Cummins Inc has unveiled its new Global Logistics Hub in Singapore last week on July 22, 2015, which represents one of the company's eight master distribution hubs for parts and filters globally.
The other seven hubs are located in Mexico, Brazil, India, Belgium, China, and two in the United States. All of them support the company's international network and customers' businesses that span over 190 countries and territories.
Located at the CWT Pandan Logistics Centre, this US$5.4 million facility is a consolidation of operations from three distribution centres in Singapore, and will serve markets in the United States, Europe, China, India, as well as Northeast and Southeast Asia regions.
According to the company, Cummins Global Logistics provides logistics and supply-chain needs to Cummins businesses across the globe. It also facilitates the distribution of Cummins products and provides customer support for Cummins aftermarket business globally.
With this new establishment, Cummins predict that it will see a 20 percent boost in terms of productivity, order fulfilment time as well as operation cost savings.
"Singapore is a world-class global logistics hub with a strong advantage of being at the heart of Southeast Asia and sitting right across the major shipping lanes. Leveraging the global connectivity and strategic location of Singapore, Cummins will continue to enhance our capabilities in this part of the world to support the increasing needs of our customers," said Doug Sunkel, Executive Director of Cummins Global Logistics.
