Specialist logistics provider JF Hillebrand has chosen Menlo Worldwide Logistics to provide logistics and customs brokerage to William Grant & Sons in Singapore.

A subsidiary of diversified freight transportation and logistics company Con-way, Menlo has a 320,000ft² multi-client warehouse at 30 Boon Lay Way in Singapore.

The company will provide warehousing and inventory management services for products distributed by the whisky distiller.

Menlo’s multi-client warehouse management solution allows sharing existing IT platforms and offers management and labor infrastructure, requisite equipment and assets, and geographic network of pre-configured warehouse operations.

Besides labeling and repacking, the scope of the partnership also includes import container clearance, customs permit declaration, container trucking, product unloading and put-away, storage of dutiable cargoes and point-of-sale material, bond-to-bond transfer of cargoes, re-export shipments and delivery of cargoes to port.

JF Hillebrand Singapore branch manager Ken Goh said: "Bringing Menlo into the solution with William Grant & Sons made perfect business sense, and we look forward to working together with success."

Menlo Worldwide Logistics South Asia managing director Desmond Chan said: "Our capabilities complement JF Hillebrand’s in Singapore and we’re thankful for the opportunity to work with them as they bring a more comprehensive logistics services package to Southeast Asia."
