Berlin/Singapore - 07 February 2013 - DB Schenker Logistics will build a new integrated logistics center in Singapore. The facility, located at the Tampines LogisPark, close to Changi International Airport, will be a shared warehouse, for customers from various industries, such as Healthcare, Electronics, and Automotive. The 41 million Euros facility will have a gross floor area of approximately 54,520 square meters spread across three floors.

"This new facility represents our largest investment in the region to date and acknowledges the continued attractiveness of Singapore as a location to conduct logistics operations. This facility is a key element of our Shared Logistics Center Strategy that will see many new sites developed across the Asia Pacific Region in the coming years," says Darren Wedding, Senior Vice President - Contract Logistics/SCM, Region Asia Pacific, DB Schenker. 

Earmarked to be awarded Green Mark Gold Plus, the new DB Schenker center will feature a composite wall panel as part of the building perimeter, providing highly effective thermal insulation. A rainwater management system will contribute to enhanced water efficiency for landscape irrigation, while an efficient air-conditioning system will serve to minimize energy consumption and improve air flow distribution within the premises. These are some components of an integrated building management system designed to create a green and sustainable environment. 

DB Schenker is one of the leading providers of contract logistics and supply chain management solutions in Singapore, with a current warehousing space capacity of more than 212,000 square meters. The new facility is expected to be completed in calendar year Q2 2014.
