Evergreen Marine Corporation’s logistics park development in Dayuan District in Taoyuan, Taiwan, is progressing well, with the facility set for completion in late 2021.
According to the Taiwanese liner operator’s TW$2.6 billion (US$884.66 million) plan, there will be a four-storey warehouse and a seven-storey office building, with storage space of about 115,710m2 and an office area of 6,215m2.
The warehouse has an area of 1.16 million m2, and the second storey of the warehouse is a mezzanine floor. All floors of the warehouse have driveways for container trucks. The third to fifth storeys have respective heights of 9.9m, 7.3m and 7.3m. Accordingly, the clearance heights for vehicles wishing to enter the third to fifth storeys of the warehouse are 8.6m, 6m and 6m, respectively.
Work on the facility began on 18 February 2020. The logistics park is close to both Taoyuan Airport and Taipei Port, making for convenient storage for sea and air transportation.
Speaking at a recent seminar, Evergreen executive Chen I-Chung said that having suitable warehousing services is integral to the entire container transportation supply chain.
He said, “There are relatively few modern digital warehouses that can be driven to the second floor or above to store goods in logistics vehicles. Because of this feature, the logistics park can serve a wider range of customers, including e-commerce retailers, importers and exporters.”
Chen added that with the rapid development of online shopping and cross-border e-commerce in recent years, the speed of goods delivery has become key to e-commerce players' grabbing market share, which in turn drives the continuous growth of warehousing demand.
