Sonepar Breaks Ground on Development of Newest CDC in Italy

Sonepar Breaks Ground on Development of Newest CDC in Italy

Following Sonepar’s acquisition of ElettroVeneta and Demo in 2019, an analysis was made for the redesign of logistics assets for Italy. This analysis led to the construction launch of the company’s soon-to-be-opened Central Distribution Center (CDC) in Padova, Italy.

The supply chain project identified Padova as the prime location for the site as it served as a strategic point of access for developing or consolidating logistics assets between Milan, Rome, and of course Padova itself.

Over the next few months, Sonepar’s logistics team and technical supplier teams will be involved in refining the details of the opening that will start full operations in the final part of 2022.

This project allows for customers to be served from a single supply chain site in the North-East Italian region. The introduction of automation will allow for a significant increase in the capacity in daily lines processed and will consequently improve global product availability and will reduce the number of boxes per shipment.
