DHL Supply Chain is constructing a new mega warehouse in Shah Alam, Malaysia worth RM100 million (US$31.28 million). The warehouse, to be called Malaysia Integrated Logistics Centre (ILC), has a footprint of more than one million square feet, making it the largest warehouse in Malaysia, and will increase DHL Supply Chain’s warehouse footprint in the country by over 100 per cent.
Prakash Rochlani, managing director, DHL Supply Chain Malaysia said, “It is a momentous day for DHL Supply Chain as we announce the construction of this remarkable facility. The contract logistics market in Malaysia has shown impressive growth in recent years and this trend is forecast to continue. We’ve therefore identified the country as key to our growth strategy and made the important investment.”
Featuring the use of double-ramp system, the facility will provide modern warehousing and supply chain solutions to cater to the growing demands of their local and global customers in the FMCG, technology, and retail markets. The ILC will also be used to grow DHL’s automotive, engineering and manufacturing, and life science and healthcare portfolios.
“We plan to create a true multi-user site to support customers across a broad spectrum of industries who will benefit from the synergies created from sharing resources. Warehousing services will be offered with a wide variety of complimentary value-added activities designed to optimise our customer’s supply chain activities; including co-packing and technical services,” added Prakash.
