Yusen Logistics Co., Ltd. of Thailand continues its expansion with a new warehouse in Laem Chabang. The facility, which opened in January 2014, brings the company’s total warehousing space in Thailand to approximately 250,000 square meters (2,691 square feet).
The 30,000 square meter (323-square-foot) warehouse stores chemical, food, pharmaceutical and other products. It is located 13 km from the port of Laem Chabang and is in close proximity to a major road that connects the port to Bangkok. The warehouse also has access to Yusen Logistics' container yards and truck terminals, enabling efficient handling of export and import cargo.
In addition to traditional storage functions, the warehouse handles everything from receiving raw materials for chemical and food products, to drumming and other value-added services, customs clearance and delivery. The facility also complies with Good Manufacturing Practices, Thai Food and Drug Administration, Halal, and other quality and control standards, enabling high-quality warehouse operations. Additional land within the site premises has been secured for potential expansion up to 35,000 square meters as needed in the future.
Yusen Logistics previously opened another warehouse 5 km northeast from the new warehouse in July 2013. By combining the functions of the existing warehouse and the new facility, the company will provide warehousing services that cover the upstream and downstream of its customers’ industries.
