In conjunction with French luxury products group LVMH, Bolloré Logistics Singapore is to build a S$10 million automation facility.
Jointly designed by Bolloré Logistics, LVMH and Dematic (the automation specialist which last week officially opened its new northern European headquarters in Oxfordshire), the facility’s combination of multi-shuttle system and picking technology is the first of its kind to be deployed in Singapore and the region.
“Automation is the key for Singapore’s logistics sector to cope with emerging patterns globally. The setup will be housed in Bolloré Logistics Green Hub, our high-tech logistic facility in Pioneer Turn, and we are happy to announce that the co-development of this automation has secured a long term commitment from LVMH. Bolloré Logistics strives to be at the forefront of innovation and prides itself in developing advanced supply chains for its customers,” said Cyril Dumon, Chief Executive Officer of Bolloré Logistics Asia Pacific.
Michael Bradshaw, Director Dematic SEA, added: “Working closely together with Bolloré Logistics, we have developed an innovative automated solution that will bring tremendous improvements in productivity, accuracy and space efficiency. This project represents a number of industry firsts both in Singapore and in the Region and we are delighted to be involved with the Bolloré Logistics team in designing, delivering and supporting the project.”
The facility will allow for higher storage density to make efficient use of limited warehouse space in Singapore. In terms of productivity, it will achieve throughput levels up to 10 times as fast compared to conventional methods, and will improve order lead time while using only half of the existing manpower resources.
