APL Logistics announced the opening of its latest consolidation center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It is the largest single-roof container freight station (CFS) within the company’s South East Asia CFS network. The facility will add further scale to the company’s consolidation and value-added services network for customers with growing global and regional sourcing needs.
The CFS is strategically located near major sea and airports around Ho Chi Minh City. It includes over 500,000 square feet of bonded / CFS warehouse space, 80,000 square feet of secured parking space easily accommodating 200 forty-foot trucks, and 170 loading and receiving bays, translating to approximately 170 trucks at one time. Besides being scale-efficient, transport time to international sea and airports will be equal or better than existing facilities around the city. The facility is also compliant with international standards for security and safety with environmentally-friendly features.
