Damco has officially opened a new 280,000 square foot distribution center in Binh Duong to support its growth in both its international and domestic volumes.

Located 30 km from Ho Chi Minh City, the new distribution center further strengthens Damco's network in Vietnam, which includes nine existing facilities.

The new facility is well connected by road transport, and allows it to serve both Cat Lai and Cai Mep ports.

Plans are also underway to further link the facility to barge infrastructure to supplement truck transport.

According to Narin Phol, country manager for Damco in Vietnam and Cambodia, the new distribution center will operate as an integrated logistics center offering multipurpose warehousing, a humidity-controlled environment, access to inland container depots and barge connectivity.

The company plans to develop this facility into an international consolidation hub, linking the Indochina region through its cross-border solutions.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
