Leminar inaugurates central logistics centre in Dubai
Leminar Air Conditioning Company has inaugurated its central logistics centre in the Ras Al Khor industrial area of Dubai, according to Construction Week Online.
The recently expanded 168,000ft2 warehouse has a capacity of 7,531 pallet slots and can accommodate a stock inventory worth up to AED100-million (US $27.2m).
The centre is controlled by an Oracle-based warehouse management system (WMS), which allows Leminar to plan, track and monitor deliveries in an efficient manner, while prioritising deliveries, improving labour productivity and maximising space utilisation.
Jason D Matos, corporate manager of logistics, Leminar Air Conditioning, said: “The second phase of technology upgrade is planned, which will add several more intelligent features like ageing stock identification, quantity recommendations for fast moving products and paperless picking. We are increasingly investing in latest technologies to streamline our operations and ensure speedy distribution.
Pramodh Idicheria, general manager, Leminar Air Conditioning Company, said: “The market is evolving quickly and companies that do not plan their strategy ahead are going to be irrelevant. By expanding our storage facility and distribution channels, and through new partnerships and acquisitions, we are confident of establishing a stronger presence over the regional HVAC industry."
As well as the central logistics centre in Ras Al Khor, Leminar has a 29,000ft2 in Mussafah in Abu Dhabi and five showrooms spread across the UAE.
