A new depot in the Lyon region for GEODIS
GEODIS has opened a new 5,000 m² distribution depot in Saint-Priest to the south of Lyon. The new site boosts the Group's presence in the Rhône department by increasing its total ‘parcel-transport’ warehouse surface area to 46,000 m².
With the new depot, opened in late September, GEODIS is better equipped than ever to respond to the growing needs of its customers in the Rhône department. The Saint-Priest facility, the Group's third in the department, clearly strengthens GEODIS' ability to service the region significantly.
With a surface area of 5,000 m2 and 100 docking bays, the site employees 27 operatives and can ship and receive 1,200 parcels and pallets a day. "Distribution & Express covers the Rhône-Alpes with its 14 depots across the entire region. This new platform in Lyon is an integral part of our development and strengthens our territorial coverage to bring us ever closer to our customers," says Olivier Mélot, Executive Vice President, Distribution & Express, GEODIS.
