Asendia opens new fulfilment centre in Singapore

Asendia opens new fulfilment centre in Singapore

The Singapore Centre will offer a comprehensive suite of services including order processing, global distribution, storage and stock management. The Warehouse Management System is integrated to major Asian marketplaces, and backed with automated data receipt and real time inventory, and web-based real-time reporting and data return. It is designed for ‘pick & pack’ fulfilment and offers postal services for goods at all value levels - low-value, premium and express.

 

Due to the Port of Singapore’s free-trade status and proximity to Asian manufacturing hubs, customers will benefit from reduced transport costs and more efficient tax and duty management, said Asendia.

 

Dieter Pluess, CEO Asendia Singapore, said: “Online shopping continues to gather pace and shoppers expect ever improving e-commerce experiences. At the same time many of customers are looking for ways to do things faster, better and more efficiently. Being able to have orders ‘picked & packed’ in the region close to manufacture saves them time and reduces their environmental footprint.

 

“Having a fulfilment base in Singapore is very attractive to our US and EU customers, as they benefit from lower warehousing costs and being able to fulfil orders close to where products are made.”

 

Separately, Asendia has signed a strategic partnership agreement with DTDC Express Ltd, a leading Indian express and parcel service provider. This enables DTDC to offer Indian retailers access to Asendia’s global postal network with competitive tracked solutions to all key destinations such as the United Kingdom, the USA, Australia, Canada and many more.
