Wal-Mart expands distribution center
Adjust font size:

An expanded distribution center for Wal-Mart in north China's Tianjin has been completed to meet the growing demand of the world's leading retailer's business in the Chinese market.


The expanded center in Tianjin's Beichen district, can handle 330,000 packages of goods, quadrupling the capacity of the original one, according to Gao Jian, a logistics and distribution officer at Wal-Mart.


The center is the second for Wal-Mart on the Chinese mainland. The other is in the southern coastal city of Shenzhen.


The Tianjin distribution center will supply goods to up to 90 Wal-Mart stores. Currently, it is responsible for supplying goods to 28 super centers and one Sam's club in north China.


The center in Tianjin, which was built in 2003, began to be expanded last year.


Wal-Mart has opened 91 stores on the Chinese mainland since its entry into China in 1996.
