The centrepiece of Daikin Park Brisbane is the implementation of the Manhattan Warehouse Management System, providing a comprehensive logistics solution for efficient fulfillment and dispatch operations of finished goods and spare parts throughout Queensland. With a total size of 13,609 sqm, the site houses a Warehouse, Daikin Trade Centre, Training Academy, Showroom, and Queensland Sales Office, serving as a hub to cater to the diverse needs of its customers.
Demonstrating Daikin's commitment to sustainability, the facility has been designed targeting the highest ratings in NABERS, WELL, and Green Star certifications. The integration of an energy-efficient Heat Recovery VRV air conditioning system stands out as a prominent feature, showcasing Daikin's dedication to reducing environmental impact. Indoor environment quality was key for our staff comfort levels so we have doubled the minimum outside air quantity, minimised glare and added 380 indoor plants for improved air quality. The facility also includes electric vehicle charging stations, a 320-kW solar system, solar hot water systems, and rainwater harvesting tanks with a 40,000-litres capacity for water conservation.
With 4 inbound and 9 outbound docks, it handles 1.2 million units and 15,000 truckloads respectively each year. The facility will manage approximately 700,000 cubic meters of outbound freight annually and has prominent exposure to daily traffic flow of over 100,000 vehicles on the Gateway Motorway.
The facility has advanced racking and storage infrastructure, providing efficient operations with 9,780 pallet spaces, 40 bays of duct storage, and 4,000 small parts locations. The storage capacity is 23,000 cubic metres, and the steel racking system supports 150 tonnes.
The distinguishing features include advanced IT infrastructure, encompassing wireless scanning guns, reliable connectivity with multiple access points, and paperless operations.
