
