True to its purpose of building lasting relationships with its locators, AyalaLand Logistics Holdings Corp. (ALLHC) opened its doors to Newbie Station Logistic Inc. as they establish themselves at ALLHC’s ALogis Calamba site in Laguna. This latest development builds upon Newbie’s initial lease for their first warehouse facility in the Philippines signed two years ago.
In 2021, Newbie Logistic inked a deal with ALLHC for their first business site in the country to mark Newbie’s entry into the Philippine market. The logistics company, serving top e-commerce industries, leased 13,000 sqm of warehouse leasable area at the ALogis Biñan 4 site of ready-built facilities at Laguna Technopark, a premier industrial estate developed by ALLHC. This strategic move allowed Newbie to establish its presence in the country’s growing logistics sector.
Fast forward to the present, ALLHC and Newbie Logistic forges a new deal for the latter’s operations expansion. Newbie Logistic is set to become an anchor lessee at ALogis Calamba in Laguna, where they will occupy an impressive 33,400 sqm of gross leasable space. Additionally, they will expand their presence in Biñan, Laguna, by leasing an additional 11,600 sqm at the ALogis Biñan 4 facility.
This expansion marks a significant milestone as it comes less than two years after Newbie Logistic’s initial tenancy with ALLHC in ALogis Biñan 4. The turnover of the additional Biñan space took place in May 2023, while the full turnover of the Calamba site occurred just this September 2023. This development is expected to create employment opportunities for approximately 1,300 workers across the two sites, underscoring ALLHC’s dedication to supporting jobs generation for nearby localities.
Newbie Logistic Marketing Director Jingwu Yan mused “ALLHC shares our unwavering commitment to excellence, efficiency, and growth. Their dedication to providing state-of-the-art infrastructure, strategically located facilities, and a team that is passionately invested in our success made them the perfect choice for us. ALLHC provides us with the robust foundation we need to expand our footprint and continue to redefine international cross-border fulfillment.”
ALLHC Chief Operating Officer Patrick C. Avila shared “We are thankful to Newbie Logistic for continuing to trust ALogis for their warehouse requirements for their growing operations here in the Philippines. Their expansion not only strengthens their presence, but also creates additional job opportunities for local residents – a goal we proudly share with our locators across all our developments. As we welcome Newbie Logistic in our ALogis Calamba facility, we wish them continued success.”
With this development, ALLHC solidifies its position as the preferred partner in logistics real estate solutions. Presently, the company oversees a portfolio of nine properties across five key locations in Luzon, including Biñan, Naic, Calamba, Porac, and Santo Tomas, with expansion ongoing at ALogis Naic 2, situated within Cavite Technopark, for 11,000 sqm more of leasable warehouse space.
In addition to its physical expansions, ALLHC has made a significant move in 2023 by venturing into the build-to-suit facilities space. This initiative is aimed at offering businesses bespoke facilities, uniquely designed to meet their specific requirements.
