New DHL Asia Pacific Innovation Center in Singapore develops game-changing logistics solutions


The multi-million dollar facility is DHL’s first innovation center outside of Germany, and the first dedicated center for innovative logistics services in the Asia Pacific region. The center is located within the S$160m (€104m) DHL Supply Chain Advanced Regional Center (ARC) building at Singapore’s Tampines LogisPark.

Launched with the support of the Economic Development Board (EDB), the APIC showcases futuristic technologies that will transform logistics operations. These include augmented reality “smart glasses” for warehouse assembly-lines and product picking; drones for delivery of time- critical goods like medicines; Maintenance on Demand (MoDe) vehicles that use machine-to- machine (M2M) sensors to boost vehicle uptime by 30 per cent; and driverless shuttles for faster, more efficient transportation.
