A drastic increase in demand for Grade A warehousing space can be attributed to the burgeoning cost of storage per square feet, implementation of stringent health and safety regulations, need for high-operational efficiency, and better provisions of infrastructure and amenities for the people working in warehouses. In Hyderabad, ALIPPL’s six lakh square feet facility is ideally placed to meet Grade A requirements of customers from diverse industries.
In Hyderabad, the Yelumal industrial area, where Allcargo Logistics and Industrial Parks Private Limited’s (ALIPPL) unit is located, a raft of well-known companies including SAIL, Concor, Asian Paints and Hindware Industries, house their logistics and warehousing units. ALIPPL Hyderabad is also 10 km from the TSIIC Patancheru Zone industrial area where around 3820 acres of development house top corporates like Aurobindo Pharma, Piramal, Paragon Polymer, Fenner and Pennar Building.
The Hyderabad facility is in a key warehousing hub—many operators such as Dmart , Amazon, Flipkart, Grofers, Milk Basket, Asian Paints operate within 10-15 km radius from the site—due to proximity to the western and south-western consumption centres of Hitech City, Gachibowli, Outer Ring Road and Miyapur, Kukatpally, which are within an hour’s drive away. It is located near National Highway-9 which connects Hyderabad to Mumbai.
Spread across 30 acres with over six lakh square feet under development, ALIPPL has built the biggest warehousing facility in the Hyderabad market. Strategically located on the city’s western periphery, with over 200 large and medium scale industries in its vicinity, the site is grabbing all the headlines in the Hyderabad warehousing market.
Immense need for Grade A spaces
Exploding demand from the e-commerce industry, the enactment of a slew of government policies such as the Goods and Services Tax (GST), development of industrial corridors, and assigning infrastructure status to the logistics sector have catalysed investments into Grade A warehousing facilities. ALIPPL has completed 4,50,000 sq. ft. construction and delivered it to various clients in e-commerce, logistics and retail, even as the 1,50,000 sq. ft. is being rapidly completed.
ALIPPL’s Hyderabad facility has been built to exacting Grade A standards and rides on rapidly growing demand for this top-tier warehousing space. The drastic increase in demand can be attributed to the burgeoning cost of storage per square feet, implementation of stringent health and safety regulations, the need for high-operational efficiency, and better provision of infrastructure and amenities for the people working in warehouses.
Success lies in the location
The success of Grade A warehousing is based on zeroing in on an ideal location. With the emergence of Mumbai Highway as a significant radial road in the Outer Ring Road (ORR) project, Patancheru has evolved as an industrial area with major general engineering and fabrication, medical device park, textile park, export oriented production, chemical industries, cargo type and general industries.
ALIPPL’s Hyderabad unit is very well located: Hitech City and Gachibowli, which is 19 km away, is a prominent IT and residential hub, while Nagulpalli railway station and Patancheru bus stand are close by. E-commerce and retail companies prefer this location due to ease of delivery to these consumption centres, which are within an hour’s drive away.
Leveraging a consumer-led market
Hyderabad is one of the biggest consumer-led consumption markets in south India. The industrial and warehousing sector is expected to grow in Hyderabad due to various factors including the anticipated increase in global demand, growth in organised retail and increasing manufacturing activities and expansion of e-commerce.
ALIPPL Hyderabad doesn’t stand out for its location and swift connectivity alone. The facility also offers top Grade A space to clients. ALIPPL clinched one of the biggest deals last year to provide space to Flipkart and Decathlon, with Allcargo Logistics’ 25-year legacy in the business helping it seal the deal.
It isn’t just top-tier warehousing space on offer. This space is constructed as per the tenant’s Health Safety and Environment (HSE) standards. Leveraging in-depth expertise in contract warehousing, third-party logistics, container freight business, and equipment rentals, ALIPPL is perfectly equipped to build customised Grade-A warehouses for different industrial requirements.
“ALIPPL is a market leader in Hyderabad and we believe our facility is ideally built and located for companies seeking to rapidly scale up their Grade A warehousing requirements,” says Mr. Jatin Chokshi, Chief Investment Officer, Allcargo Logistics. “We are capable of rapidly building facilities to suit the specific needs of a wide range of industries, while sticking to both international health and safety certifications and budgets,” he continues.
The facility: sustainable and strong
What makes ALIPPL stand apart? Grade A construction quality with state-of-the-art amenities, world class infrastructure, environment-friendly technology and fully compliant building with all approvals in place for warehousing operations. On the ground, this means RCC Roads/Black Topping Roads as per the Traffic Analysis for easy maneuvering of the 40 feet trucks across the park, storm water drains incorporating 50-year rainfall data, high compound walls to avoid pilferage and ample parking as per the master plan.
In addition, the facility has a security room and first aid centre, drivers’ rest area, green belt along the perimeter with necessary trees, rainwater harvesting, provision for space for waste handling and recycling of the STP treated water for the landscaping. External lighting with 100% DG Backup for the external lighting and for common services makes sure the facility is well-lit and safe.
At a time when customers have a sharp focus on the environment and sustainability, ALIPPL’s logistics parks are designed to use minimum electricity (4-5 skylight in the building to have proper sunlight during day time), proper utilisation of rain-water by having rain water harvesting systems and a keen intent to install solar panels on roof-tops in the future. The main focus inside the park is to efficiently use energy, water, and other resources, while protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity as well as reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation.
Companies looking for a large Grade A space in the Hyderabad market will find a strong fit with ALIPPL’s facility and capabilities. Built with 12-metre clear height buildings, wide column spacing and standing seam buildings, this unit offers top-of-the-line facilities including fire-fighting systems as per NBC/ FM norms, sewage plant with treated water for flushing and landscaping, mechanised loading capabilities using dock-levelers, conveyors, stackers etc., wide roads for 40-feet containers, ventilation systems with six air exchanges, and much more.
Certified state-of-the-art spaces
ALIPPL’s pre-engineered building follows the MBMA and IS design code, NBC norms for an STP design, a fire-fighting system, domestic water usage and toilets constructed inside the park and FM global norms for the flooring work and fire-system.
As more companies graduate to Grade-A warehouses, ALIPPL has ensured this facility makes the grade. For example, the flooring is super-flat and FM-2 compliant, over 50 years of rainfall data was considered while designing the storm-water drains, environment sustainability measures including rainwater harvesting and wastewater handling measures are operational. In addition, a robust electrical backbone and safety measures make this a much sought-after warehousing destination.
Already, corporates are looking to rush in – the facility has been leased out to Flipkart, Evo Electric and Star 5. If you’re looking for industry-leading Grade A warehousing space in Hyderabad, don’t look beyond ALIPPL Hyderabad.
