Tigers opens new facility in Sydney
Tigers has opened a new omni-channel facility in Yennora, Sydney, Australia to meet rising demand in domestic and cross-border e-commerce for B2B, B2C fulfilment and retail scan pack.
The omni-channel warehouse is fitted with Tigers’ automated transport sortation system and smarthub:connect technologies that enable customers to manage orders and view their inventory remotely.
The new facility expands Tigers’ processing capacity at its Sydney operations to 17,000 pallet locations. “E-commerce in Australia will increase not only for domestic but also international (cross-border) trade, and our new Sydney facility is expected to handle an initial 20% of our B2C e-commerce traffic, with predicted yearly increases,” said Frank Cafasso, managing director Tigers Australia.
The new location is part of Tigers’ two-year strategy to invest in e-commerce and B2B verticals. Similar facilities are planned for construction in Sydney and Melbourne. (mw)
