Abstract: Cross-border production chains of manufacturing require coordination and logistics. Third-party logistics services have thus taken this role as a link in the globalization of economic activities. Distriparks, a provider of total logistics to manufacturing, have emerged in Singapore to offer customized distribution and inventory management. Established as a traditional entrepôt by international trading, the city-state has revamped its distribution industry when transnational corporations come to choose Singapore as regional centre and local firms venture into the region. Distribution has regained its vitality in the global economy. It is demonstrated that distriparks have facilitated the restructuring of Singapore manufacturing and altered the internal structure of firms in their space utilization. Thereafter, a changing profile of industrial landscape, high-density industrial land use, and industrial agglomeration ensues.
