Our distribution center in Tilburg is over 82,000 m2. The building has a BREEAM 5 star certificate, the highest attainable in the field of sustainability. All online orders are sent to customers from this distribution center and all stores are also stocked.
The distribution center distinguishes itself in the field of sustainability. The roof contains about 17,000 m2 of solar panels that generate enough electricity to supply both the building and more than 600 households with power. It is an energy neutral building where no use is made of gas. In addition, the building is effectively cooled and heated by using heat pumps and a thermal storage system (heat and cold storage through which ground energy is used for heating and cooling the building).
The distribution center also has special packing machines that cut boxes to size, so that less packaging material is used and less air is transported. The latest techniques have been applied in the field of green plan, waste separation and the like. The entire building therefore receives the highest attainable certificate in the field of sustainable construction: BREEAM 5 stars.
The operational implementation is done by our logistics partner Ingram Micro.
