Yang Kee Logistics Pte Ltd, together with LOGOS SE Asia, breaks ground to commence constructing its signature facility, the Yang Kee Integrated Logistics Hub. Integrating an automated crane hoisting system to a special framed architectural structure, Yang Kee Integrated Logistics Hub will include the world’s first framed multi-storey automated container depot that addresses the productivity issues the traditional industry is currently facing.
With a total gross floor area of approximately 66,000 square metres, the S$150m facility will comprise five storeys of warehouse space, workshops, office units, food and beverage outlets, roof top parking, and two storeys of automated container depot. Located in close proximity to the Lube Park and Tuas Mega Port, the Facility will be well positioned to serve existing and potential customers from the shipping, industrial and oil & gas sectors upon completion.
The key challenges faced in this still traditional sector are heavy congestion, where drivers have to queue long hours to collect and return empty containers at depots; driver shortages; and land scarcity. The innovative integration of the automated crane hoisting system and the architectural building structure will increase Yang Kee’s operational efficiencies and minimise conventional manoeuvring space, which will in turn, raise its overall competitiveness.
