Damco expands in Thailand

Damco has started warehousing and distribution services at a new import and export logistics hub in Thailand.

The facility is located in Samrong between Bangkok city and major the industrial zones of Bangna and Bangpoo, and is connected to Laem Chabang Port via a daily container barge service.

The logistics hub provides services including barging, container freight stationing and general and free trade zone warehousing, along with customs clearance and other value added services.

Kiattichai Pitpreecha, country manager of Damco in Thailand, said: “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.”
