The contract also involves transporting some of the products on behalf of Unilever.
To better serve Unilever, FM Logistic has expanded its capacity in Crépy-en-Valois by 16,700 sq m for a total area of 116,000 sq m. The site now has 22 extra loading docks and storage room for 25,400 additional pallets.
