Bolloré Logistics Singapore announces plans for S$10m logistics automation facility

Bolloré Transport & Logistics and supply chain services company Czarnikow are collaborating to support Bolloré’s sustainable development in East Africa through the VIVE Sustainable Supply Programme.

Bolloré Logistics Singapore has announced plans for its first logistics automation facility with luxury products group LVMH.

Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the 20,000 sq m automation facility will be built with an investment of S$10m between Bolloré Logistics and LVMH, as part of a long-term partnership to drive productivity and increase space efficiency. The facility will feature a 12,000 tote multi-shuttle system from Dematic which is intended to improve throughput by up to 10 times more than conventional warehousing methods. The combination of multi-shuttle system and picking technology is thought to be the first of its kind to be deployed in Singapore and the region. 

The facility is expected to allow Bolloré Logistics to meet the challenges arising from the emergence of e-commerce and increase of future distribution channels globally.

With Singapore as the company’s regional hub, the facility’s scalable system aims to create a future-ready infrastructure to support the demands of the Asia Pacific region. The plan is also in line with the government’s direction towards a future-ready Singapore and is supported by EDB. This project is slated to be complete in January 2018.
