An additional 15,000 square metres has been added to the PT GAC Samudera Logistics (GSL) warehouse & distribution centre in Lippo Cikarang.
The addition boosts the company's standing as one of Indonesia's largest third-party logistics (3PL) providers.
The new facility opened by PT GAC Samudera, a joint venture between global shipping, logistics and marine services provider GAC and the Samudera Indonesia Group, now covers 36,000 square metres and offers 60,500 pallet positions, making it the largest single-unit distribution facility in the GAC Group.
Based in West Java's largest industrial area 45 km from Jakarta Airport, the centre is designed to provide customers with cost-effective warehousing solutions on a monthly 'pay by use' basis, providing flexible storage solutions based on seasonal demand or market fluctuation. It is
equipped with a docking area, canopy, finger dock, generator set, dock leveler and parking to avoid the bottlenecks and delays common at leased
facilities in the area. Every day, more than 100 trucks leave the distribution centre for more than 120 destinations.
The Phase IV extension completes the Cikarang development, and will enable GAC Samudera Logistics to cater for the organic growth of existing long term customers, providing them with end to end logistics solutions in the most cost effective way. According to Managing Director Hari Krishnan, the company will continue to grow beyond its strategic locations in Cikarang, Medan and Surabaya.
