UPS Healthcare officially opened a new $20 million facility in west Singapore May 18 to support the logistics needs of the country’s expanding healthcare sector. The new location almost doubles UPS’s healthcare warehousing space in Singapore to more than 204,000 square feet.
The 93,646-square-foot facility, which is located in Tuas, Singapore, will be able to store healthcare products in temperatures ranging from -176 degrees to 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the venue will provide additional services like packaging, labeling, returns logistics and local customs brokerage.
“By expanding our healthcare logistics footprint into the west of Singapore, we strengthen our ability to manage and combine both ocean and air shipments and support the country’s ambitions of becoming a regional distribution center for the pharmaceutical industry,” said Ianne Loh, vice president of UPS Healthcare in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.
