Opening third Action import hub in Gonfreville-l’Orcher (France)
On June 16, Action celebrated the official opening of their third import hub in Gonfreville-l’Orcher, France, near to the port of Le Havre. Just as the import hubs in Marseille (FR) and Wroclaw (PL), this third hub will be operated by our logistic partner Katoen Natie. This is an extra milestone in our collaboration together. We would like thank them and all Action colleagues involved for their efforts in opening this new hub.
With a storage capacity of 14.000 pallets, this hub will receive containers from the Far East and deliver Action’s direct import assortment to the distribution centers (DCs) in Moissy and Verrières-en-Anjou, France.
Reducing the transportation distances
Thanks to this new hub in Gonfreville-l’Orcher, Action will significantly reduce the transportation distance within Europe to its DCs and therefore further reduce its CO2 emission. This is an important step in not only optimizing our multi-tier supply chain strategy, but also the sustainability strategy of Action.
