The operation will provide air and sea transportation, warehousing, distribution, consolidation and other value-added services for the Southeast Asia region. It will draw on C.H. Robinson's global network of offices. Gary Tan has been named general manager of the CHRW-Singapore office, which is located at Changi Airport.
