Kerry Logistics, a leading logistics service provider in Asia, has started construction of its Asia regional logistics hub in Singapore. The four-storey facility has a total area of 34,500 sq.m. and will support regional clients with a full range of integrated logistics services.
Kerry Logistics will also focus its Asian supply chain management activities at the hub to meet growing demand from clients in South East Asia and Australia. The facility is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012.
“This regional logistics hub will facilitate a comprehensive range of integrated logistics services for our customers in Asia, we are also incorporating ‘green’ features into the design of the building in order to reduce waste and save energy,” said Robert Tan, Managing Director, South Asia.
Construction of the environmentally-friendly facility will incorporate green features including an estimated 30-35% energy savings through design that maximizes natural light and reduces the need for artificial light.
The facility will also have a rainwater harvesting system for irrigating the surrounding landscape and plants, and an air-conditioning system that improves chiller efficiency and utilises refrigerants with low ozone depletion properties. The building will comply with LEED (Gold) requirements.
