April 12 2022, Mumbai: 3PL service provider FM Logistic India has exponentially expanded its warehousing footprint to service large fulfilment requirements in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) by taking the handover of their 3.7 lakhs sq. ft. facility at Welspun One Logistics Parks’ (WOLP) flagship park in Bhiwandi. The project was delivered as per agreed timelines despite pandemic related lockdowns and disruptions.
With this handover, FM Logistic will have access to Grade-A warehousing facility built to global standards. Park features include circulation and traffic planning to ensure the smooth movement of trucks and pedestrians, being solar-enabled and equipped with industry leading fire safety provisions along with a 12 meter clear height, FM2 densified floors and a sizeable parking area. In addition, advanced features like a tech-enabled platform for park management and maintenance and an IoT-driven traffic management system make the park truly best-in-class. The project is MIDC-approved and is 100% compliant with statutory building, safety and fire norms.
Welspun One’s INR 900 Cr Grade A facility is spread over 110 acres and enjoys excellent connectivity to the Mumbai-Nashik National Highway (NH3), JNPT (Nhava Sheva) Port and Mumbai’s International and Domestic Airport. It is also strategically located 45 km from Mumbai’s CBD and 6 km from Kalyan City, making it an optimal location for FM Logistic to service an important market like MMR having a consumption base of 27 million.
Alexandre-Amine Soufiani, MD – FM Logistic India, said, “One of our prime reasons to associate with Welspun One Logistics Parks is their commitment to enable sustainable use of resources—a philosophy in which we strongly believe. The WOLP Bhiwandi flagship is an IGBC Platinum Pre-certified Green Logistics Park. It is solar-enabled to generate clean electricity and a zero-discharge facility with strategies to minimise water consumption and harvest rainwater. With sufficient amenities for the people working on the site, it is well suited for global corporations like us expanding supply chains in the region. As we strengthen our presence in India’s economic capital through this deal, our facility at Welspun One will help us provide a safe and healthy working environment for our collaborators and boost our service offering to our valued customers.”
Anshul Singhal, MD – Welspun One Logistics Parks, said, “Despite the lockdown and pandemic challenges, I am proud of the team at WOLP who have delivered this project in record timelines and with the desired specs. Our golden rule to earn the respect of our customers is to respect their time. On-time site delivery is of utmost importance to us. FM Logistic is a leading player in the 3PL space and is a very special relationship for us. I wish them good-luck and hope our integrated state-of-the-art facility enhances their operations within the region. Both companies share a strong sense of commitment to customers as well as a focus on high quality and operational excellence.”
