On September 14th Pall-Ex Iberia completed work on its brand new 12,000 m2 hub facility, strategically located in San Fernando de Henares.
The new state-of-the-art building will replace its current warehouse in Madrid and give the business additional capacity to develop their domestic and international palletised freight distribution service.
Enric Estruch, Managing Director of Pall-Ex Iberia comments: “Pall-Ex Iberia has come a long way since its inception almost ten years ago. I am so proud of the network we have established within Spain and Portugal.
“The new space has been purpose-built, meaning we have been able to create a hub which will truly work for us and will benefit our entire membership. We will continue on our journey of growth and innovation within the sector and I look forward to seeing how this new facility can support our aspirations moving forward.”
Within the network’s new central hub, the warehousing space includes 94 docks with the capacity to handle in excess of 6,000 pallets. The building will also house Pall-Ex Iberia’s office staff with additional space for meeting and training rooms.
