U-Freight Refits Fourth Logistics Warehouse in Fine Fashion

The U-Freight Group – www.ufreight.com - the Asia-based freight services organisation, has strengthened its operations in Hong Kong with the opening of a further dedicated, full-service logistics facility after an extensive re-fit and modernisation.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong S.A.R., March 08, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The facility is located in Tsing Yi, close to Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA). UFL has leased the 39,000 sq ft facility that offers around 1,350 pallet positions and is targeted at fast fashion apparel and accessories. The refit, which took two months, has already attracted one new fast fashion customer to UFL, says Simon Wong, Chief Executive Officer of the U-Freight Group.

Mr Wong says: “There is already an excitement within the Hong Kong garment industry about our newly refurbished Tsing Yi. This has translated into a new customer that was attracted by our first-rate facilities and state-of-the-art processes. We’re open for business and we invite any company involved in the city’s vibrant garment and fashion industry to arrange a visit to our facility at Tsing Yi to see for yourself the great facilities available at our premises.”

The warehouse offers cross-docking, storage and daily delivery to stores within the Special Administrative Region (SAR). Goods arriving in Hong Kong from the US and China via UFL air and oceanfreight consolidation services will be handled at the facility.

Simon Wong says: “Tsing Yi is 30 minutes from HKIA and just 10 minutes from Hong Kong port. This means it is in an ideal location and complements our other three logistics locations in Hong Kong to support all industry in the SAR.”

The facility is available around the clock and offers 12 loading docks. The back office functions are handled in modern offices, while the warehouse has security procedures set in accordance with TAPA standards.

The primary function of the warehouse is to provide cross-docking logistics services and temperature-controlled storage and distribution facilities.

With enough racking for the storage of 1,350 pallets, the facility can maintain ambient temperatures between 22 and 24 degrees C and relative humidity between 45 and 70%.

Simon Wong says: “The outsourcing of logistics functions to specialist companies continues apace. By establishing a fourth dedicated logistics warehouse in Hong Kong, U-Freight is in an enviable position to meet the needs of shippers engaged in transporting goods to and from this important region.

“Not only does this new facility add further value to U-Freight Logistics’ full range of services, it is an important development for shippers moving cargoes that are dependent on the regulation and maintenance of ambient temperature and control of atmospheric conditions, including hi-tech electronic components.

“For customers involved in the fashion sector, this new facility provides a very cost effective system for managing the flow of products from receipt of goods, through storage, picking, packing and dispatch.

“Continued investment in infrastructure, enables us to offer a range of niche freight services, as well as complete supply chain solutions and regular transportation services by road, rail, sea and air.”

In addition to the new centre, U-Freight's network now extends to multiple warehouse facilities across the Special Administrative Region, each with its own specialised target market, located at Yuen Long; Kwai Chung and Tokwawan.

Simon Wong concludes: “We refitted this complex in fine fashion. Now we invite Hong Kong’s business community to visit and make use of this first-class facility.”
