Luís Simões has just strengthened its presence in the southern region of the country, increasing its storage capacity in the Faroese Market (MARF) by 100%. LS now has 3,000m2 in that logistics platform which, in addition to ensuring the Capilar Distribution in the Algarve region, now guarantees the local operation of two of Luís Simões' largest customers with permanent stock, offering the entire portfolio of services usual in logistics operations .

In order to be able to respond to the needs of its customers, LS reinforces its presence in the Algarve, which will allow the reduction of the response time to its Clients in this region, namely to the Central Beers and Beverages Society, owner of brands like Sagres and its variants with and without alcohol, Sagres Bohemia and its variants, Luso Water, Luso Fruit, Heineken, Guinness, Strongbow, Bandida do Pomar and Desperados, among others.

Luís Fernandes, Luís Simões Regional Logistics Director "this increase represents a consolidation in the Route-to-Market of the Central Society of Beers and Beverages in the Algarve. We are proud to assume that we have created a more robust solution that allows us to face the seasonality of this regional market, allowing us to reduce the response time of our Customers and improve the quality of service, something that is vital for Luís Simões.

The LS will have an advanced stock, which will result in an annual volume of tens of thousands of units, thus ensuring a closer proximity to the Algarve market and the needs of the Central Beers and Beverages Society. In addition, LS will also create five more jobs, in order to respond to the growth of activity in the region, with a total of 10 employees in this center of operations.

The partnership between Luís Simões and the Central Beers and Beverage Company began in 2007 and involves the activities of stock logistics, picking and distribution. As early as 2017, the two companies strengthened ties by developing a customized solution for this customer from Gaia's logistics operations center to the Horeca and Traditional Trade channel (via Novadis, a company of the SCC Group).
