    DB SCHENKER brings global advantages to first custom fit-out 3PL spare parts warehouse for major electronics company

    A major electronics giant has entrusted DB SCHENKER, a leading global logistics provider with whom they've maintained a partnership for more than 20 years, to manage the third-party logistics (3PL) for their newly customised spare parts warehouse in NSW.

    The new 12,800 square metre warehouse features four recessed docks and three on-grade docks, and has the capacity to handle 30,000 active SKUs. The site was built with on-site security, inventory management, value added services, and sustainability measures in place.

    Derrick Martins, Director of Contract Logistics for DB SCHENKER Australia and New Zealand, says that this is a particularly exciting project, because it is this customer’s first custom fit-out site in the region, and it can draw upon DB SCHENKER’s 3PL efficiencies and response times proven globally.

    DB SCHENKER has 150 years of global logistics experience and 60 years in Australia, including extensive experience in contract logistics and 3PL warehouses, with more than 20 major sites across Australia and New Zealand and over 260,000 square metres of storage capacity.

    “Spare parts management creates a number of complexities for warehousing and logistics, and it is often our job to optimise processes within existing fit-outs or setups. Having a facility where DB SCHENKER was responsible for the fit-out means we could design the entire warehouse in the most efficient way right from the outset,” says Martins.

    “Our site Operations Manager has more than 20 years of experience in the industry, and places a strong focus on standard operation procedure, safety, and sustainability, so these were built into the new warehouse. The warehouse was designed to be a safe, harmonious, and ergonomic workplace for everyone on site,” he said.

    Security focus

    DB SCHENKER worked with the customer to build this warehouse with security measures in place, including:


    DB SCHENKER and the major electronics company both placed a high importance on sustainability, so the new warehouse was built with energy-efficient LED lighting, a focus on recycling, and a custom box builder to minimise waste.

    Long-term partnership

    DB SCHENKER has worked with this electronics company for the past 20 years, with a scope that has included customs clearance, port to warehouse delivery, product and spare parts warehousing, domestic outbound distribution, and reverse logistics management.

    “Long-term partnerships like this are a testament to the hard work, flexibility, and dedication of people from both companies. We are grateful for 20 years of working towards shared goals, and overcoming challenges together,” said Martins.
