Panalpina Thailand, a global provider of supply-chain solutions from Switzerland, has expanded its distribution centre at TPARK Bangna.



Covering a space of 9,500 square metres, the new facility is designed to meet Thailand’s increasing demand for warehousing of lubricating oil, grease, chemicals and automotive components, said Matthew Mahoney, managing director of Panalpina World Transport (Thailand) Ltd . 

 “Panalpina Group has been expanding its business in Thailand since 1989 to provide global and local customers with air freight and ocean freight services, customer brokerage, in-land transportation, cross-border trucking, container freight station consolidation, and warehousing and storage services.” He said customers from the lubricating oil and grease industry represent 56 per cent of its business while chemicals and spare parts customers make up 33 per cent and 12 per cent. 

“Therefore, the group needs to expand its warehousing capacity in response to the rising demand, especially in the field of transportation of lubricating oil and grease, which has experienced steady growth in recent years,” he said.
