Rendering of New Lidl Logistics Center in Granada
The company will invest €85 million in this logistics platform
Lidl started recently to build its new logistic platform in Escuzar (Granada) with the aim to further grown in Andalusia. This projected center, which entails an investment of about € 85 million, should be commissioned in mid-2023. With a surface area of over 65,000 m2, the Escuzar center will be amongst the largest in Spain and the third owned by Lidl in Andalusia, after those of Malaga and Dos Hermanas (Seville). This operation was launched by Lidl to balance out logistic resources and development, so as to continue creating wealth with its plan for expansion, creation of quality jobs and purchase of Andalusian products.
With this logistics center, Lidl intends to consolidate its position as an important economic driving force for Andalusia, where the supermarket chain has a network of over 120 stores and employs more than 2,900 people. In addition, this German company has purchased over €1.37 billion in regional products from more than 70 suppliers, translating into about 27,400 direct, indirect and induced jobs and a GDP contribution exceeding €1.28 billion (0.85% of the total).
