Daiwa Logistics Co Ltd announced that it will build its largest-scale physical distribution facility in Komaki City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan.

Daiwa Logistics (Osaka City) is a company affiliated with the Daiwa House group. The facility, "Komaki Nagaharu Project," consists of two buildings: "Komaki Nagaharu Physical Distribution Center A Building (tentative name)" and "Komaki Nagaharu Physical Distribution Center B Building (tentative name)." Its total floor area is larger than 37,000m2. The A Building and B Building started to be constructed July 1 and Oct 1, 2018, respectively.

On the roofs of the buildings, a total of about 3,400 solar panels (total output: 1,024kW) will be installed. Jinko Solar Japan KK's solar panel will be used for both the A Building and B Building. The PV inverters employed for them are products of Toshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corp (TMEIC) and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, respectively.

The FIT tariff for the solar power generation (PV) system has not been decided yet. As power-saving facilities, LED lamps will be introduced in the entire physical distribution facility.

The physical distribution facility is located about 4.5km from the "Komaki Interchange" and "Kasugai Interchange" of the Tomei Expressway. Also, it is near "Komaki JCT," an important point for traffic (where the Tomei Expressway, Meishin Expressway and Chuo Expressway intersect), enabling to easily access the Chukyo, Kanto and Kansai areas of Japan.
