The new S$127 million (US$101.6 million) 50,000 sqm Benoi centre brings the company’s footprint in Singapore to eight facilities totalling 219,700 square metres. The expansion spotlights Menlo’s commitment to investing in the growing market for distribution services in Singapore, and the country’s rising prominence as a strategic logistics hub for Asia, the company said.

Bianco Jr., president of San Francisco, California-based Menlo Logistics. “Our long-term lease for this facility with our real estate partner, Mapletree Logistics Trust, is another demonstration of Menlo’s commitment to the Singapore market, not only in wine and spirits, but also in distribution capacity for automotive, consumer electronics and apparel, aerospace and industrial.
