  3. Nationwide locker network by end-2022; parcel collection points within 250m of all HDB homes Read more at https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/nationwide-locker-network-end-2022-people-pick-parcels-within-250m-hdb-homes SINGAPORE — From late 2020, the Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) will progressively roll out a nationwide network of 1,000 parcel locker stations in public locations such as public housing estates, MRT stations and community clubs. These will all be within 250m of every Housing and Development Board (HDB) flat. The lockers are meant to make it more efficient for couriers to deliver parcels, so that they no longer have to go door to door. The nationwide initiative was announced on Tuesday (March 3) in Parliament during the debate on the budget of the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI). Speaking during the debate, Communications and Information Minister S. Iswaran noted that the growth of e-commerce has driven a rapid rise in parcel deliveries worldwide. He added that in Singapore, about 200,000 parcels are delivered daily, and e-commerce is projected to grow at 12 to 20 per cent annually over the next five years. “It is neither productive, nor sustainable, for this growing volume of packages to all be delivered to the doorstep,” Mr Iswaran said. “We do need alternative solutions. We must enhance Singapore’s last mile delivery infrastructure.” One such solution, he said, is the nationwide parcel locker station network, an expansion of a pilot that was launched in Bukit Panjang and Punggol’s HDB towns in 2018. Under the pilot programme, there are 23 locker sites in Bukit Panjang and 39 in Punggol. Unlike the pilot, when the nationwide initiative kicks in, locker sites will no longer be run by national postal agency Singapore Post (SingPost) and locker service operator BluPort, but by IMDA. However, the authority will partner SingPost to leverage the postal agency’s “extensive postal service experience”. It will also work with online shopping firm Shopee to co-develop solutions to meet the growing demand of e-commerce. IMDA said the pilot showed that there was a four-fold increase in delivery efficiency. Delivery drivers were able to despatch 250 parcels in a day compared with about 60 parcels if they were to do it door-to-door. Three quarters of the locker users surveyed showed that they were satisfied with the service, based on a National University of Singapore study done in September last year, IMDA said. “Building on the pilot’s achievements, IMDA will scale up the network of parcel lockers and deploy them nationwide to better serve the needs of Singapore residents,” it added. Assistant Professor He Long, who is from the department of analytics and operations at the National University of Singapore Business School, said that the locker system manages to boost delivery productivity by reducing the time taken by couriers to travel all the way to the doorstep of customers. The lockers have also helped to optimise delivery routes used by the couriers, Dr He added. The lockers have also helped to optimise delivery routes used by the couriers, Dr He added. Separately, Ms Sim Ann, the Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information, said during the debate on MCI’s budget that SingPost is improving its service standards to “rebuild public trust”. "They have extended delivery hours for peak periods, improved staff remuneration and hired more postmen," she said. This, after the company had a number of service lapses in 2018 and early last year, she said. SingPost was fined S$300,000 for not meeting quality service standards in the delivery of letters in 2018, after being fined S$100,000 for similar lapses the year before. Ms Sim noted that consumer complaints fall by about 40 per cent in December last year compared with 2018, and that customer satisfaction has also grown. She added that MCI and IMDA will continue to work closely with SingPost to enhance its service standards.

