Loscam’s executive and regional management team, together with over 100 valued guests, gathered at Erskine Park Sydney for the pallet pooling company’s latest depot opening.
Located at the arterial roads of the M4 and the M7, the facility is expected to enhance operating efficiency, including immediate improvement in truck loading/unloading turnaround, repair capabilities and flexibility.
Occupying a total area of 4.18 hectare, the 4,400m2 depot expands Loscam’s local repair capacity by more than 50 per cent and offers storage capacity exceeding 280,000 pallets.
The facility features a segregated plastics wash bay supported by a rainwater catchment system, an eco-friendly 600m2 office and LED lighting throughout.
Erskine Park is Loscam’s second new facility opened in Australia this year, after the Richland depot in Brisbane in July.
“This key investment further strengthens Loscam Australia’s capability to serve our growing customer base and product range,” said Daniel Bunnett, Executive Vice President of Australia & New Zealand, Loscam. “It also allows us to meet the quality expectations of the market as our customers embrace more automation within their warehouse operations.”
Sirin Limpaitoon, President of Loscam, added: “This new depot has two main objectives – first and foremost, to enhance Loscam’s support to our value customers with development and changes in the supply chain; and second, incorporate environmental friendly elements into each part of our operations. It’s also a solid proof our continuous investment in infrastructure to support the growth of our Australian business.”
