The new facility is for a client in the High-Tech sector and is 100,000 square feet in area with an additional 4,500 square feet of office space. The Hong Kong center complements the existing network of distribution centers in Louisville (Kentucky, US), Ontario (California, US) and Venlo (Netherlands) for their client.
Arvato SCM Solutions Head of Asia, Raoul Kuetemeier said, “By building this powerful network, we have set a benchmark that is unparalleled in the industry. We operate all four sites with the same standards, processes, interfaces, all running the same IT setup based on a full end-to-end SAP solution.”
Mr. Kuetemeier added, “From our new site in Hong Kong we serve more than a dozen markets in Asia and are close to the major manufacturing hub in South China.”
The new warehouse is replete with twelve dedicated loading docks to ensure the smooth flow of goods along with 3,000 pallet locations in high racking, 500 shelve bins, 100 pallet locations in temperature-controlled storage and two production lines, including heat shrink wrap capability. RFID is also available at Four in- and outbound gates.
This latest launch is part of Arvato’s contained growth in the sector, Arvato SCM Solutions Senior Director of Hong Kong, Andreas Podwojewski explains, “Hong Kong as a free port with highly efficient import and export processes is ideal for global and regional distribution centers with fast turnover, that’s why we have decided to invest in additional space so that the site will become a multi-user facility in 2019 for high-tech customers.”
