Agility Logistics has opened a new warehouse in Hong Kong to meet growing demand from the retail and electronics sectors.
The 42,650 square-foot facility is located in the Yuen Long District, close to the border with mainland China. Handling activities are on a single level, eliminating the traditional local market reliance on cargo lift access, which Agility claims reduces efficiency.
James Gagne, Agility CEO for Greater China, said there was currently a shortage of high-quality warehousing in Hong Kong due to rising demand for specialized logistics services from customers in Hong Kong and South China.
“This new facility will also enable us to consolidate many of our operations under one roof, particularly for our customers in the electronics and retail sector,” Gagne said. “This will help us improve efficiency and drive down supply chain costs.”
The warehouse features dust-free and static-free zones for electronics components, climate-controlled areas for temperature-sensitive products and an average high ceiling clearance of 8.2 meters to cater to five-tier storage racking systems.
