PSA/Peugeot Citroen will close a warehouse near Paris

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

As part of a plan to revamp its parts distribution activities, PSA/Peugeot Citroen SA will shut down a warehouse near Paris by 2012, according to its spokesman. This warehouse, which has 390 employees, will be closed to make way for a spare parts distribution hub at its site in Vesoul, eastern France, as well as a network of local warehouses.

The spokesman discussed a plan to reorganize the logistics of spare parts, with two strategic axes to concentrate global spare parts logistics for Peugeot and Citroen at the Vesoul site,

PSA will build an entire network of local warehouses for spare parts distribution. He also said that the plan would be shown to the group's works council on April 20.

Under this plan, the Melun-Senart site, which is located just outside Paris, would not be required. The spokesman said that the company would have to "progressively manage the closure of the site."

PSA would also have to resolve the issue of the site's 390 employees. A voluntary redundancy plan, which is now closed to the rest of the group, would be extended for Melun-Senart employees.

About 100 jobs would be created at Vesoul and other jobs would be created at the local warehouses. [via autonews - sub. required]
