Nippon Express to construct new Shanghai warehouse

Nippon Express Global has begun construction on a new warehouse in Shanghai Qingpu Industrial Park.

Situated in the western part of Shanghai, Qingpu Industrial Park was opened in 1995 as an industrial park receiving key municipal-level industrial support, and its location within 50 minutes of central Shanghai has attracted electronics, biotech, and hi-tech companies.

The industrial park is located adjacent to a highway linking Shanghai with cities across Jiangsu Province, which is now developing into a major production area, and growing attention on this strategic logistics location is driving warehouse demand higher.

Nippon Express decided on the construction of this new warehouse, adjacent to an existing warehouse, in order to meet a full range of customers’ logistics needs, including domestic sales logistics for the local area, manufacturing logistics (just-in-time delivery), and storage/distribution using air-conditioned facilities.

The warehouse is scheduled to open in March 2020.
