Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 2010/06/10 - iHub vision is to build the ultimate flexible, customizable warehouse solution for each industry. In order to achieve this, they develop leading edge customised warehouse services through the application of innovative business models - iHubSolutions.com.
iHub Solutions (HK) Ltd was one of the newer establishments. It carries the same specialities as other ihubs: specialises in the storage and handling of cargo in various industries like furniture (office, home, kitchen and outdoor furniture), telecommunications networks, building technology, medical, waterworks, fashion and lifestyle, semi-conductor, financial and educational Institutions, etc.
Ihub solutions offer a comprehensive range of warehousing and storage management services that harnesses the latest information technology, supply chain optimisation models and decision support tools to deliver innovative logistics solutions for today's global businesses. We believe that significant costs savings can be achieved through innovative business processes, efficient and lean supply chain rather than to focus on unit service rates.

The warehouse is 100% racked up and can provide both dry and air-conditioned storage. Each point is secured with infra-red CCTVs, burglar alarms and motion detectors. The warehouse ceiling is fitted with fire-sprinkler system.
Ihub solutions (ihubsolutions.com) recently implemented a full business Continuity Plan across all the locations. The business continuity plan covers both: Business Contingency and Business Recovery.
Ihub Logistics Execution System (iLex) is set up in a high availability environment with multiple redundant power supplies and hard disks. The server in operation is backed up by copy in hot-standby to take over the server in case of a failure. iLex is configured for continued operation in the unlikely event that there is a failure on the power supple or hard disks.
The availability of iLex is further safeguarded by the use of “hot site” backup systems. In the (unlikely) case that iLex servers should fail, it is backed up by an equivalent set up in a high availability environment at a different iHub location. Either of our “hot site” facilities will provide same day recovery. Using DoubleTake® Replication technology, data in the iLex servers are continuously replicated to the backup servers, ensuring up to the minute data concurrency. In the event of a server failure, system access can be restored within minutes.
Staffs are sent for logistics training with the Logistics Association. Warehouse equipment operators have the necessary forklift licences to operate.
ihub operates electrical equipment to minimize dust and noise in the warehouse. We use electric vacuum cleaners to keep the floor clean at all times. All equipment (e.g. air conditioners, lift trucks, etc) are given preventive maintenance at regular intervals to reduce electricity consumption and ensure cleanliness and hygienic conditions are maintained. ihub also deploys energy saving lightings in the warehouse to reduce electricity consumption.
