YCH Group unveils Supply Chain City

by Cheryl Tay

YCH Group has successfully broken ground for Supply Chain City™ (pictured), an upcoming "premier supply chain nerve centre" in Asia. The event, held on Friday, 7 December, was attended by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

Situated at Jurong West St 23, Supply Chain City™ features Fusionaris™, a first-of-its-kind combination of a Ramp-up Integrated Solution as well as an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS).

To be completed in 2014, the facility features half a million sq ft of office space and around 1.5 million sq ft of warehouse space, according to Robert Yap, Chairman and Chief Executive of YCH. It also has a 45m high ASRS and a five-floor ramp-up integrated solution.

Within close proximity to the Boon Lay (Jurong Point) and Lakeside MRT stations, Supply Chain City™ also integrates lifestyle and community-centric amenities in a single place.

They include function halls and exhibition galleries, as well as training and conference facilities. Supply Chain City™ will also provide lifestyle and F&B outlets, such as cafeterias and alfresco eateries, and feature separate office and logistics tower blocks with areas for community events, such as a central podium, a green rooftop and landscaped relaxation areas.

Notably, the project has been awarded with the Green Mark Gold Plus and USGBC LEED Gold certification.

"The development of Supply Chain City™ is a significant milestone in the 57 years of YCH Group's supply chain legacy. Our world-pioneering Fusionaris™ has been designed to create infinite possibilities for seeding innovative value-added solutions enabling agile, flexible and scalable supply chains that are today's competitive edge for leading world-class MNCs," added Yap.Cheryl Tay, Editor of CommericalGuru, wrote this story.

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.

I mention that in case someone reading this story about a push to replace horses with motorized carriages thinks they've stumbled onto some archival piece by accident. It's been more than 100 years since the first vehicles began to trundle around Manhattan, but the last remaining vestiges of horse-powered transport in the city could be nigh — if the backers of a massive electric wagon get their way.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
