Berlin, January 11, 2018 // Zalando, the leading online fashion platform in Europe, will extend the Stradella fulfillment center with its partner Fiege. In the course of 2018 two additional halls will be added and the capacity will double from about 20,000 sqm to about 40,000 sqm. The number of employees will increase to over 550. Fiege has overseen managing the Stradella site since it was opened in late 2015 and will continue to do so along with the expansion.
The investment into the Stradella fulfilment center and the recent investment in the Verona region, will not only strengthen the service offered to Italian customers but will also speed up the deliveries in Zalando’s Southern European markets. In December 2017 Zalando announced its plans to open a new fulfilment center for the Southern European Market. The new 130,000 sqm site will be located in Nogarole Rocca close to Verona and will create over 1,000 jobs in the medium-term.
“The extension of Stradella is part of our strategic development plan to grow our activities in Italy and in other Southern European markets, focusing on a continuous improvement of the service offered to our clients. The investment in Stradella allows us to answer to the increased demand i.” – commented Jan Bartels, VP Customer Fulfillment & Logistics at Zalando. ”We thank our partner Fiege for the successful collaboration and look forward to this next step.”
“We are really pleased to carry on our collaboration with Zalando” – declared Alberto Birolini, Business Development Manager and Board Member of Fiege Italia – “It is a great example of our ambition to deliver highly customized ecommerce solutions for our partners.“
