Toll opens $167m logistics hub in Singapore

Toll Group has opened a new SGD228m ($166.8m) logistics hub in Singapore close to the upcoming Tuas Port.

The new Toll City facility spanning over 1m sq ft was officially opened on Wednesday and is located less than 3km from the 65m teu Tuas megaport currently under construction in the far west of Singapore. It also has good road links to Malaysia and the Port of Tanjung Pelepas.

The facility is designed to serve the local and regional markets for sectors such as retail, fast moving consumer goods (FCMG), and healthcare. It is designed to accomodate new technologies such as driverless trucks and 3D printing.

“Toll City in Singapore is a new growth chapter for Toll in Asia. Toll’s focus on technology developments will revolutionize the way people work, as we create resilient supply chain solutions that deliver smarter, faster and better outcomes for our clients,” said Vincent Phang, executive vice president of Toll Global Logistics Singapore.

“With the SiTadeL Control Tower in Toll City, we have been addressing Singapore’s urban logistics challenges with real-time visibility and monitoring of our moving assets. As a result, we offer an integrated supply chain management process that’s prepared for surge periods, and potential supply chain disruptions caused by human or natural disasters.”
