You’ll find us in the Red Lion, says DB Schenker Singapore

[ August 7, 2020   //   ]

DB Schenker has started operations at its new ‘Red Lion’ automated high-speed logistics hub in Singapore. At €101m, it is the single largest investment in any site globally in Schenker’s corporate history, located in the Airport Logistics Park at Changi Airport.

The highly-mechanized air freight hub and contract logistics warehouse extends over 51,400sq m on five floors –equivalent to seven football fields. A next generation Warehouse Management System and a synchronized IT platform increases productivity by up to 100% compared to manual processes, and reduces lead time for customers by 40% compared to non-integrated facilities.

Red Lion is also the first warehouse to offer an in-house designed roboticlabeling system, which uses 3D-vision technology and three robotic arms to apply labels in multiple languages on products of varying sizes, shapes, and configurations.
