Upon completion in 2020, the JTC Logistics Hub @ Gul will be Singapore’s first high-rise multi-tenant logistics facility to house container depots, warehouses and a heavy vehicle park—all within a single development.
This will reduce travelling time between logistics nodes, hence improving operational and cost efficiency for the logistics sector.
The eight-storey warehouse facility includes around 30 warehouse units, sized between between 1,700 and 2,500 square metres with flexibility to form larger units, and comes with 128 loading bays.
The inland container depot (ICD)—spread over two levels—will house up to two container depot units, with a maximum capacity of 6,000 TEUs per floor and complete with operational space for container inspection, maintenance and repair services.
The facility’s design has been developed for efficiency and safety through the single-directional heavy vehicle traffic flow. The traffic management system, which can be integrated with the automated overhead crane system, helps optimise container flow and communication across multiple parties, such as depot operators, logistics service providers and transportation companies.
