IHI and Nomura Real Estate Launch Large-Scale Logistics Facility Project! Plans to introduce sharing services such as storage using automated multi-story warehouses

IHI and Nomura Real Estate have begun development of a large-scale logistics facility, "Landport Yokohama Sugita (tentative name)," which will include an automated warehouse sharing service and other initiatives aimed at alleviating logistics labor shortages and contributing to further logistics efficiency. The automated warehouse sharing service is the first initiative of its kind in the development of logistics facilities by the two companies.

As symbolized by the significant increase in demand for e-commerce in response to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, consumers' lifestyles and purchasing styles are currently undergoing rapid change. Furthermore, changes in the business environment surrounding the logistics industry, such as the shortage of long-distance drivers due to restrictions on overtime work conditions for vehicle driving (to be enforced in 2024) and the shortage of labor due to the increase in deliveries to individual homes caused by demand for e-commerce, have made it necessary for future logistics facilities to not only provide cargo storage and delivery functions, but also to provide cargo handling, storage, delivery, and other operations more efficiently and labor-saving. In addition, they are required to ensure business continuity in the event of a disaster. (Head Office: Koto-ku, Tokyo; President: Shunji Kasa; hereinafter "ILM"), a comprehensive logistics equipment manufacturer, and Nomura Real Estate's expertise in the development and operation of Category Multi®-type logistics facilities and its deep knowledge of urban development in general.
