Expanding the heavy cargo operations in the world’s busiest transhipment port
Looking to strengthen its position in one of the world’s busiest, if not the busiest, transhipment ports, Blue Water has opened the doors to its new 3PL warehouse for projects and oversized cargo in Singapore. With 4,500 square metres of indoor space and 2,800 square metres of outdoor space, the facility is focusing on oil and gas equipment and marine spares.
“With the addition of this modern warehouse, we provide short- and long-term storage solutions without depending on third parties in the world’s busiest transhipment port. We can store, shift and pick and pack cargo in a reliable and sustainable way, adding additional value to our services,” says Kevin Sandhu, Head of 3PL Services Blue Water Asia.
Eye on heavy cargo
The indoor warehouse features a high-spec selective racking with 450 pallet locations, capable of sustaining a remarkable load of 3 tonnes per beam of each rack. This surpasses average industrial racks in the market, showcasing Blue Water’s commitment to excellence.
In addition, specialised operations in the warehouse are supported by a range of heavy-duty forklifts, ranging from 3 tonnes to 16-tonne forklifts, a 45-tonne reach stacker as well as a 10-tonne lifting crane, ensuring seamless handling of goods of all sizes and weights.
“Customers trust us for our professionalism and deep expertise in planning and executing each project down to the smallest detail, ensuring safe and timely deliveries every time. Safe and secure storage is a crucial part of the value we bring to the supply chain, and we provide top-notch solutions for all your logistical needs,” adds Florian Pinz, Regional General Manager, Blue Water Asia.
