Combines three previous fulfilment facilities into all-encompassing support complex
ToysRUs has completed its new distribution centre in Saint-Fargeau-Ponthierry, France to support the Company's rapidly expanding eCommerce business throughout the country and in select sections of Europe. The 51,000 m2 facility will service retail distribution to the country's 48 store locations and eCommerce operations throughout France, as well as expedite online order fulfilment to customers in Belgium, Luxembourg and Monaco.
Located approximately 47 kilometres (29 miles) south of Paris, the logistics campus became operationally functional in late May, and the adjacent headquarters for ToysRUs, France is scheduled to open on June 22.
The Saint-Fargeau Logistics Campus, inclusive of the fulfilment centre and headquarters office, will employ approximately 350 full- and part-time employees at the peak of the holiday season.
The facility creates greater operational efficiencies, while allowing the retailer to better serve customers through growing omnichannel capabilities in Europe. The Campus provides a single point of distribution from which to ensure the hottest toys and baby products are always available for consumers, whenever, wherever and however they choose to shop.
Chosen for its strategic location near Paris, the Saint-Fargeau Logistics Campus features more than 20 receiving areas, nearly 60 shipping docks and services up to 80 trucks per day. The building contains a technologically advanced and environmentally friendly automated conveyor system, significantly increasing overall service and storage capacity. As a result of these enhancements, inbound and outbound transport from the facility will be greatly streamlined.
The facility has built in additional storage space for potential future expansion.
