Located in Tuas, Toll City is a next-generation logistics hub that aims to meet the logistical needs of regional and global customers from different markets.
According to Toll Group, “Toll City is expected to increase Toll’s Asian network and traffic while its proximity to road links into Malaysia and the growing Jurong region in the West of Singapore will make the facility an excellent land-sea interface for customers.”
Comparable to the size of 15 football fields and cost S$228 million to build, Toll City is equipped with the latest technologies to fuel support for the growth in markets in the retail, FMCG and healthcare industries.
These technologies include:
- driverless vehicles;
- smart-city telematics to track and optimise road fleet in real-time;
- 3D printing; and
- Smart RFID cabinets for real-time inventory accuracy and accountability.
The logistics hub is also currently piloting new technologies to enhance work efficiency and safety.
Executive Vice President of Toll Global Logistics Singapore, Chief Executive Officer of ST Logistics, Vincent Phang said:
“Toll City in Singapore is a new growth chapter for Toll in Asia. Toll’s focus on technology developments will revolutionise the way people work, as we create resilient supply chain solutions that deliver smarter, faster and better outcomes for our clients. With the SiTadeL Control Tower in Toll City, we have been addressing Singapore’s urban logistics challenges with real-time visibility and monitoring of our moving assets. As a result, we offer an integrated supply chain management process that’s prepared for surge periods, and potential supply chain disruptions caused by human or natural disasters.”
Toll Group is looking into more ways that technologies could help with the logistical support required for the growing needs.
A few that they are exploring are:
- automated machine handling equipment;
- in-warehouse cycle-counting drones;
- voice picking and intelligent conveyor systems;
- augmented reality glasses for navigation and instruction; and
- exoskeletons for warehouse operations.
