Company’s total warehousing footprint in the country will cross 300,000sqft with this new facility
AP Moller–Maersk (Maersk) is expanding its warehousing footprint in Bangladesh with a brand new 100,000sqft facility being built in Chattogram.
The upcoming facility is strategically located close to the Chattogram Port and easily connected to the Dhaka-Chattogram Highway, giving easy access to Bangladesh’s garment exporters based out of the nearby manufacturing hubs.
“We realised that the demand for warehousing space was rising and decided to undertake measures that could address this requirement proactively,” commented Angshuman Mustafi, Head of Maersk, Bangladesh
Maersk Bangladesh has partnered with Vertex Off-Dock Logistics Services Limited to commission the new three-storied facility. The lift, conveyor belt and slider-operated warehouse will ensure higher productivity.
Internal and external parking facilities will allow for a higher number of trucks and vans to be accommodated within the warehouse. While the current facility will be 1000,000sqft, Maersk has access to more space in case of expansion in the future.
Imran Fahim Noor, Managing Director, Vertex Off-Dock Logistics Services, said, “By building efficient warehouses, we are catering to the demand of the country’s exporters and addressing their requirements to the level of international standards.”
