Agility opens 66,000 sq m hub in Shanghai

Agility has opened a 66,000 sq m logistics hub in Shanghai for Borouge. It will be used to receive and distribute up to 600,000 tonnes of polyolefins annually from Borouge’s plant in Abu Dhabi. Agility Abu Dhabi designed, constructed and owns the facility and will manage operations and distribution to the Asian market more than ten years.

The Shanghai Logistics Hub will receive polymer resins in bulk containers directly from the Borouge Middle East gateway situated at Ruwais in Abu Dhabi. These polymers are used in a wide range of applications including pipe systems, wires and cables, automotive components and advanced packaging as well as household white goods.

Next to the logistics hub is a 30,000 sq m compound manufacturing unit which produces 50,000 tonnes of polymer compounds each year.
