Lineage Logistics has purchased Mandai Link Logistics, marking the Novi, Michigan, USA-headquartered company’s market entry into Singapore. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Mandai established Singapore’s first fully automated cold storage facility and has been long considered a local market leader in the provision of refrigerated warehousing and distribution services,” said Linage Asia Pacific President Jeff Hogarth. “Tan Seng Eng, chief executive officer of Mandai, is a visionary who made a huge bet by investing early in automation, and we are pleased that she will stay on as an advisor to Lineage.”
Expanding Lineage’s footprint in Asia through Singapore as a major trading hub has been a long-term strategic goal for Lineage.
“Mandai’s facilities, combined with our industry-leading technology and innovations, will assist customers to navigate increasing supply chain demands in Singapore and internationally,” said Horgarth. “We look forward to working closely with customers on these new opportunities.”
Mandai serves as a one-stop shop for refrigerated food distribution in Singapore, offering 28,000 pallet positions and a full range of solutions including procurement, transport and warehousing. It has a fleet of refrigerated trucks as well as integrated solar power, and a rainwater collection system.
