50.0% of additional capacity will be reserved for anticipated new clients
Just months after opening its latest multi-user warehouse, located in Werne, Germany, rapidly-growing business has led Imperial to expand the facility’s capacity by 30.0%, with the leasing of a further adjacent unit.
The additional space brings the total under-cover storage area to almost 30,000 m2. The extra warehousing will be part-racked for pallets, while some of the new floor space will be left open for handling and storing of outsize goods.
The facility now has a total of 25 truck doors, together with a large yard and parking area of 7,000 sqm. which is ideal for manoeuvring large items. The complex also features container loading and unloading facilities, and incorporates a paperless order picking system.
The expansion of the facility has been necessitated by organic business growth within the facility’s two launch customers, but some 50.0% of the additional capacity created will be reserved for anticipated new clients.
The Company’s multi-user warehousing concept is already facilitating major efficiencies for two launch customers at the site, and is gaining considerable attention among other potential customers.
A key to the early success of the facility has been its location, which provides easy access to Germany’s A1 and A2 autobahns. The area is also well-served by courier and express companies.
