Take-A-Lot.com Expands Distribution Centre
Category New Developments
JT Ross Property Group's: Plumbago Business Park has become the premier logistics destination in Johannesburg, owing primarily to it's excellent location on the R21, just 6 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport.
It's little wonder, one of South Africa's leading e-commerce retailers set up their distribution centre within Plumbago Business Park several years ago.
A significant consideration at the time, was for property owner and developer, JT Ross Property Group, to strategically develop the park in a way that would accommodate future growth of the several international distribution companies that set up their regional operations there.
Take-A-Lot.com is the most recent operator at the park (following Xylem, DHL, Gavic and Crusader Logistics) to benefit from JT Ross's unique propensity to respond to tenant growth, with the current 30 000 square meter Take-A-Lot.com facility being extended by a further 13 500 square meters.
Owing to it's prime location, contemporary design and excellent freeway visibility from either side of the R21, the original Plumbago Business Park has developed over the years into a 'four parks in one' logistics hub. The driving factors have always been to accommodate corporate distribution centres within a secure estate offering access control, wide roads, large yards for truck circulation and 24 hour monitoring.
The professional team of architects, engineers, consultants and subcontractors have worked on several projects within JT Ross Property Group's: Plumbago Business Park, enhancing the design, development and delivery of quality projects in record timelines without interruption from normal construction activity.
"Despite tight deadlines, we are set to deliver the additional space to Take-A-Lot.com by mid 2019, with minimum disruption to ongoing operations at the park", said Graeme Green, Executive Director at JT Ross Property Group.
Take-A-Lot.com's A-Grade warehouse within JT Ross Property Group's: Plumbago Business Park forms a crucial component of their ability to acquire and store products which are distributed throughout South Africa within exceptional time frames.
Late last year, superbalist.com and Spree merged, making the popular e-commerce retailer the largest in South Africa with over 2000 employees. The delivery team has 49 branches and over 900 drivers serving the South African market.
Aside from further opportunities reserved for Take-A-Lot.com's operation in Johannesburg, the online retailer will also be taking up warehouse facilities in Durban, within the JT Ross Property Group portfolio.
