The distribution centre will consist of 22,000 pallet positions with both ambient and temperature-controlled facilities. The distribution centre’s operation will run on an integrated IT platform that encompasses warehouse management, distribution management and yard management capabilities with barcode and RFID enabled infrastructure.
The container yard is expected to be operational by early June 2017 and the distribution centre by February 2018.
