The logistics company Seur has added two warehouses to its sites in Ourense and Vitoria-Gasteiz in Spain, increasing their surface areas to 4,000m2 and 5,300m2 respectively.
Despite its name, the Ourense center is 5km from Ourense, in the San Cibrao das Viñas industrial park. The new warehouse adds 1,000m2 to the previous one, bringing the total to 4,000m2 , of which 1,500m2 are for the logistics storage area and cold storage. The site has a sorting belt with 12 ramps, giving it the capacity to supply 46 vans simultaneously.
This means that Seur’s new warehouse has sufficient capacity to cope with the 66% increase in daily shipments since Black Friday, which is expected to continue for the rest of the Christmas campaign. Specifically, these developments are designed to enable Seur to meet increased demand in the regions of Galicia, Ourense, Deza and Tabeirós-Terra de Montes.
The warehouse also has electric charging points to accommodate Seur’s regional zero-emission delivery fleet and further the company’s aim to carry out 100% sustainable deliveries in 20 Spanish cities by 2025. In addition, this center has a direct point of sale, where customers can send or pick up their orders in person.
The Vitoria-Gasteiz logistics center is in the CTV (Centro de Transporte de Vitoria) within the Jundiz Industrial Park and has been expanded by 2,800m2 to increase the company’s logistics capacity and improve service in the area. The new warehouse increases the company’s logistics surface area from 2,500m2 to 5,300m2 , enabling it to increase its daily shipments by 37%. It also has a cold chamber that enables the delivery of fresh products in the area thanks to Seur’s cold service and provides customers with a point of sale where they can manage deliveries in person.
The goal of this new site is to meet the growing demand for deliveries due to the boom in e-commerce in the delivery area of the Basque capital. To this end, Seur has installed technological systems within the facility that allow for greater efficiency in the management of packages.
In addition to increasing the logistics area and reinforcing operations with technology, for the upcoming Christmas campaign, which kicked off on Black Friday, the workforce has been increased by 30%, including delivery personnel and staff in charge of internal warehouse operations.
