In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic shocks, global demand for warehousing is soaring. This is particularly true for leading-edge facilities meeting vital needs close to major markets.
South China’s Port of Nansha, among the world’s five busiest container ports, is rising to meet cold chain logistics challenges with an ultramodern mega-warehouse complex to encompass six massive eight-story buildings with a combined storage capacity of nearly 500,000 tons.
The Nansha International Logistics Center site adjoins the port’s expanding automated terminal facilities and is proximate to the bustling Jiangnan Fruit Market in Guangzhou (formerly Canton) and key population centers throughout the Pearl River Delta, from Shenzhen to Hong Kong and Macao.
With first-phase completion on target for March 2021, Port of Nansha’s largest-in-region cold chain logistics installation, while on the drawing board for more than two years, is indeed coming online at a propitious time.
When completed in mid-2021, Port of Nansha’s cold chain logistics mega-warehouse hub is to offer nearly 500,000 tons of total storage capacity in six buildings, each eight stories high.
