Lidl is continuing to invest in Romania by commissioning the first logistics centre in the eastern country near the town of Roman, Neamt county.
Lidl’s 5th warehouse has kicked off activity this month, serving 50 stores in Moldavia region. Stretching on a 133,000sqm plot of land, the 45,000-sqm logistics centre is located in Cordun commune, near Roman and near E85 European road. The warehouse was designed to have a lower carbon footprint and provides almost 200 jobs in Moldavia region, both in operational and administrative areas.
The new logistics centre in Roman comprises several facilities for the employees, such as special locker rooms, a cafeteria and a 138-sqm sitting area which is dubbed by a 100-sqm outdoor patio where employees can have lunch.
According to Vincent Martin, Regional Manager Roman, Lidl Romania, the efficiency is part of the company’s sustainable business strategy and is one of the principles that Lidl is following also in their expansion activity.
Vincent Martin explained that the location of the new logistics centre near E85 road allows them „to optimise the routes of the vehicles“ and helps them „to reduce the impact on the environment“.
