Germany's REWE opens ecommerce warehouse in challenge to Ocado

COLOGNE, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Germany’s second-largest supermarket chain REWE opened a new logistics centre on Friday for its fast-growing grocery ecommerce business, in a potential blow to Britain’s Ocado which has been signing contracts with other retailers.

REWE is spending about 80 million euros ($94 million) on what it called “one of the most modern logistic centres” in Europe, outside the city of Cologne on a site the size of more than two soccer pitches, with space for 200 delivery trucks.
