As Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation (Keppel T&T) continues to achieve new milestones in its growth strategy, it spares no effort in nurturing connections with potential partners and customers.
On 21 April 2012, Keppel T&T celebrated the completion of the refurbishment and redevelopment of its oldest warehouse. The project was completed with a perfect safety record, on time and within budget.
Keppel Logistics warehouse area at 44 Benoi Road was doubled to 19,800 sm to meet increasing demand for customised logistics services. The expansion is in line with its growth strategy to be the leading integrated logistics solutions provider in the Asia Pacific region.
The facility is currently fully occupied and provides one - stop integrated logistics services to support the operations of Keppel FELS. Customised to serve as an offshore and marine logistics hub, the warehouse is equipped with modern material handling equipment, such as specialised overhead crane systems and high-tier very narrow aisle pallet storage systems. It also features high ceilings and wide-column spacing to ensure optimum use of space.
Equipped with green features, the warehouse achieves lower energy consumption through the use of natural lighting and ventilation as well as energy-saving devices.

Keppel T&T also welcomed visitors who were keen to learn more about its solutions and to promote stronger ties. On 15 May 2012, an 18-member delegation from Zhoushan City, Zhejiang province, led by Mr Zhang Wenke, Deputy Commander of Diaolang (Diaoliang) Project Construction Headquarters, Zhoushan City, visited Keppel T&T's headquarters in Singapore.
The guests were warmly received by Mr Vincent Ko, CEO for Logistics China, Keppel T&T, and other senior management representatives from across Keppel. Following a presentation on the Keppel Group, the delegation gained a deeper understanding of Keppel's core businesses and capabilities, particularly its competencies in integrated port logistics services in China as well as its expertise in cold chain logistics.
Keppel T&T has a significant presence in China through its subsidiary, Keppel Logistics (Foshan) Limited, a leading integrated port logistics service provider. Keppel T&T is also developing a river port along Yangtze River, which will serve Wuhu City, Anhui Province and the central region of China when completed. Earlier this year, Keppel T&T's wholly-owned subsidiary signed a joint venture agreement with the Jilin City Government to jointly develop and operate the Sino-Singapore Jilin Food Zone International Logistics Park.
