Lödige Industries has won a contract to deliver an automated material handling system for Alibaba’s logistics arm Cainiao Network at Hong Kong International Airport.
The installation will be used at Caniao Smart Gateway, a ‘smart’ logistics hub considered to be Hong Kong’s third largest logistics centre, which is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2023.
Lödige will provide Cainiao with an innovative handling system for the receipt, delivery, storage, retrieval, transhipment and sorting of air cargo.
Cainiao’s Hong Kong logistics facility will provide warehousing and distribution services under the Alibaba electronic World Trade Platform (eWTP), a private sector-led and multi-stakeholder initiative that was set up to lower trade barriers and provide more equitable access through global trade facilitation for businesses and consumers around the world.
“We understand the unique pressures e-commerce operations face and we are very pleased that we can support in achieving its goals with automation solutions from Lödige Industries to ensure processes are streamlined while productivity and efficiency remain high,” said Nicholas Tripptree, managing director in Asia Pacific.
