The Jacky's Group of Companies has moved into a new headquarters in the Jebel Ali free zone, which has resulted in a huge increase in its warehousing space. The electronics retail and wholesale company made the move to better support its international customer base, which now extends across 130 countries. “The Jebel Ali Free Zone is extremely conducive for trade and this location allows Jacky's to position itself alongside other competitive players in the market,” commented Manohar Panjabi, executive director, Jacky's Gulf. “Over the past 35 years Jacky's has grown to become a major retailer, wholesaler, exporter and distributor of some of the world’s top brands,” he continued. “One of the main reasons that we have been able to grow as we have is because of our ability to identify and respond to market needs — regionally and globally,” Panjabi added. The 10,000 m2 headquarters will house Jacky’s global offices, while its current head office near Dubai airport will become its regional office. The new facility will also house a logistics center that is 50% larger than the company’s previous warehouse in Jebel Ali. The new facility includes a temperature regulated storage area to accommodate products that need to be stored at specific temperatures. Other new features include individual pallet picking, improved racking systems that allow for deep and extra push back storage capacity and an enhanced mechanical operation for faster picking, dispatching, receiving and storage of products. Moreover, the three loading and unloading bays, improved warehouse management and overall operation, will enhance logistical efficiency by reducing time and costs.
