Nippon Express Global SCM (Shanghai), a local China subsidiary of Nippon Express, has begun construction on a new 24,000 sqm warehouse in Shanghai Qingpu Industrial Park, located mid-way between Shanghai and Suzhou.
Situated in the western part of Shanghai, Qingpu Industrial Park was opened in 1995 as an industrial park receiving key municipal-level industrial support, and its convenient location within 50 minutes of central Shanghai has attracted electronics, biotech, and hi-tech companies. The park has a total area of 56.2 sq km upon completion of all phases.
The industrial park is located adjacent to a highway linking Shanghai with cities across Jiangsu Province, which is now developing into a major production area, with growing attention on this strategic logistics location is driving warehouse demand higher.
Nippon Express Global SCM (Shanghai) says the decision to build the new three-story warehouse, which is to be located adjacent to and on the same lot as an existing warehouse (15,000 sqm), in order to meet a full range of customers’ logistics needs, including domestic sales logistics for the local area, manufacturing logistics (just-in-time delivery), and storage/distribution utilising air-conditioned facilities.
“Nippon Express will be continuing to bolster its logistics functions as it endeavours to totally satisfy the needs of its customers and thereby further expand its global logistics business,” it says.
