Leminar extends logistics facility


DUBAI: Leading Middle East distributor Leminar Air Conditioning Company has officially opened its newly-expanded central distribution centre in Dubai, UAE.

The warehouse in the Ras Al Khor Industrial Area spreads over an area of 168,000ft² making it one of the largest facilities of its kind in the country for the HVAC market.

With a capacity of 7,531 pallet slots, the facility can accommodate a stock inventory worth up to AED100m (€24m). It is controlled by an Oracle-based warehouse management system, which allows Leminar to plan, track and monitor deliveries in an efficient manner. The WMS currently helps in prioritising deliveries, improves labour productivity and maximises space utilisation.

Further upgrades are planned. Jason D Matos, corporate manager of logistics, 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.”

In addition to the Central Logistics Centre in Ras Al Khor, Leminar has a 29,000ft² facility in Mussafah in the capital city of Abu Dhabi and five showrooms spread across the UAE.

Established in Dubai in 1991, Leminar is a member of the Al Shirawi Group with offices in UAE, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait.
