Logistics service provider Agility has opened a 13,000-square-meter warehouse in Hong Kong to cater to the electronics and retail sectors of Greater China.

The facility is located in the Yuen Long District, close to the border with mainland China. It can be accessed directly via highway from the Kwai Chung container terminals, and is 40 minutes away by road to Hong Kong International Airport.

The site is also near the future sea bridge project that will connect the regions of Pearl River Delta, Macao, and Hong Kong.

“There is a shortage of high-quality warehousing in Hong Kong and a consequent growth in demand from our customers for specialized logistics services in the city,” said James Gagne, Agility’s chief executive officer for Greater China. “This new facility will also enable us to consolidate many of our operations under one roof, particularly for our customers in the electronics and retail sector.”

The warehouse features dust-free and static-free zones for electronics components and climate-controlled areas for temperature-sensitive products. It has an average ceiling clearance of 8.2 meters to cater to five-tier storage racking systems, and one independent bay for every 460 square meters of storage floor area.

Handling activities are on a single-level structure, eliminating the practice of cargo lift access, which restricts efficiency, the company said.
