The 1-million sq ft Toll City in Tuas is poised to be a gateway for the firm's Asia-Pacific operations.
Japanese transportation and logistics firm Toll Group opened its over one million sq ft logistics hub in Tuas worth $228m, an announcement revealed.
The Japan Post arm’s Toll City which is the size of 15 football fields is expected to increase the firm’s network and traffic in Asia. Its strategic location in Tuas and its proximity to road links into Malaysia and the Jurong region is also poised to attract land-sea interface for customers.
The project is poised to complement existing operations in the Asia-Pacific region and serves as a gateway that will connect regional and global customers as it is situated three kilometres away from the upcoming Tuas Port.
“This [Toll City] is in line with the Logistics Industry Transformation Map, catalysing deep supply chain innovation that translates into better business opportunities and good jobs within the logistics sector in Singapore,” Economic Development Board (EDB) assistant managing director Mr Kelvin Wong commented.
The hub will be home to new technologies such as driverless vehicles, smart-city telematics,3D-printing, and Smart RFID cabinets for real-time inventory accuracy and accountability.
In addition, Toll is in the process of developing new technologies including automated machine handling equipment, in-warehouse cycle counting drones, voice picking and intelligent conveyor systems, augmented reality glasses for navigation and instruction, and exoskeletons for warehouse operation.
