ALOG's properties are strategically located near major expressways and ports in key logistics centres in Singapore and Australia. ALOG has a majority share of ramp-up warehouses in Singapore which enjoy modern and attractive technical specifications such as high floor loading, high ceiling heights and wide column spans. Ramp-up warehouse space in Singapore is limited due to high barriers to entry that exist for the development of new efficient ramp-up warehouses as specialised planning and design specifications are required for such properties.
As at 31 March 2020, the committed portfolio occupancy stood at 97.1% and the WALE (by net lettable area) was approximately 2.9 years.
The Manager has a professional team with extensive experience in fund and asset management in Singapore and regional logistics property markets, and brings with them diversity in terms of gender roles, nationalities and academic qualifications.
