Axfood signs Letter of Intent for highly automated hybrid logistics center

The Swedish food retailer Axfood has signed a Letter of Intent with WITRON for the design and realization of a new Omni-Channel distribution center. One of the largest and most modern logistics centers in Europe will be built northwest of Stockholm. Starting in 2023 the new logistics facility will supply 1,000+ Axfood stores and all Axfood-E-Commerce customers with more than 22,000 different dry goods, fresh products, and frozen food.

In addition to high cost-efficiency, the facility with a size of more than 100,000 square meters / 1,100,000 square feet places special emphasis on environmental friendliness and sustainability. “We are building for the future”, says Klas Balkow, President and CEO of Axfood. “The new logistics center will generate additional competitive advantages for Axfood and at the same time create logistics synergies within the company group. We are investing in a flexible solution to meet the needs of both our stores and our E-Commerce customers.
