New distribution center in Novosibirsk is the first location of "METROCash & Carry" in Syberia. The opening that took place more than 3,000 km away from Moscow represents a great challenge as far as logistics is concerned. "METRO Cash & Carry" is the pioneer in that region and it helps in establishment of efficient transportation and retailing structure. Trucks, for example, must be equipped with the up-to-date air conditioning systems in order to keep food cool in summer and warm during winter.
That is the only way for professional buyers to always find high-quality products on the shelves.
