Kerry Logistics has broken ground to expand its Chongqing logistics centre just months after the completion of the first phase of the building, to meet growth in demand.
This second phase of the construction project is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2013.
The 675,000 sq ft site will include space for warehousing and value-added services, housed in two towers, each four storeys high.
Edwardo Erni, managing director, Mainland China, said: “Chongqing is one of the fastest growing cities in Western China and we have seen a rapid increase in demand for warehousing and logistics services. We have completed the first phase of the logistics centre, with an area of 220,000 sq ft, in the first quarter of this year.”
Kerry is targeting the auto spare parts, electronics, hi-tech and telecommunications sectors to provide integrated logistics services such as VMI, pick-and-pack, labelling, packing and re-packing.
