July 2, 2019: Bolloré Logistics has unveiled its 50,000 sq metre state-of-the-art warehouse, Blue Hub, in western Singapore.

The warehouse is fully automated with a view to supporting the growth of customers in the perfumes and cosmetics sector. The site features an automated multi-shuttle system for optimising storage density while ensuring optimal inventory rotation. It is also equipped with a 43-metre-tall Spiralveyor® conveyor with high energy efficiency, generating energy savings of up to 87 percent and thus reducing costs.

Blue Hub will also be home to B.Lab, a regional innovation platform fostering collaborative work between sector stakeholders, with the aim of developing value-creating solutions using robotics, digital, and sustainable technologies. B.Lab will work with local universities to train young minds on creative thinking and the creation of logistics solutions.

Commenting, Cyril Dumon, CEO of Bolloré Logistics Asia-Pacific said, “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 center in Asia, which serves as a nexus for research, innovation and collaboration. The Blue Hub is the embodiment of Bolloré Logistics’ focus on sustainability, innovation, and employee development.”

Green Hub is a logistics hub wholly-owned by Bolloré Logistics. Opened in 2012, it is the first Green Mark Platinum warehouse in Singapore and the largest logistics centre in Asia to obtain Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.

Bolloré Logistics aims to make Blue Hub an icon of new-generation sustainable architecture. It is equipped with an advanced energy-management system, which harnesses the Internet of Things to make predictive building analyses, and a smart lighting control system. Further 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.
