FM LOGISTIC FRANCE BUILDS ITS 30TH PLATFORM AT HEUDEBOUVILLE (27)

France

Construction of the 30th FM Logistic platform in France began last January at Heudebouville, near Évreux (27).

Initially, this new site, which is expected to be operational at the beginning of 2018, will house classified cosmetics in 3 storage compartments measuring 3,000 m² each. Eventually, the platform will have 6 compartments and a total warehouse area of 21,000 m², with the aim of hosting other customers in the cosmetics and pharmacy sectors.

 

A new-generation platform

This project, which represents an investment of 10 million Euros, also has 350 m² of ancillary space including technical rooms and the gatehouse, 180 m² of offices and several car parks. Eventually, the platform will have 700 m² of offices and 200 m² of ancillary buildings.

 

In line with the FM Logistic group's commitments, the Heudebouville platform meets the latest standards in terms of energy savings: insulation of the building (façade and roof, 100% LED lighting, car parks equipped with electric vehicle charging stations, limitation of water consumption (push-button flushes, etc.) and electricity consumption (motion detectors). In addition, a landscaping study is underway to create a natural, wooded environment around the platform.

 

A project supported by the urban community authority

The Seine-Eure urban community has been particularly involved in the steps leading up to the construction of the Heudebouville platform. The latter is expected to create a significant number of jobs. Initially, 18 employees will work at the new warehouse, with almost 25,409 pallets loaded per year and some 587,345 packages prepared.

 

Furthermore, the platform's location close to the road infrastructure (A13 and A154 motorways in particular) and its strategic geographical location not far from Cosmetic Valley (the world's leading perfumery and cosmetics resource centre) are what motivated FM Logistic France's choice of this site.
