Global logistics service provider Rhenus Logistics has opened a new free zone warehouse in Bangkok, Thailand, as it aims to serve a wider range of industries.
The warehouse is strategically located within a 10-kilometre radius of three existing warehouses that house general cargo and dangerous goods.
Rhenus says the facility, located within Bangkok’s free trade zone, will offer a wider range of services to key industries like manufacturing, medical devices and healthcare, whilst offering better value for customers, including duty exemptions.
“The warehouse provides added convenience to customers who conduct business in the nearby Bangkok metropolitan city, with its close proximity to key freight hubs at Suvarnabhumi Airport and Thailand’s major sea ports,” the company said.
Rhenus noted that the facility features its latest in-house technology and an ecofriendly design. Customers in electronics and medical devices with specific storage requirements can safely and securely tap on its 450-sqm temperature and dust-free controlled room, ambient storage facilities and the anti-static testing room.
The warehouse supports pallet storage for standard cargo and block space for oversized cargo up to 3 tonnes, offers flexible in-transit capacity for large shipments, with comprehensive 24-hour security measures within and around the facility.
“With its strategic proximity to the Bangkok Free Trade Zone, we hope to better support evolving warehousing needs by providing more space options, improving quality and all while reducing operational costs for our customers,” said Tim Burger, director warehousing and transport, Rhenus Logistics Thailand.
