News : DHL Opens Logistics Centre
Singapore, April 20, 2016 -- Logistics company DHL has opened a purpose-built multi-user facility in Tampines LogisPark.
The 90,000 square metre Advanced Regional Center (ARC) houses its first innovation centre outside Germany, along with DHL Supply Chain's Singapore country office, its Asia-Pacific regional office and regional call centre.
With this system, DHL's customers reap the benefits of automation without having to invest a large amount of money.
It said in a statement that the centre "creates a model for the future of warehousing in land-scarce countries and dense cities where land availability is limited and expensive".
Within the ARC is DHL's Asia-Pacific Innovation Center (APIC), which was jointly developed with the Singapore Economic Development Board. The APIC will pilot and develop new solutions based on technologies such as augmented-reality glasses and Cool Green Cell packaging.
Also at the launch of the ARC was Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam. Turning to the government's SkillsFuture programme, Mr Tharman announced that 50 SkillsFuture Study Awards for the logistics sector will be awarded this year; the award encourages Singaporeans to develop skills needed in future areas of demand.
