Keppel Logistics, a Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation (Keppel T&T) wholly-owned subsidiary, has expanded its logistics capabilities Down Under with Keppel Logistics (Australia) Pty Ltd. The wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Logistics will manage a 10,000 sm warehouse in Brisbane, Australia.
Located 10 km from Brisbane City, the Stafford facility commenced operations in August 2014 and will establish Keppel Logistics' position as one of the leading logistics players in the book publication segment. It currently serves as a Regional Distribution Centre serving Wiley's Australia and New Zealand markets, with Keppel Logistics (Australia) providing warehouse management and local transportation services for the global publishing company. The facility is expected to handle more than two million books per annum.
Mr Thomas Pang, CEO of Keppel T&T, said, "Keppel Logistics' strong track record in providing quality warehousing and thirdparty logistics services has enabled us to build lasting partnerships with our clients. We are delighted that our productivity and efficiency have paved the way for our maiden foray into Australia and more opportunities in the Asia Pacific region."
Separately, for its customer focus and quality execution, Keppel Logistics was recognised by Frost & Sullivan with the 2014 Singapore Domestic Logistics Service Provider of the Year Award. Keppel Logistics was presented with similar accolades by Frost & Sullivan four other times in the past six years.
Mr Pang received the award on behalf of Keppel Logistics at an awards luncheon held at the Growth Innovation Leadership Summit: Asia Pacific on 16 October 2014.
In his acceptance speech, Mr Pang attributed this to the strong trust that Keppel Logistics has built with its customers on the foundations of service excellence. Thanking the team, Mr Pang added that the award would spur Keppel Logistics to "work harder and bolster our efforts to innovate and take on any challenges ahead, while continuing to add value to our customers' businesses."
