Maersk warehousing

Maersk is expanding its Bangladesh warehousing footprint opening a new 100,000 square foot facility in Chattogram.

The upcoming facility is strategically located close to the Chattogram Port and easily connected to the Dhaka-Chattogram Highway through the Outer Ring Road and Karnaphuly Tunnel, giving easy access to Bangladesh’s garment exporters based out of the nearby manufacturing hubs.

The warehouse will be open in December 2022.

Bangladesh is witnessing significant growth in garments exports.

However, the warehousing footprint in Chattogram has not increased proportionally, the company wrote.

Angshuman Mustafi, Head of Maersk, Bangladesh, commented: “The last two to three years have been extremely challenging for Bangladesh’s exporters: The COVID-19 pandemic caused many disruptions in the supply chains.

“The acute imbalance in demand and supply of goods, bottlenecks in the logistics ecosystem, displaced workforce and congestion at ports and warehouses led to unforeseen challenges in 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.

Maersk also has access to more space in case of expansion in the future.

In February Maersk Bangladesh partnered with Ispahani Summit Alliance Terminals Limited (ISATL) to build a 200,000-square-foot custom bonded warehouse in Chattogram.
