With a population of over 4.5 billion in 2018, Asia-Pacific is a highly diversified region home to nearly 60% of the world’s population. One of the world’s largest economies is present in the Asia-Pacific region, namely China.
Bolloré Logistics aims to further support the rapid, yet steady growth over the past 30 years. Headquartered in city-state Singapore for 32 years now, Bolloré Logistics has made it clear to develop its hubs and services with 4,460 staff by reinforcing its capability to pro-actively steer the supply-chain with the support of its IT systems, diversification, human capital and expansion of its network which is ongoing in the Asia-Pacific region.
More than 35% of our business is now intra-Asia. The ongoing development of our hubs in Asia-Pacific is a major part of our strategy to accompany customers and offer them a high-quality service.
A good example of this would be the opening of a 3rd logistics center in March 2015, located in Busan New Port (Free Trade Zone), South Korea, to support the operations of a global leader in energy management. This new investment marked a wider coverage of logistics services in South Korea and regionally.
In December 2012, Bolloré Logistics announced the official opening of its new 42,000 sqm warehousing facility in Pioneer Turn, Singapore. This four-storey ramp-up new facility with nine floors of production and office space was the first warehouse in Singapore to be Green Mark Platinum certified*. It is also the largest logistics center in Asia to be under LEED Gold Certification**.
In 2015, Bolloré Logistics introduced a more eco-friendly solution by announcing its very-first hybrid shuttle from its "Green Hub" in order to serve the fashion and luxury industry in Singapore downtown.
These green actions embody the values of POWERING SUSTAINABLE LOGISTICS, Bolloré Logistics' environmental customer solution to reduce CO2 emissions.
Bolloré Logistics has seen spectacular growth from the markets in this region and particularly in the luxury retail industry. This has propelled the Group to be proactive in developing a new hub which served a range of premium brands in cosmetics and luxury fashion industries with both regional distribution needs and sustainable development strategies.
Bolloré Logistics has set objectives for creating conditions for success through creation of diversified teams using common systems and emphasizing on the investment in people. In Asia-Pacific, this is seen by the Group's strengths in the aerospace, healthcare, oil and gas, as well as retail and telecom sectors.
Relying on the power of our network in Africa and Asia-Pacific as well, Bolloré Logistics operates reliable end-to-end solutions including to landlocked countries.
Businesses are supported by dedicated Africa desks throughout the regional network.
