Sri Lanka’s EFL 3PL sets up Fulfillment Centre to complement its logistics and digital supply chain management solutions
Sri Lanka’s EFL 3PL, which is a member of the leading conglomerate Expolanka PLC, has reportedly established a new, state-of-the-art Fulfillment Centre in Kandana recently to complement its award-winning third-party logistics and digital supply chain management solutions.
According to local media reports, the Fulfillment Centre is conveniently located dissecting the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) and the Port of Colombo to facilitate import and export operations.
Being a fully BOI (Sri Lanka’s Board of Investment) approved facility, the Fulfillment Center grants BOI companies with convenience and seamless utilization of its facilities and EFL 3PL is reputed for being the benchmark in the country with a focus on using technology and compliance to deliver agility, scalability and accuracy, media reports state.
Sprawling across 85,000 square feet or 6,500 cubic meters, reinforced by HighJump, the tier one Warehouse Management System (WMS), the Fulfillment Center is the right sized facility with ample allowance for expansion, whilst offering superior connectivity to arterial road and highway networks.
Catering to the needs of reputed local and global clientele, this modern facility is highly secure, complying with the highest standards.
Hanif Yusoof, Founder/President of EFL and Group CEO of Expolanka Holdings PLC has been quoted as saying in the local media, “EFL having owned and managed large scale 3PL facilities within our global network, we have come to realize that the increasing demand is for the right sized facility at the right location, in order to cater to agility and to be more responsive. Therefore, the launch of the new Fulfillment Center in Kandana is yet another bold step to entrench EFL 3PL’s identity as a holistic supply chain solutions provider.”
“Underpinned by advanced tech platforms, global compliance and speed in the world of business today, we believe this new facility will provide a competitive edge to our clients for greater agility and efficiency, thus becoming the preferred and best 3PL in the eyes of our clients,” Sammy Akbar, Director, EFL 3PL and Freeport has said.
The continuous growth in Sri Lanka’s ports, shipping and aviation sectors have resulted in the expansion of business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka’s logistics industry. Sri Lankan authorities are engaged in developing Sri Lanka as a maritime hub in the Indian Ocean. All this has resulted in the expansion of business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka’s logistics industry. Sri Lanka’s geographical positioning in the Indian Ocean, the ease of doing business environment in the country and the many trade agreements as well as trade concessions enjoyed by the country have made it an attractive business destination in the South Asian region. Foreign businesses/investors could therefore explore business opportunities in Sri Lanka’s logistics industry.
