Lifestyle will add a new bedroom mixing warehouse in Malaysia.
Located in Muar, which is considered to be the furniture capital of Malaysia, the 100,000-square-foot space has a 200-container capacity and will begin shipping in the fall of this year.
“As one of the major bedroom suppliers to the U.S. market, we feel it is time to expand our container programs to different customers that we have never been able to reach before,” said Derrick Ng, Lifestyle president. “Additionally, we see the opportunity with freight rates decreasing because of the decline in market demand, allowing us to provide a new platform to help our customers recover from post-pandemic damages.”
Ng told Furniture Today that new program will make shipping single-bedroom containers easier.
“The new bedroom mixing program will reduce the complications of single-bedroom containers, allowing customers to mix up to 13 different bedroom styles within a single container with no restrictions,” he said. “Hopefully, this program will help alleviate the overstock problem of our customers’ warehouses.”
