Singapore (VNA) – Singapore has officially opened Toll City, a logistics hub worth 228 million SGD (167 million USD) situated close to the soon-to-be-opened Tuas Port.

The more than 100,000 sq.m hub is located near road links to Malaysia and the growing Jurong region of Singapore. It is expected to improve the Toll Group’s Asia-Pacific network and traffic flow.

Toll City is designed to serve local and regional markets for sectors such as retail, fast moving consumer goods, and healthcare. It has accommodated new technologies such as driverless trucks and 3D printing.

The healthcare hub in Toll City provides its clients with smart cabinets, which can store high-value medical tools, keep real-time data of stock levels, and automatically request replenishments when stocks reach their reorder point. 

With the SiTadeL Control Tower, Toll City has been addressing Singapore’s urban logistical challenges with real-time visibility and monitoring of moving assets. As a result, they offer an integrated supply chain management process that can prepare for surge periods and potential supply chain disruptions caused by human or natural disasters.

Singaporean Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing said, “The need for efficient, timely urban logistics must not be underestimated as we progress into the future. This is why, in Singapore, we are going to test out new concepts in urban logistics solutions and build these skills into a key competitive branch.” -VNA
