Bollore Logistics has invested S$100 million in the Blue Hub in Singapore, a 50,000 sq m warehouse to support perfume and cosmetic customers.
The fully automated warehouse features a multi-shuttle system for optimising storage density while ensuring optimal inventory rotation.
It is equipped with a 43-metre-tall Spiralveyor conveyor with high energy efficiency, generating energy savings of up to 87%.
Certified as the first BiodiverCity project in Asia, Blue Hub focuses on sustainability and employee-centricity.
Focusing on sustainable architecture, it is equipped with an advanced energy-management system harnessing the Internet of Things to make predictive building analyses and a smart lighting control system.
Initiatives include a storm-water recycling system, energy and water consumption monitoring, a photocell sensor for harvesting daylight, a food digester for a zero-waste cafeteria and chemical-free landscape management.
The Blue Hub will inaugurate the second integrated innovation centre, B.Lab, which serves as a regional platform for interdisciplinary cooperation and research.
Cyril Dumon, CEO of Bollore Logistics Asia Pacific says: “Following the success of our Green Hub, Blue Hub follows the same philosophy by blending sustainability building-solutions with employee centric features. The facility also integrates B.Lab, our first innovation centre in Asia, which serves as a nexus for research, innovation and collaboration. The Blue Hub is the embodiment of Bollore Logistics’ focus on sustainability, innovation, and employee development.”
