Maersk breaks ground on new warehouse in the Philippines

A.P. Moller-Maersk (Maersk) has opened a new 100,000 square-metre warehouse in Calamba, Laguna.

The ground-breaking ceremony was held on 9 November.

The new warehouse will connect to the regional industrial centre and is set to enhance Maersk’s overall warehouse and distribution footprint in the Philippines.

The facility will be operated by the newly formed company’s omnichannel-fulfilment team – following its acquisition of the contract logistics company – LF Logistics.

The new facility is slated for completion by the end of 2023.

“Maersk’s strategic ambition is to connect and simplify our customers’ supply chains,” said Erry Hardianto, Area Managing Director of Maersk Indonesia and Philippines.

“With combining LF Logistics’ strength in the Philippines and strong expertise in our omnichannel-fulfilment operations, we will extend the scope of our logistics offerings closer to the end-consumers.

Expanding the warehousing footprint and omnichannel-fulfilment competence is crucial to our strategic growth, and I’m very glad that we’ll make another step forward with this new facility.”

The facility will integrate LF Logistics’ key service offerings into Maersk’s product portfolios, including value-added services, distribution services, order management, and end-to-end E-commerce.

It will have a 75,000-pallet storage capacity with state-of-the-art distribution centre technologies like pallet shuttles, automated sortation, put-to-light, yard management systems, and track-and-trace capabilities.

The build-to-specification agreement has been signed with local developer Precos, Inc., guaranteeing a 15-year lease.

In addition, Maersk is planning to build the first warehouse in the Philippines to be Gold Certified in LEED rating system (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), promoting sustainability in eco-friendly practices from design to development.

Maersk continued its record streak in the third quarter of 2022, registering the 16th quarter in a row with year-on-year earnings growth.

Revenue for Q3 increased to $22.8 billion or by 37 per cent compared to the same period last year.
