GAC Thoresen Logistics Completes Major Upgrade of Amata Nakorn Facility

GAC Thoresen Logistics Completes Major Upgrade of Amata Nakorn Facility
Danny Gill

A project to upgrade and expand GAC Thoresen Logistics’ food-grade distribution facility at the Amata Nakorn Industrial Estate in Thailand’s Chonburi Province has been completed, boosting its capacity to 20,000 sqm and pallet positions to 32,000, more than double the number before the expansion.

The facility is located 42km from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport and 46km from Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port. GAC says the food grade facility boasts dry and ambient storage capability with marshalling and value-added service areas, as well as high hygiene storage areas including four temperature-controlled chambers ranging from 17 to 25 degrees Celsius.

Alwyn Mendonca, GAC Thailand’s Managing Director, says the expansion has been planned to meet increasing demand. “Thailand is one of the world’s top producers of food products and a major exporter of agricultural and marine products, so there is a constant demand for safe and clean warehousing solutions, including both ambient and temperature-controlled storage and transportation. Our upgraded facility will enable us to better support the increasing and varied needs of our customers, who include food, pharmaceutical and FMCG importers, manufacturers, distributors and exporters in Thailand’s eastern seaboard and beyond.”

GAC Thoresen Logistics is a joint venture between GAC Group and Thoresen Thai Agencies. Besides warehousing and distribution, the company also provides other logistics services including ocean and air freight, customs clearance and land transportation. In addition to the facility in Amata Nakorn, GAC Thoresen Logistics has warehousing facilities in Rayong and Bangpa.
