Cape Town - The Shoprite Group's new Cilmor distribution centre in Brackenfell, Cape Town, spans 123 000m² and is described by the group as one of the most technologically advanced distribution centres on the African continent.

It consolidates the activities of five different distribution centres spread throughout Cape Town and provides jobs for about 3 500 people at the facility and a further about 500 people indirectly. The centre consolidates about 500 suppliers and it is anticipated that about 20 000 products will be stored there.

Construction of Cilmor began in February 2016. Its name is derived from farmer Cecil Morgan (Cilmor) who formerly owned the land.
