Miebach Consulting compliments SKF Logistics Services China for the official inauguration of its new North-East Asian Distribution Center (DC) on 10 June 2014. Located in the WaiGaoQiao Free Trade Zone, between downtown Shanghai and PuDong International Airport, the new DC allows fast and reliable shipping across China and the entire North East Asian region including Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. Miebach Consulting has supported SKF with concept design for the warehouse as well as detail design and project management support during all subsequent project phases: from tendering phase to procurement, erection and commissioning of the material handling equipment.
The new structure has a covered surface in excess of 26.000 m², with modern and advanced warehouse technology and equipment, including a 30-meter high automated storage and retrieval system for pallets. This ASRS has a capacity of over 30’000 pallet locations and is ready to be further expanded. All intralogistics processes are fully integrated, as per the well-established standards of the SKF group. SKF Logistics Services China is capable of processing from this site several thousand order-lines daily, including full pallet, mixed pallet and carton shipping.
“The SKF project underlines our ability to serve large scale projects in the fast growing Chinese market. Further expanding our Chinese activities reflects our confidence that highly automated solutions in warehouse design and intralogistics will be a key requirement in this increasingly competitive environment”, says Dominik Bühring, Country Manager Miebach China.
