Design trends in warehousing spaces

Modern technologies such as automation, robotics and supply chain management are increasing management efficiencies in warehousing.

“Drones and self-driving vehicles are used to support seamless operations,” adds Rajesh Jaggi, Managing Partner, Real Estate, Everstone Group. “Robots are used to manage and sort, leading to greater output.” Warehouses by Indospace with super-flat floors are structured such that their vast spaces are unhindered by walls or columns and allow for high stacking of goods and easy manoeuvring of forklifts for storage or pick and pack.

“Clients generally ask for a 12-m clear height for the warehouses at the eaves (below services),” shares Anshul Singhal, CEO, Embassy Industrial Parks. “With more automation, FM2 flooring requirements have increased. And sustainability in lighting has always been important because the percentage of energy attributed to it is quite high.”

Also, sustainability principles and flexibility of form or layout are increasingly being incorporated right from the master planning stage, says Sanjay Srivastava, Business Head, Mahindra World City, Jaipur & Director, ORIGINS, Ahmedabad. “The use of technology for planning and managing industrial park operations more efficiently— for example, smart lighting, security and utilities monitoring—is widespread today. MWCs incorporate smart solutions including LED street lighting; energy-efficient buildings; solar PV rooftops; STPs; rainwater harvesting; low-flow fixtures and fittings; e-rickshaws, waste management systems; xeriscaping; and an off-grid solar power plant, among others.

Global Rare Earth Supply Chains Diversify Away from China

In response to the rising global demand for rare earths critical for producing everything from electric vehicles to wind turbines, supply chains are undergoing a significant realignment away from China. Historically dominant in rare earth production, China's recent policies and geopolitical tensions have prompted Western nations and other stakeholders to seek alternative sources and bolster local capabilities. Rare earth processing involves two essential stages: initial extraction and subsequent refining into individual oxide compounds used to manufacture magnets essential in various industri..

Coal India, US Firm to Explore Argentine Lithium

State-run Coal India Ltd is collaborating with a US company to explore lithium blocks in Argentina, a critical step in securing supplies of the essential battery material, according to an Indian source with direct knowledge of the matter. This initiative is part of India's participation in the US-led Minerals Security Partnership (MSP), which New Delhi joined last year to ensure a steady supply of minerals necessary to meet its zero-carbon objectives. As part of the MSP, India was invited to engage in 20-25 critical minerals projects, with four already identified by the Indian government. Indi..

India's Coal Consumption Set to Surge Amid Hydroelectricity Shortfall

Amid a significant drop in hydroelectricity production caused by inadequate rainfall, India is gearing up to increase its coal consumption to satisfy rising power demands, according to S&P Global Commodity Insights. This shortfall in hydroelectric power is anticipated to perpetuate India's reliance on coal imports. During the fiscal year 2023-24, India's coal production approached the 1 billion metric ton milestone, reflecting the government's strategy to lessen dependency on imported coal. Nonetheless, the country has already imported approximately 85 million metric tons of thermal coal in 20..
