Italian premium carmaker Lamborghini has opened a new logistics centre at its Sant’Agata Bolognese facility. The 1,000m2 warehouse will be used for the storage of components, spare parts and merchandise for its main markets, with space for over 14,000 pallets. The facility replaces an existing one in Anzola Emilia 20km away and doubles the storage capacity available to the company.
The facility was officially opened by Automobili Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann and Jean-Fluery Garel, CEO of Gazeley, the logistics firm responsible for managing the project.
The carmaker is receiving logistics support from LSPs Jungheinrich and Schnellecke Italia. The latter is expected to reduce preparation and processing times by 50 per cent when compared with the former centre, says the company.
Lamborghini posted a record profit of $54.8m for the first half of this year and is opening eight new dealerships around the world.
