Also in this area, specifically in Tuxtla Gutiérrez (Chiapas), the company is building a new distribution center.

The network redesign plan of Farmacias del Ahorro includes the renovation of infrastructure and also the optimization of operational processes in each distribution centers in order to maximize productivity and to increase customer service levels.

New distribution center in Tuxtla Gutiérrez built on 15,000 m²

Once completed, the new DC of Farmacias del Ahorro will be built on 15,000 m² including: storage areas, picking areas, reception and expeditions areas and a reverse logistics area, as well as a service zone. The center will have enough capacity to host the own fleet of cargo and also the flow of suppliers vehicles.
