Welcome to Toll City: your premiere, next-generation warehousing facility.
Toll City is purpose built and designed to cater for growth industries, including pharma and healthcare, component and parts management and eCommerce, while redefining supply chain excellence in the retail and FMCG industries.
But Toll City is more than a building — it’s a future-ready gateway to Asia Pacific and the world.
Situated less than 3km from the new Tuas Port, which will consolidate all of Singapore’s current container operations in one terminal by 2027, Toll City is an integrated local and regional hub that offers you the ability to move your goods with minimum on-ground transit time.
Toll city is designed to accommodate industry-specific technologies and automation for safer, more secure and faster throughputs and increased productivity to support future and current demands in the region.
At Toll we pride ourselves on being a value creation partner. Our customer journey begins with collaboration to truly understand your core business, so we can deliver you a fully customised, efficient logistics solution.
Toll City is designed to help you enter new markets, providing warehousing capacity, systems, processes and a connecting point in a region that is set to become one of the largest economic blocs in the world.
Within an environment of innovation, Toll City provides the latest in logistics technology and advancements to continually improve our service offering. Our systems include:
- SiTadeL Supply Chain Control Tower — Our award-winning IT platform allows continuous service monitoring and management, enhancing the traceability and visibility of our supply chain at all stages. The system features a mobile application to give drivers a real-time view of transit times, a web application for operations and supplier management, and devices that monitor and trigger event excursions.
- RFID goods tracking — We keep track of thousands of pallets in our warehouses with the use of RFID. When combined with robotics and automation, we are able to have an accurate and complete view of the stock levels inside our warehouse.
- State-of-the-art healthcare logistics hub — Toll City caters to the health industry with a dedicated healthcare hub built against stringent environmental testing and certification. Features include automated high-density storage systems, robust cold chain capabilities with temperature data loggers for the distribution of pharmaceuticals, biologics, vaccines and blood products, humidity control for long-term product storage and more, with stringent quality control checks at every stage.
- Smart cabinet for better storage and traceability — Our smart cabinet is an advanced inventory management capability that allows us to know real-time stock levels on our customers’ premises. It notifies the warehouse once a replenishment is needed and allows us to respond quickly and accurately to our customers’ needs.
Efficiency and productivity
Accommodating almost any configuration of technology to support current and future customers, Toll City is equipped to meet the region’s industry and economic demands.
Through careful consideration of customer requirements, we have partnered with developers using the best in technology and systems to promote efficiency and transparency across the supply chain.

Singapore provides a gateway to this growth. With its ability to develop tax-effective supply chains, world-class sea ports and airfreight facilities, and its pioneering use of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), it is a world leader in urban transportation and infrastructure.

A sustainable future
Toll City has received Gold Certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
LEED buildings are on average 25%–30% more energy efficient and are proven to contribute to increased productivity with improved ventilation, temperature control and reduced indoor pollution.
LEED initiatives at Toll City reflect our core value of caring for future generations and include responsible choices about architectural components, types of paint and adhesives used, choices on cooling and ventilation and rainwater harvesting.
We believe in leaving positive legacies in the communities in which we operate. For Toll City, we worked with our construction partner of choice to improve behavioural safety standards through ‘felt leadership’ principles, and assisted them in improving their risk management approaches for the benefit of those that work for them, and for the company itself.
It’s an international, evergreen commitment that is imbued in every facet of our operation. More importantly, we deliver transformations that are sustainable, because our actions and values become part of the company and the environments in which our employees, and our communities, live.
