Arvato opens its second logistics site in Hong Kong

Arvato SCM Solutions has opened a new distribution centre in Hong Kong for one of its global high-tech clients. The new warehouse is Arvato’s second logistics site that has opened in Hong Kong within four years.

The site consists of 100,000 sq ft of logistics area and an office space of ​​4,500 sq ft. The distribution centre is equipped with twelve dedicated loading docks, 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. Four in- and outbound gates are also RFID-enabled.

Raoul Kuetemeier, Head of Asia at Arvato SCM Solutions, commented: “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.

“Hong Kong as a freeport with highly efficient import and export processes is ideal for global and regional distribution centres with fast turnover,” said Andreas Podwojewski, Senior Director of Hong Kong at Arvato SCM Solutions. “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.”

The existing network of Arvato’s distribution centres already includes the sites in Louisville (Kentucky, US), Ontario (California, US) and Venlo (Netherlands). The entire network was designed and implemented within eighteen months on three continents.

“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,” added Raoul Kuetemeier.
