Leading cold chain logistics specialist acquires Mandai Link Logistics, expanding its Asian presence
Lineage Logistics has announced it has acquired Mandai Link Logistics, marking the cold chain logistics specialist’s entry into Singapore.
Jeff Hogarth, Lineage’s president Asia Pacific, said expanding the company’s footprint in Asia through Singapore as a major trading hub has been a long-term strategic goal.
“Mandai established Singapore’s first fully automated cold storage facility and has been long considered a local market leader in the provision of cold storage warehousing and distribution services,” said Hogarth.
“Tan Seng Eng, chief executive of Mandai, is a visionary who made a huge bet by investing early in automation, and we are pleased that she will stay on as an advisor to Lineage.”
Hogarth said Lineage was focused on building out its Asia Pacific footprint so customers could take advantage of the company’s global end-to-end logistics capability.
“Mandai’s facilities, combined with our industry-leading technology and innovations, will assist customers to navigate increasing supply chain demands in Singapore and internationally,” said Hogarth.
“We look forward to working closely with Mandai’s customers on these new opportunities.”
Mandai’s facilities act as a one-stop hub for refrigerated food distribution in Singapore, equipped with a full range of solutions including procurement, transport and warehousing. It has a fleet of refrigerated trucks and a facility that can house 28,000 pallets.
Mandai’s main facility is fully automated, has integrated solar power, and a rainwater collection system for washing its refrigerated trucks.
