DHL Supply Chain helps relocate LG sustainable warehouse

The new DHL-managed LG warehouse includes 198kWp solar panels on the roof to provide 100 per cent renewable energy

Logistics company DHL Supply Chain Australia has helped major partner LG Electronics move its warehouse in New South Wales to a new state-of-the-art and sustainable site.

Major electrical appliance company LG Electronics needed to upgrade to a more sustainable warehouse, with its 10-year relationship with DHL Supply Chain allowing the latter to come to the rescue.

LG’s NSW distribution centre has now been moved to a new sustainable warehouse in Erskine Park, with the new site working in conjunction with LG’s other DHL-managed warehouses across Australia.

The new site meets LG’s sustainability goals, being powered by 100 per cent renewable energy sourced from 198kWp solar panels on the roof, along with renewable sources for any additional electricity required by the site.

The warehouse also features polycarbonate roof panels to maximise daylight use as well as energy-efficient ventilation, a HVAC system and water efficient fittings.

DHL Supply Chain ANZ CEO Steve Thompsett says the latest warehouse for LG is a wonderful outcome resulting from a strong collaboration formed over 10 years and a thorough understanding of whitegoods logistics and the customer’s needs.

“LG is an incredible business partner and were very pleased that the relationship we’ve developed while managing LG’s domestic transport and warehousing. This has led us to distributing their stock from a warehouse that’s a better fit for purpose, while also helping them to manage sustainability requirements and costs,” Thompsett says.

“We’re working with an increasing number of customers who are relying on us to fulfill their supply chain sustainability objectives and we’re proud to establish zero operational CO2-emitting warehouses for them, tying in with DHL’s global target of net zero emissions by 2050.

“We see this positive development with LG as the step that takes our relationship into the future.”
LG Electronics Australia and NZ chief financial officer Seung Joo Lee says he’s proud of the results achieved from the pair’s collaboration on the sustainable warehouse.

“This new warehouse, born out of LG and DHL’s strong relationship, is a great example of what can be achieved through goodwill and collaboration,” Lee says.

“LG is constantly working to find ways to deliver more for its customers and this new warehouse is helping us to streamline our customer experience, especially in areas like e-commerce.

“In addition, this innovative site helps us to deliver on our sustainability goals, which includes carbon- neutrality and reduced waste, to create a better way of life for all.”
