Automobili Lamborghini has officially opened the doors of its new logistics centre at its Sant’Agata Bolognese facility. The centre will handle storage and distribution for all the manufacturer’s main markets and will play an important role in the sustained development of the company’s infrastructure.
The new centre was opened by Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, and Jean-Fleury Garel, CEO of Gazeley, one of Europe’s largest logistics property companies responsible for managing the project.
The new Logistics centre, with a surface of 11.000 square meters, is situated within the business zone and replaces the existing centre located in Anzola Emilia, about 20 kilometres away.
Characteristics of the new facility
The new facility, which stands 10 meters high with space for about 14,052 pallets, will be used both as a warehouse for car production and components and spare parts, as well as for Lamborghini’s merchandise range. Thanks to the height of the building and to innovative warehousing structures, storage capacity has been increased twofold, ensuring the accommodation of future business growth.
State of the art logistics
Automobili Lamborghini has developed its logistics activities by investing in both infrastructure and technology to ensure competitiveness, with a particular emphasis on optimizing the efficiency of its commercial organization, in line with the company’s positive performance of recent years. Access to a centre which features the very latest in logistics and storage techniques, thanks to its partner Jungheinrich, will improve internal processes. In parallel, material preparation and processing times have been reduced by 50% thanks to the partnership with Schnellecke Italia.
Operations at the centre are fully automated. Instant data transmission ensures the functionality of logistics integration processes while ensuring constant control of data flow, which reflect the manufacturer’s high standards, procedural policies and service objectives. The new logistics centre is also characterized by a comfortable working environment, while controls and other features required to facilitate operations are simple and streamlined.
