Tesco to open major distribution hub in Poland

Tesco is to open a major new distribution hub in Poland, ending speculation the grocer was gearing up to abandon the Eastern European market, British newspaper the Telegraph said.

The new center will be located in Poznań and will be Tesco’s main warehouse for the region, servicing 140 of its stores from September.

Adam Manikowski, chief executive of Tesco Poland, said the new center, which is being developed by British-based company SEGRO, will reduce the annual mileage of its lorries by 12.9 percent.
