BMW is moving their parts distribution centre

BMW Group Malaysia officially breaks the ground to start construction for their latest facility.

A new BMW Group Parts Distribution Centre Malaysia will soon be opening at the Airport Free Industrial Zone at the Senai International Airport in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The BMW Group Malaysia along with their new partner Pan Asia Logistics held the ground breaking ceremony last week to officially start construction on the latest facility.
The plot spans a total of 25 acres of land in the Free Industrial Zone of the Senai International Airport. The BMW Group Parts Distribution Centre Malaysia will play the role of art logistics warehouse and parts distribution hub for the premium automaker supporting over 22 countries in the region.
BMW will be closing down the current Parts Distribution Centre that is located within the Free Trade Zone of the Port of Tanjung Pelepas to be replaced by the new centre after construction has ended. The new centre will provide up to 761,000 square feet of state-of-the-art logistics property warehouse space that is planned in two phases.
Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony, PAL Group’s Executive Chairman Mr. Christian Bischoff commented, “The construction of the New Parts Distribution Centre for the BMW Group in Senai will mark a major milestone in our relationship with BMW. We look very much forward to a successful project, a fruitful cooperation and to further strengthen our ties with this important customer. This long-term lease with BMW is an example of our commitment to serving the needs of our MNCs clients and helping them create supply-chain solutions as their businesses evolve in Asia.”
Mr. Alan Harris, Managing Director & CEO, BMW Group Malaysia, meanwhile, said, “Malaysia continues to be a strategic hub and a key growth market for the BMW Group in the South East Asia region. This is clearly demonstrated with the expansion of our headquarters, Regional Training Centre and Group Date Centre in Cyberjaya, our local assembly facilities at the BMW Group Assembly Plant in Kulim, Kedah as well as our established network of dealerships across the country.”
Harris added that the leading premium automaker has also consistently strengthened its investments in the country, providing skilled and professional work opportunities for Malaysians throughout the country as well as offering significant transfer of advanced technologies and processes to the local automotive industry.
BMW Group Malaysia is happy to welcome their new partnership with Pan Asia logistics as the supply chain provider for BMW regional distribution centre in Senai Airport Free Industrial Zone.
