El Corte Inglés has redesigned its entire logistics network to accelerate online sales and compete with Amazon. The group has increased its distribution capacity by using the network of department stores as distribution centers. Thus, unifying inventory and controlling stocks in real time. "Our extensive network of stores allows us to maximize the efficiency of our stock and provides us with a competitive delivery time from our online store, not only in Madrid and Barcelona, ​​but throughout Spain", says El Corte Inglés.

For the distribution of online shopping, the group has a total of 93 centers. Three of which are specialized platforms in Madrid, Barcelona and the Canary Islands. The other 90 department stores have been redesigned to also take on logistics hub operations.

Unbeatable logistics network

El Corte Inglés assures in the brochure of the latest bond issue that its logistics network is unbeatable. This is because it can reach a total of 2,000 stores in Spain. 82% of Spaniards have an establishment less than 40 minutes away by car from these stores. In addition, the objective is to promote in-store collection through services such as Click&Collect or Click&Car.

Deliveries in less than two hours

At the moment, with all this it has been possible to make the deliveries in less than two hours or in the chosen time slot in 67% of the existing postal codes in Spain. According to the group, the flexibility and service offered by our e-commerce offering has contributed to positioning us as the number one e-commerce retailer with omnichannel capabilities in the Spanish market, and the second-largest online retailer in Spain in 2019 only behind Amazon.
