Additional Information

Supermarket Albert Heijn has opened a new Home Shop Center in Amsterdam. In this centre,  around 1,000 employees will collect and deliver orders to customers in the nearby area. The opening of the new centre will allow for more capacity and growth, in the region of Amsterdam but also in other regions. This is important for Albert Heijn because the number of customers that orders from AH.nl, the supermarket's website, is growing. 

The refurbished building provides enough energy to supply an electric vehicles fleet which, in the future, shall be the preferred mode of delivery for the supermarket's groceries.
