Auchan France will start building of a new distribution center (DC) in Marne-la-Valee, to the East of Paris in September 2014. The facility will help streamline shipping distances, time and costs and will also fit into Auchan’s engagement of developing High Environmental Quality buildings. The move is part of Auchan’s efforts of consolidating its DCs into fewer and larger facilities which was recently carried out by merging two DCs into one at Eco-Trappes.
