TIGERS CONTINUES GLOBAL GROWTH WITH NEW MEGA HUB FACILITY IN ROTTERDAM


The new mega hub facility is being built to accommodate increasing customer demand and will become Tigers’ biggest single operation in Europe

Hong Kong, Tuesday 22nd October 2019 – Tigers is building a new mega hub facility in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, as global customer demand and the e-commerce sector continue to grow.

The multi-million-Euro mega hub is currently under construction and is scheduled to be officially opened in April 2020, providing another flagship location for Tigers in Europe.

“Rotterdam is the biggest port in Europe and a key gateway to the continent for the supply chain, which is why Tigers has been based there for the past 20 years,” said Shahar Ayash, Managing Director – UK and Europe, Tigers.

“The mega hub will be an advanced omnichannel fulfilment centre and Tigers’ biggest single operation in Europe, which is being built with longevity and sustainability in mind.

“E-commerce has also been a huge factor in this development with 70 per cent of orders processed in Rotterdam related to the e-commerce sector, which is set for even further future growth.”

The new mega hub will replace Tigers’ existing Rotterdam facility and will be more than 550,000 sqf, have 60,000 pallet positions, and 550,000 bin locations.

The hub is also being built with solar panels on the roof to create a sustainable structure and will be equipped with Tigers’ Cloud-based SmartHub:Connect technology.

“The new facility will be just 10km from the Port of Rotterdam with close proximity to major road and rail networks, making it strategically located for both first and final mile,” said Ryan Balic, Regional Director Sales, Europe, Tigers.

“The mega hub will allow our customers to accommodate organic growth and benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, including enhanced security features, multiple storage and picking processes, dedicated B2C returns and VAS processing areas, and an increased number of conveyor scan-pack stations.”

The Rotterdam mega hub is part of an ongoing global expansion plan for Hong Kong-headquartered Tigers, and the facility is being constructed by real estate developer DHG.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
