APG MOVES IN

Auto Parts Group Sydney has officially moved into its ultra-modern new facility

Auto Parts Group (APG) has now completed the move into its new Smithfield warehouse facility.
The facility has a 100 percent capacity increase over the previous location and is designed for 24,000sqm of storage.
APG says it houses a modern warehouse design encapsulating everything from racking positioning and combining the likes of shelving and hanging locations.
The latest in Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) are the brains driving efficiency in the parts receival, storage, pick and dispatch life cycle.
APG’s WMS also automates the parts locating process, optimising which parts are a best fit for each physical bay size and location.
Parts to person pick strategies have been optimised into the design, with conveyors reducing the need for manual handling of parts.
APG says even the external building design combines on grade and recessed roller doors, further improving the goods receival and dispatch processes.
Further, the facility’s Green Star Approval is said to be measurable action of APG working towards a near zero carbon footprint.
“This new Sydney facility reaffirms our long-term commitment and service level to the region’s customers, through increased product capacity, faster supply, and reduced parts handling in the supply process,” APG National Sales and Marketing Manager, Scott Glover, said.
“That time saved equals cycle time benefit to you and money in your back pocket now and into the future. We’d like to extend a thank you to all clients for making this transition possible.”

APG has put together a ‘drone tour’ of the new facility, which can be viewed at www.autopartsgroup.com.au/weve-moved-in and also on its Facebook, YouTube or Instagram pages.