  12. Bros, bad news for most... Those staying in HDB units please brace yourselves for this ridiculously absurd price increase of as much as 73% while those staying in landed properties lucky you price decrease of 3% soon... From CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1204325/1/.html Waste collection fees expected to rise By Joanne Chan | Posted: 29 May 2012 2138 hrs SINGAPORE: Households in Singapore can expect to gradually pay more to have their trash collected. The National Environment Agency (NEA) said the move is aimed at uplifting the waste collection industry, which is struggling with rising operating costs while it grapples with improving service standards. Industry players said these challenges have been made harder by government contracts that have locked in fees for the past seven to eight years, with no provision for adjustments. With several contracts up for renewal over the next few years, the NEA, which manages the public waste collection scheme, is looking to reshape the industry. For the purpose of waste management, Singapore is currently divided into nine sectors, served by four companies. This will be reduced to six sectors, to help companies achieve economies of scale. Andrew Tan, CEO of the National Environment Agency, said: "This in turn will translate into greater affordability and at the same time, giving opportunities for the waste collectors to invest in the capital, in the training of their workforce and also the equipment needed to do a good job in terms of waste collection." Chairman of the Waste Management and Recycling Association, Guah Eng Hock, also pointed out that waste collection companies are required in their contracts to have a recyclable sorting facility in each sector. He said that with the larger sectors, companies will be able to enjoy greater economies of scale. A standard waste collection fee will also be introduced. Today, households pay as little as S$4.03 per HDB flat, or as high as S$22.50 for a landed home. Prices also differ between estates. For example, HDB flats in the city area currently pay S$4.03, while those in Pasir-Ris and Tampines fork out S$6.87. The difference in pricing is due to separate contracts being called for each sector, subjected to open bidding. Moving forward, all households will pay a "uniform fee" - depending on whether it is an HDB flat or landed property. The fee will be derived from the weighted average of successful tender bids submitted by public waste collectors. The first to come under the new fee structure will be households in Pasir-Ris, Tampines and Bedok. From July, HDB properties in those areas will pay S$7, while landed homes will pay S$23.19. The NEA said households would have had to pay more, if the new uniformed fee structure was not applied. The new uniformed fee structure will be progressively rolled out to the rest of Singapore by 2015. In return for higher fees, waste collection companies will have to meet higher service standards. This includes having quieter and cleaner vehicles, and responding quicker to public feedback. Companies will also have to provide better incentive schemes to encourage households to recycle. Singapore's only landfill on Semakau island is currently at half its capacity, and is expected to run out of space by 2040. Thus, recycling remains a key strategy for managing waste in Singapore and the government hopes that consumers and businesses will start at the source - by sorting their recyclables from other waste. Singapore's recycling rate currently stands at 59 per cent - a long way from its long-term target of 70 per cent. -CNA/ac

Maybe because the publicity of this will help his business? If people owe me money I think I also will engage this Double Ace Agency! They sure go the extra mile! GEMS! PSB should give them award! The face of the Mata (black shirt main pic) makes me smile. His expression is like 'KNS, you play punk limpeh will punch you right on your ear'.

  17. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U189SwhPXKI The death of Paul Walker, star of the Fast and Furious films has been an unmitigated tragedy. We know him from his films, but we gearheads also know him as one of us. In October last year, Matt Farah, host of The Smoking Tire, toured the seriously impressive car collection, which serves as a reminder of just what a passionate fan of driving and cars he was. One of the great things about cars is that they offer you a window into who someone is and what they care about. And over the course of this eight-minute video, we get to see what Paul Walker loved about cars. The literally dozens of Saleen Mustangs hint at a love of unpretentious blue collar speed. I was particularly pleased to see how many of the normally unloved Fox body Mustang’s Walker had. Sure, with that money, he could have bought something faster, newer, and sexier. But no, he chose to be interesting. That personality is on display throughout the collection, whether it’s a rare German sports car like the BMW M1, an old school Mercury two door wagon, or the gorgeous but slow Volvo P1800. It seems that Paul Walker loved cars for their souls. But clearly from the three Porsche GT3s that are scarred from going to war on the track, we know that these cars weren’t simply owned to be looked at. Yes, we should be sad that Mr. Walker is gone, as we should be sad whenever we lose anyone. We should also take a moment, though, to share in something that speaks of passion and joy.
  18. According to BT, more than 30 units booking for Ferrari F12 Berlinetta over the weekend. This definitely reflect so many rich people in SIN today. I am not sure if these are collection or to be driven? Is it easier for corperate tax rebate in SIN??? Probably I understand SIN is one of the most easiest country to do business compare to many.

    Take a look inside Porsche

    [extract] When Porsche first opened its original museum in 1976, it was relatively small in size and it could hold around 20 cars at any given time. In 2009, the company opened a new museum in Zuffenhausen, just next to its headquarters. The new museum is much grander in scope and bigger in scale and the new place could hold 80 exhibits at a given time. To show off the new home of Porsche
