Wednesday, September 9, 2015
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.
“Our latest facility will expand our capability to serve customers who are sourcing from Vietnam’s fast growing manufacturing base. It also strengthens our position within Vietnam and South East Asia as the go-to supply chain specialist for automotive, retail, consumer and industrial customers who want to leverage on global sourcing,” said Komol Roongruangyot, APL Logistics head for South East Asia.
Anthony Tay, head for APL Logistics Vietnam said, ”Free trade agreements are increasingly being adopted in South East Asia to help drive global trade and make sourcing options even more attractive in this region. Our investment in this CFS facility and our global trade compliance expertise strengthens APL Logistics’ offering for customers who want to take advantage of these trade developments and get more out of their international supply chains.”
APL Logistics now operates six facilities in Vietnam, providing a comprehensive range of supply chain and logistics solutions, supported by partnerships with local market leaders.
