Damco earlier this month commenced warehousing and distribution services at a new import and export logistics hub in Samrong, Bangkok. Strategically located on Poochao-saming-prai Road, between Bangkok city and major industrial zones Bangna and Bangpoo, Damco’s new facility is directly connected to Laem Chabang Port via a daily container barge service.
The logistics hub provides services ranging from barging and container freight station, to general and free trade zone warehousing, enabling customers to complete every aspect of import or export handling, including customs clearance and other value added services.
“The comprehensive logistics services provided at this hub can meet the logistics needs of every customer,” said Kiattichai Pitpreecha, Country Manager for Damco in Thailand.
“There are many different service combinations available to customers, depending on their needs. For example, a customer can barge import containers directly from the ship to our warehouse, store raw materials in the free trade zone and only deliver to factories when needed, to benefit from postponed duty payment,” added Kiattichai.
Already, a global food and beverage manufacturer has benefited with a cost savings of 30.0% by leveraging on the facility and barge terminal to bypass Lad Kra Bang Terminal’s Inland Container Depot in Bangkok for its import logistics and domestic distribution operations.
