FM Logistic, a leading provider of logistics and transportation services, has broken ground on its new multi-client logistics facility (MCF) in Jhajjar, near Gurugram, Haryana. This warehouse, which is expected to be completed in December 2020, is part of the five-year, $150 million investment plan the company announced on March 2019. Located on a 31-acre site, the future facility will provide cutting-edge warehousing, handling, value-added and omnichannel services to FM Logistic’s clients in the Northern Region of India. The construction of the warehouse will be supervised by NG Concept, the real-estate sister company of FM Logistic.
Stéphane Descarpentries, Director for Asia and strategic projects, FM Logistic, said: “This new warehouse near Delhi fits into our strategy of constructing multi-client warehouses near major Indian cities, such as Mumbai, Bangalore and Calcutta. All these facilities will meet our customers’ expectations in terms of cost-efficiency, warehouse space optimisation, product safety and capacity flexibility. They also answer the demand for fewer, bigger distribution centres, which is driven by the GST.”
The new warehouse will have a storage capacity of 100,000 pallet positions and provide a dedicated area for co-packing and other value-added services. Furnished with safety and security features, the warehouse will offer cost-efficient, quality storage and handling services. It will also allow for good working conditions, in addition to respecting the environment.
Highlighting the key features of the facility, Alexandre Amine Soufiani, Managing Director, FM Logistic India said, “With a built-up area of 700,000 sq. ft., the Jhajjar MCF enjoys strategic access to the Kundali, Manesar and Palwal expressways for faster connectivity to all major consumption centres in the Northern Region.
Alexandre Amine added, “FM Logistic aims to strengthen its leading position in India, thanks to a good combination of multi-client and dedicated sites responding to customer needs, the management of a global supply chain (warehousing, distribution, value-added services) according to an omnichannel model (B2B and B2C), innovation, sustainable development and social responsibility. I sincerely thank our customers and employees for their trust.”
Jeremy Lefevre, Construction Director Asia, NG Concept, said, “The new A-plus grade facility will be the first in India to combine LEED-certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), FM Global fire-fighting and natural hazards protection, and high-quality insulation and ventilation."
