SDV, the global supply chain subsidiary of the Bolloré Group, announced on December 3 the official opening of its new warehousing facility in Pioneer Turn, Singapore.

This four-storey ramp-up new facility with nine floors of production and office space is the first warehouse in Singapore to be Green Mark Platinum certified. It is also the largest logistics center in Asia to be under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold Certification.

A total of S$55 million was invested into this green warehouse which spans an area of 42,000 sqm. This project embodies the values of SAVE PROGRAM which is SDV’s environmental customer solution to design eco-friendly solutions to reduce CO2 emissions.

Herbert de Saint Simon, CEO of SDV Worldwide, said: “The warehouse structure has been designed to be energy-efficient and waste management systems are in place to ensure that the site is sustainable.”

Yves Laforgue, South East Asia Director of SDV, added: “We strongly believe that Singapore is the ideal location to operate a regional distribution center for Asia Pacific. For the luxury retail industry, this new warehouse is integral to fulfilling our commitment to offer sustainable solutions to these clients with a 20 percent growth over the next five to six years.”

The World Bank recently ranked Singapore as the No.1 logistics hub among 155 countries globally in the 2012 Logistics Performance Index. Singapore’s strategic location in the heart of Southeast Asia and at the nexus of major shipping lanes has made it an important logistics hub and conduit for world trade.
