i2C were excited to attend the Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony led by Elder Uncle Ringo Terrick of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people – the traditional owners and custodians of Country in this area and the official turning of first sod. This marked the commencement of the construction of SYNNEX’s head office and distribution centre in Oakleigh South.
The SYNNEX relocation and innovation project is the regional update of the SYNNEX global supply chain. Once completed this project will incorporate a head office over three levels and 3,000m2. The internal Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) is located within a 32m high warehouse with a gross floor footprint of 4,300m2. This ASRS is currently designed for the storage and retrieval of full pallets of goods that are received from either the on-grade loading dock or recess tail dock. The storage unit is fed by an intricate network of both receiving and dispatch conveyors over three floors to aid in the efficient transport of both received and purchased goods to and from the warehouse. The warehouse unit is over three floors of both racked and unracked process areas for a total of 24,500m2 of assignable space.
