The full-service provider Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has announced a EUR 28 Mio. lease and development investment with Auckland Airport to establish a new 19,200-square-metre ambient warehousing complex dedicated to multinational manufacturer Techtronic Industries (TTI).
The complex is located directly at Auckland Airport and is expected to deliver a new benchmark in efficiency, flexibility and functionality when commissioned in July this year.
From the new warehouse, Hellmann will handle full-service contract logistics services for its long-standing customer TTI.
With the new contract logistics facility, Hellmann is building a warehouse which meets the latest standards in every respect. The ultra-high, 16,000-square-metre ambient warehousing complex and 3200-square-metre cantilevered canopy will enable storage for up to 29,000 pallets at up to ten pallet levels high.
In addition, the new logistics complex which was built to the specifications of the New Zealand Green Building Council, meets the latest requirements for sustainable construction.
“The fact that we built an individually tailored warehouse for TTI further cements Hellmann´s business relationship with the client, which is a world leader in global brands such as MILWAUKEE, AEG and RYOBI power tools.
The new warehouse is designed to build in flexibility and scale to adapt and grow as TTI’s requirements of tomorrow develop. For example, the complex will have no columns and enhanced floor specifications which allows for future investments in innovative robotic-based material handling and automation solutions.
At the same time Hellmann has developed an environmentally-sustainable and highly-efficient facility both for their staff and clients,” says Chris McCagney, Managing Director Hellmann New Zealand.
