Spanish Mercadona is investing EUR 225 M in Portugal’s logistics sector in Almeirim, Santarém, that is a one-hour drive north of Lisbon. The company intends to create 500 new jobs by 2024.


Mercadona supermarkets is building its new logistics centre in Santarém and expects it to be operational in 2024. The centre will have an area of 120,000 sq. m, with a cold store of 47,000 sq. m, a dry goods store of 50,000 sq. m as well as offices.


The centre will be using solar energy to optimize energy consumption and will have 15,000 solar panels, that is an investment of EUR 6.5 million. Mercadona is therefore ensuring that 25% of energy consumption will be green.


It is to be noted that Mercadona inaugurated its first logistics centre in Porto in 2019 at a cost of EUR 60 million and extended the centre at a cost of EUR 25.5 million. Mercadona has a network of 16 logistics centres and distributes to 1,600 supermarkets in Portugal and Spain.
