The multi-user facility extends the Rhenus capabilities in supporting the chemical industries in India, a major market that faces growing demand in the chemical sector.
Rhenus Warehousing Solutions India has opened a new 210,000-square feet chemical warehouse in Jamalpur, India. Built with sustainable warehousing and safety in mind, the warehouse is the latest of India’s leading global logistics service provider’s plans to expand its capabilities to offer individual solutions and value-added services in the chemical and dangerous goods sectors. With good connectivity to major terminals, inland container depots (ICDs) and industrial hubs, the facility will serve the ever-growing market requirements in the vicinity and beyond.
According to a recent market study by Technavio, the global chemical warehousing and storage market is expected to increase by USD 6.65 billion from 2020 to 2025, at an accelerated CAGR of 3.71 per cent. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region will register the highest growth rate of 50 per cent compared to the other regions. Countries, including India, are major contributors to the growth in the APAC region market.
“The increasing demand for commodity and speciality chemicals, in particular, is expected to impact India’s distribution and warehousing needs. Rhenus is poised to meet this need by growing our storage capacity in the country while introducing sustainable warehousing practices,” said Marcus Fornell, Director of Rhenus Warehousing Solutions India.
Balancing operational efficiency and sustainability, the chemical facility is equipped with 18,000 pallet positions with a load capacity of 1.1 tons per pallet and houses 19 docks with top-of-the-class infrastructure such as automated roller shutters and hydraulic dock levellers. Sustainable features such as skylights to maximise the use of natural light, energy-efficient lighting, a passive ventilation system, and a green belt within the warehouse premises reduce the warehouse’s carbon footprint. Dedicated fire detection, management facilities and a 24/7 CCTV monitoring system provide customers with peace of mind for their cargo storage.
With the opening of this new site, Rhenus Warehousing Solutions is continuing to expand its existing network In India, with over 31 warehouses offering 2.4 million square feet of warehousing space and over 2,000 professionally qualified employees across 70 offices in India.
