AP Moller-Maersk (Maersk) continues to enhance its omnichannel fulfillment capabilities in the Philippines, adding a 100,000 sqm warehouse in Calamba, Laguna. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 9, 2022, and the new facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
An hour’s drive from Manila, the new warehouse will be connected to the regional industrial hub where major manufacturers operate. The facility will be operated by Maersk’s new omnichannel fulfillment team, following its successful acquisition of contract logistics company – LF Logistics. The total area is nearly three times that of LF Logistics’ current multi-service distribution center in Rizal Province and will further strengthen the overall warehouse and distribution footprint in the Philippines.
Maersk’s strategic ambition is to connect and simplify our customers’ supply chains. By combining the strength of LF Logistics in the Philippines with strong expertise in our omnichannel fulfillment operations, we will extend the reach of our logistics offerings closer to end consumers. Expanding the warehousing footprint and omnichannel fulfillment skills is critical to our strategic growth, and I’m very pleased that we’re taking the next step 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 storage capacity of 75,000 pallets with state-of-the-art fulfillment center technologies like pallet shuttles, automated sorting, lighting, fleet management systems and track and trace capabilities. It will meet the needs of retail, pharmaceutical and e-commerce customers.
Building this mega facility in South Luzon enables us to deliver a more agile, resilient and flexible end-to-end supply chain, complementing the infrastructure and network we have built and maintained over the past two decades in the Philippines. This project will also contribute to creating 800 employment opportunities for the surrounding communities, in line with our corporate social responsibility.
The Build-to-Spec agreement was signed with local developer Precos, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Solid Group, Inc., securing a 15-year lease. Additionally, Maersk is striving to build the first warehouse in the Philippines to be certified Gold in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system, promoting sustainability in environmentally friendly practices from design to development. .
