Thailand-based Titan-VNS Auto Logistics Co. Ltd. recently announced they will form a strategic partnership with supply chain services provider Albatross Logistics Co. Ltd. The new partnership will operate under the umbrella of “Logistics Alliance”.
The goal of this new alliance is for both companies to draw on their expertise to enhance the competitiveness and execution of their core services along with improving service to customers by leveraging the strengths of the two companies, both individually and together.
Titan-VNS President, Bordin Tanthaphaiboon had this to say about the new alliance, “We’re very pleased to launch the first comprehensive Logistics Alliance in Thailand which we firmly believe is going to be a win-win for both companies as well as being of absolute benefit to our customers going forward. The increased strengths that we will be able to extract from working closely together and sharing resources – such as staff, warehousing, IT and many back-office functions – will make us immediately much more competitive and offer both companies greater scope and depth. We expect to make significant cost savings which will in turn further enhance our competitiveness and the bigger footprint will allow us to think bigger. I’m very proud of the management and staff of this company who have worked tirelessly to get us to where we are today and who have seen this opportunity as an opportunity to further raise our game. Albatross Logistics bring a lot of strengths to the table that will benefit the ambitious growth strategy we have for Titan-VNS.”
Equally pleased with the new partnership was Titan-VNS Managing Director, Peera Thaweechart who added, “The new Logistics Alliance is a very big opportunity for Titan-VNS to make strides forward and we are looking forward to unlocking new potential across many areas. We have worked closely with Albatross Logistics for a number of years now, the two companies operate in a similar sector, have many complementary strengths and we have complete trust in each other’s ability to deliver, so to move forward into a more formal alliance will allow us to approach the future with new strengths and a greater competitiveness. We have seen that strategic alliances between major global OEMs have brought benefits for each party, for example, the long-standing Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance is very well documented and here in Thailand there are alliances such as Mazda and Ford or General Motors and Isuzu. More automotive alliances are growing worldwide, an example is the recent Ford-VW pact and another is Mercedes and BMW working together on mobility. The landscape is changing very rapidly with electric vehicles, mobility and driverless cars all set to make huge impact in the coming years and change the face of the industry at every level and we believe that strategic alliances in the supply chain sector are overdue and will bring improvement to logistics operations as the future evolves beyond recognition, so we’re very pleased to focus and push ahead in this strategy. I’m completely confident that this alliance will bring us a lot of benefits and our team are excited to work closely with Albatross going forward.”
