GEODIS invests in New Container Freight Station in Singapore

Enabling customers to streamline their supply chains by offering consolidation and access to a range of multi-modal options

GEODIS, a global leading transport and logistics services provider, has announced the opening of its new Container Freight Station (CFS) in Singapore. Strategically located within the Keppel DistriPark free trade zone,  the CFS serves as an international hub and a key node within the highly secure GEODIS Road Network, which connects major air hubs and sea ports in Southeast Asia and China. Customers have available to them a wide range of multimodal options in sea, air and/or road transportation.

With Singapore’s strategic position and excellent connectivity as a transit hub, this facility plays a pivotal role in connecting customers to the rest of the world.  The CFS is managed by GEODIS’ own network experts, enabling better control, visibility and security of customers’ cargo. In place of its predecessor, which was a co-loading facility, it provides enhanced capabilities in consolidation services, bonded storage solutions and transshipment services. GEODIS customers have access to both full-container-load (FCL) and less-than-container-load (LCL) options.  

“With constant shifts of the global supply chain and competitive pressures, we recognize our customers’ need for flexibility, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Our new CFS offers them more control over their shipments and streamlined workflows. The options for consolidation or tapping into our multi-modal network make a lot of sense, not just financially, but also environmentally,” said Lakshmanan Venkateswaran, Sub-Regional Managing Director – Southeast Asia, Japan and Korea.
