Our Story

A pioneer in the Singapore logistics sector

CWT was set up in 1970 as a private arm of the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA) to provide warehousing and container trucking services in support of the onset of container terminal operations. One of the earliest logistics and trucking companies in Singapore, we diversified into other logistics and related services including the provision of warehouse management services for the storage and handling of soft and hard commodities, freight forwarding services and engineering services. CWT was listed on the Singapore Exchange in 1993 and we continued to firmly establish our presence in the region.

Expanding logistics footprints

In 2004, C&P Holdings, a privately-owned logistics company acquired shareholding control. Growth strategies leveraging on our sustainable competitive advantage enabled us to focus on providing niche logistics services, paving the platform for strong profit growth. Active steps were also taken to explore new business opportunities, both locally and abroad. Through synergistic acquisitions and joint ventures, we efficiently expanded our logistics footprints and global network throughout the world.

Our integration forward into commodity marketing

As part of our key underlying growth strategy, we increased focus and deepened equity in the commodities sector. In July 2011, we acquired MRI Trading AG to complement our existing logistics and collateral management activities to provide end-to-end solutions to customers in the commodities market. MRI, with its Head Office in Zug, Switzerland, is one of the global leading players in commodities marketing for base metal concentrates. With the acquisition of MRI, CWT gained a strong foothold in the huge commodities market and opened up a new revenue stream.

Today, CWT is a leading provider of integrated logistics and supply chain solutions committed to connecting world trade, corporate social responsibility and sustainable business growth.
