Krasnodar, 27 March – Yug Times. On March 20, Krasnodar played host to the conference entitled “Logistics of the future: a reset” targeted at professional logistics worklers.
In his opening speech, Aleksandr Perfilyev, Director of ILM’s Department for Warehousing and Industrial Realty and Managing Director of Skladium Company, described the market of warehouses in Krasnodar.
He stated that the yearly ‘all inclusive’ rental fee for class A premises is 3,800 roubles per square metre; for class B premises - 3,500 roubles; for classes C and D - 3,100 roubles. The average share of vacant warehousing premises does not exceed 2.6%. For reference, he announced average rental fees for class A warehouses in other Russian regions: Yekaterinburg and Moscow - 3,800 roubles; Rostov-on-Don and Novosibirsk - 3.700 roubles; St. Petersburg - 3,650 roubles; Voronezh and Nizhny Novgorod - 3,200 roubles. Sergei Fedorov, Comitas Sales Director, announced the prospects for a comparatively new kind of storage facilities: self-supporting warehouses. These are premises, where the shelves themselves serve as a load-bearing element of the construction.
“As soon as a warehouse has been built, its operators are facing the task to use its volumes as much as possible,” Fedorov said. “This is why, modern warehouses are in fact a single massif of containers or goods piled on a pallet (up to 14 pallets to the deep) within a sophisticated system of shelving facilities.”
He explained that every pallet automatically gets its own barcode address and own niche in the computer database. All movements occur with the help of radio or satellite shuttles along the rails. The system can remove several pallets to reach the needed one, and then it puts them back to their places. This is how the work of the contemporary warehouse looks like Rubik cubing.
