Philip Pearce, Managing Director Greater China for Goodman, said, “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Decathlon and to be their logistics solutions partner of choice as they continue to expand their business in mainland China. The new leases with Decathlon reflect Goodman’s proactive, ongoing engagement with our customers, through design and development of quality built-to-suit logistics facilities.
Goodman Hannan Logistics Park
is located in Hannan District, Wuhan city, which borders six other provinces and cities in Central and Western China. It has excellent accessibility to the expressway network, which connects it to surrounding cities, making it a key logistical junction in the Central China region. The project will be developed in two phases, with construction expected to be completed in December 2015 and June 2016 respectively. On completion, the estate will offer approximately 170,000 sqm of prime logistics space, with an estimated end value of RMB560 million.
The built-to-suit facility for Decathlon in Goodman Hannan Logistics Park
comprises four single-storey warehouses. It will be used as Decathlon’s main distribution centre in China, with future plans to establish it as a major hub for its goods being transported between Europe and Asia.
Goodman Hunnan Logistics Centre
is strategically located in Shenyang Hunnan E-Commerce Industrial Park. In close proximity to Shenyang downtown and Shenyang Airport, it has excellent connectivity to the north-eastern region of China via an extensive expressway network. The built-to-suit project for Decathlon will be developed in two phases and is expected to be completed in March 2017. When completed, the facility will comprise four single-storey warehouses, with approximately 72,000 sqm of prime logistics space and an estimated end value of RMB300 million. Decathlon will use the facility as its major distribution centre in North-east China.
Bruno Thellier, Chief Technical Officer of Decathlon said, “As our business continues to grow across China, we are conscious of securing efficient warehousing facilities to scale up our distribution capability. We are pleased to have a reliable partner like Goodman to provide us with quality and innovative warehousing solutions to support our growth.”
Mr Pearce added, “Goodman’s outlook on the China market is positive. As demand for prime logistics space continues to be robust, it is providing us with opportunities to expand our footprint across the mainland into selected second tier cities. We fully intend to invest further in the market for the long-term.”
