Lödige Industries has been selected to provide an automated handling system for the Cainiao Smart Gateway at Hong Kong International Airport.

The gateway will be the third largest logistics centre in Hong Kong when it opens later this year and it will provide warehousing and distribution services under the Alibaba electronic World Trade Platform (eWTP).

The platform was set up to lower trade barriers and provide greater access through global trade facilitation for businesses and consumers.

It is due to open in Q3 this year and Lödige will provide Cainiao with an air cargo handling system for the receipt, delivery, storage, retrieval, transhipment and sorting of air cargo.

Nicholas Tripptree, Managing Director of Lödige Industries in Asia Pacific, says, “The pandemic has enhanced dynamism in the e-commerce landscape across countries and long-standing consumer behaviours have been forever changed. The logistics centres and warehouses are becoming engines of the supply chain. Therefore, we understand the unique pressures e-commerce operations face and we are very pleased that we can support in achieving its goals with automation solutions from Lödige Industries to ensure processes are streamlined while productivity and efficiency remain high.”
