TOKYO – MOL Logistics (Japan) Co., Ltd. (President: Toshifumi Kato) today announced the start of nonresident storage and consolidation service of furniture in Bangkok, for a Japanese major mail order company. MOL Logistics will operate a warehouse owned by a Thai warehouse company partly capitalized by Japanese investors.
MOL Logistics also operates its own warehouse in Bangkok, but decided to use the other facility because it recently acquired Thai customs approval for a 10,000m2 Free Trade Zone (FTZ) and is conveniently located just minutes from both Swannapoom Airport and Bangkok Airport.
This will be MOL Logistics’ fourth nonresident storage business, following operations in Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Vietnam.
MOL Logistics’ unique L’vis system, which combines a warehouse management system (WMS) and a tracing system (SCM-HUB) for order receiving, ordering, and cargo, allows Japanese buyers to check their orders with suppliers in Thailand online (PO), storage of cargo, stock in warehouse, shipping instructions to Japan (SO), departure, and stock in transit at sea. All of these features add up to faster, more efficient service.
L’vis is not simply a combination of WMS and SCM-HUB, but can drastically reduce development costs compared to conventional systems, linking WMS and SCM-HUB data from Thai warehouse company owns in a convenient format in cooperation with the partner system company.
MOL Logistics( Japan) will use the FTZ warehouse, which has an excellent location and sufficient space for expansion from its current 3,0002m area, to offer efficient, cost-effective logistics solutions for import and export customers in Thailand.
