Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has announced a €28m lease and development investment with New Zealand’s Auckland Airport to establish a new ambient warehousing complex dedicated to multinational manufacturer Techtronic Industries (TTI).
The 19,200 sq m complex is located directly at Auckland Airport and will begin operations in July. Hellmann will handle full-service contract logistics services for its long-standing customer TTI.
The facility will offer storage for up to 29,000 pallets at up to ten pallet levels high.
Chris McCagney, managing director Hellmann New Zealand said: “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.”
TTI Australia and New Zealand chief financial officer and chief operating officer Grant Edhouse said: “We needed a new facility with a longer-term contract logistics arrangement to support our future growth.
“The extended height, capacity, operational efficiency and flexibility of the complex has been specifically developed to cater for TTI’s needs for a considerable period of time. By consolidating our operations into this new complex, we will be able to optimize and future proof our supply chain to the benefit of our retail partners and end users of our products.”
