Imperial opens multi-user warehouse in Werne, Germany

Imperial logistics international’s new facility provides an under-cover storage area of 22,000 square meters, with racking for over 21000 pallets and 11,000 parts bins already installed, and over 8,500 square meters of floor storage space. In addition, the facility features 24 truck doors, a yard and parking area of 7000 square meters, container loading and unloading facilities and a paperless order picking system.
 
The location of the facility provides easy access to Germany’s A1 and A2 autobahns, and is well-served by courier and express companies. Adjacent land is available for potential future expansion.
 
Christian Lohmann, Vice President Commercial Industrial of Imperial Logistics International, said: “This new facility is a further expansion of our proven multi-user warehousing concept, which is now attracting major blue-chip clients. The increased scale of operations we achieve through such a shared facility justifies top-quality resources including the latest technological solutions. Sharing facilities and resources across multiple users also balances out individual clients’ seasonal fluctuations, maintaining optimal utilisation year-round. That enables us to operate a pay-as-you-use billing model, reducing user costs and assisting budgeting and cash flow. In addition, we are able to pass on savings through consolidated purchasing of packaging materials.”
