New Semark logistics center in Spain

New Semark logistics center in Spain

Semark, the leading food distribution group in Cantabria (Spain), which manages the supermarkets “Lupa”, “Top Cash”, “Tifer” and “Telco”, is building a distribution platform that will have several warehouses and will be supported by the latest technological installations. Semark has counted on the collaboration with Miebach Consulting throughout the whole process, from the definition of a master plan for its logistic structure, to the design of the warehouse, which will be inaugurated next September.

The Semark logistics center will have a 37,000 m2 warehouse which will be used for dry products (20,000 m2) and refrigerated products (17,000 m2). At a later stage, a second warehouse will be built for frozen products and an automated picking system will be implemented, as well as other company premises.

Semark has invested €40 million in this platform, which will create 350 jobs and supply 171 points of sale in the north of Spain (which, at the time of the opening of the new facility, will be 174). In addition to having state-of-the-art technology, the center is designed to be sustainable and respectful of the environment, with solar panels for the production of sanitary hot water, heat recovery systems, recharging of electric vehicles using renewable energies and the use of digital energy management equipment.

Close collaboration between Semark and Miebach Consulting

Semark has had the support of Miebach Consulting, whose services included the analysis of the current logistics network, the definition of the optimal structure for the future, the feasibility study of a new center and its design.

According to Fidel Gomez, Logistics Director at Semark, "the new facility is a key part of our growth plan and the modernisation of the company's logistics. The support of Miebach's consultants has been a key factor for the success of the project".

Miquel Viella, Director of Engineering at Miebach Consulting, adds: "The success of the work developed by Miebach and Semark is mainly due to the close collaboration between the two companies. Over the last few years, we have jointly carried out several projects, all focused on generating efficiencies and establishing good practices in the area of the supply chain.
