On 29 May 2019, Bolloré Logistics received the Green Mark Platinum [1] for its latest warehouse - Blue Hub, during the BCA Awards ceremony [2] that took place at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore. Along with the LEED Gold and BiodiverCity® label, this marks the first certification received by an external organization that recognizes Bolloré Logistics’ commitment to reducing its environmental impact.

Blue Hub is Bolloré Logistics’ newest warehouse located in the west of Singapore.

It also incorporates top-of-line automated solutions like a multi-shuttle system and a Spiralveyor® conveyor to optimize storage density and energy consumption.

“It is heartening to know that our efforts have been positively recognized by the Authorities. It emboldens us to delve deeper into sustainable logistics in the future.” - said Frédéric Marcerou, Director of Bolloré Logistics Singapore. “With this recognition, we are certain that each step we take is towards the promise of creating a work environment that promotes sustainable development.”

This award is also fully aligned with Bolloré Logistics’ Sustainable Real Estate Policy, and its CSR Program, “Powering Sustainable Logistics”, which aims at reducing the environmental footprint of Bolloré Logistics activities.

As a major player in international transport and logistics, and supply chain management, the company specializes in providing customized solutions for the Cosmetics & Luxury, Healthcare, Oil & Gas and Aeronautics industries.
