24/11/2016AirRoad expands operations with additional 3PL warehouse at Pemulwuy in Sydney
Sydney, November 2016: AirRoad will be moving into a brand new, custom-built 100,000 cbm 3PL warehouse at Pemulwuy to enhance its warehousing service and accommodate growing volumes of inventory from its Logistics business. The new facility features 12-metre-high clear span ceilings and is strategically located with direct access to the M4 and M7 motorways, offering convenient access to key industrial areas and the company’s main NSW facility and second warehouse in Lidcombe (Sydney).
AirRoad will be providing 3PL warehousing services out of the new site to its clients. This also includes a temperature controlled unit that can hold approximately 1400 pallets. In addition, a vertical carousel storage system has been installed to enable safe pick and pack operations, supported by new, state-of-the-art mono-mast forklifts.
AirRoad’s Managing Director, Malcolm Thorpe, believes that the warehouse will help streamline operations and deliver a world-class storage service. He says, “We’ve been growing steadily over the years, and are confident that our new flagship facility at Pemulwuy will be able to provide strategic and secure warehousing solutions to our clients. Outsourcing your warehousing requirements to a specialist 3PL service provider offers many benefits and our investment in this new facility reflects our commitment to being a quality service provider.”
Like the rest of AirRoad’s other warehouses, the site will be protected by back to base alarms and 24/7 real-time CCTV surveillance. Traffic flow at the warehouse has been eased by employing both inbound and outbound docks. About fifteen operational staff will also be on-site to help ensure smooth operation.
Sustainable design principles have been incorporated into the design of the new site. Initiatives such as solar hot water, sensor lighting, rainwater harvesting, window shading, passive design, native landscaping and sustainable material selection will help deliver long term environmental benefits for both AirRoad and its clients.
