Customer opinion
"Mercadona and the logistics life-time partner WITRON have been maintaining a trustworthy and successful partnership for almost two decades. It goes far beyond a usual customer-supplier relationship. At the locations in Ciempozuelos, Ribarroja, Villadangos, Abrera, Vitoria, Guadix - and in the future also in Parc Sagunt - WITRON has already designed and implemented 14 highly automated projects, from which we currently supply 1,662 stores with goods from the dry, fresh and frozen range. In addition to high cost-efficiency, the solution convinces us with a variety of sustainable benefits - for our stores, our customers, our employees, and for the environment." Rosa Aguado, General Manager Logistics from Mercadona
