Dow Chemicals established the S4TAR SEA (South East Asia) programme to enhance collaboration with its logistics services partners in the region and recognise strong performance in safety, service, sustainability and social responsibility.

Stolthaven Singapore underwent a thorough assessment by Dow and scored highly in all four areas. General manager Chek Chai Foo says: ‘Dow rated our service as consistently good and reliable and this was further enhanced through our electronic data interchange project with them. We also scored much higher on sustainability than the three runners-up. This is due to our many local sustainability initiatives, including green terminal transportation.’

As part of this programme, Stolthaven Singapore has:

  • Purchased pre-owned electric golf buggies that a nearby golf club was planning to dispose of and is using them to transport larger equipment around the terminal.
  • Refurbished bicycles are the main mode of transport for people around the terminal (and most other Stolthaven facilities), which are environmentally friendly and also keep employees healthy.
  • And in 2022, Stolthaven Singapore stopped using disposable plastic cutlery and utensils onsite.


‘Winning this award three years in a row demonstrates our commitment to safety, customer service, sustainability and social responsibility…Congratulations and thank you to everyone, including our colleagues from the global team and other shared functions, who have contributed to this achievement,’ adds Foo.
