Lineage Logistics LLC announced that it has acquired Mandai Link Logistics, marking the 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 cold storage warehousing and distribution services,” said Jeff Hogarth, president Asia Pacific at Lineage.
“Tan Seng Eng, CEO 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.”
Hogarth said in a statement that expanding Lineage’s footprint in Asia through Singapore as a major trading hub has been a long-term strategic goal for the Company.
“Mandai’s facilities, combined with our industry-leading technology and innovations, will assist customers to navigate increasing supply chain demands in Singapore and internationally.
“We look forward to working closely with Mandai’s customers on these new opportunities.”

Its main facility is fully automated, has integrated solar power, and has a rainwater collection system for washing its refrigerated trucks.
Hogarth noted that Lineage, as an internationally integrated company, was focused on further building out its Asia Pacific footprint so customers could take advantage of Lineage’s leading global end-to-end logistics capability.
