Arvato Supply Chain Solutions and the H&M Group laid the cornerstone for the expansion of the distribution center in Stryków, Poland. The two partners, who have been working together in Poland since 2018, are extending their cooperation in Poland by several years. The expansion project is necessary in order to further strengthen a flexible capacity structure with fast process flows within the logistics region East Europe. Warehouse size will be expanded from 40,000 to 55,000 square meters by April 2022, increasing annual outbound capacity by around 30 percent. Currently, online customers in Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria and Slovakia are supplied out of Stryków.
“We are very pleased to continue our trustful partnership with the H&M Group,” says Lidia Ratajczak-Kluck, Managing Director of Arvato Supply Chain Solutions in Poland. “The key factor for the client is our focused customer- driven quality level of our services.”
The contract extension also marks the start of expansions at the Stryków distribution center, scheduled for completion in around six months. The logistics center will have a total storage area of 75,000 square meters on two levels, including the mezzanine. Further construction will soon follow with the completion of the high-bay warehouse and the expansion of the conveyor system to extend it to a total length of over 3.5 kilometers.
