Tigers relocates to new Shanghai facility to accommodate e-fulfilment demand

The Sino-European relationship, often seen by both as enormously beneficial, is coming under increased strain.

Tigers has relocated to a new facility in Shanghai, which it will use for both contract logistics and freight forwarding operations, serving clients across numerous sectors.

The new facility, which is located close to Yangshan Port, has a dual warehouse model, which will allow Tigers to offer scalable solutions to B2B and B2C customers across domestic and international markets.

“Our improved warehouse layout at the new facility has afforded us an increase of 34 per cent in pallet spaces, equivalent to 4000 pallets, and a floor space increase of 50 per cent,” said Laura Crow, Managing Director, China, Tigers.

“Our previous facility was operating at maximum capacity for over a year, leaving us with no space to grow, and limiting our operational efficiency and ability to meet an ever-growing customer demand for complex e-commerce projects.

“Our new warehouse complex will allow us to continue to review our product and ensure it remains fit for purpose as our e-commerce fulfilment operations develop in the region.”

The new 3,779 sq m facility, equipped with 10 m high racks and a mezzanine shelving system, is dedicated to complex pick and pack projects, offering sea and air freight consolidation and export, global omni-channel fulfilment, China domestic distribution, and a variety of value added services.

“The new operation strengthens our e-commerce operations for international brands entering China and the APAC region,” added Crow.

“Working in tandem with our bonded operations in Shanghai, we will continue to support foreign brands to get a foothold in the China market by providing import Customs brokerage.”

The new facility will serve clients from a range of industries, including domestic distribution of spare parts for the automotive and lighting industry, apparel export to retailers in Australia and the European Union, and Tmall (Alibaba’s flagship B2C website) domestic fulfilment.
