SPAR International, one of the world’s largest food retail voluntary chains, has partnered with DHL Supply Chain and the Bangchak Retail Company (BCR) to establish up to 300 new convenience stores in Thailand by the end of 2020.
The deal will see DHL Supply Chain support Spar’s expansion plans with end-to-end transport, distribution and warehousing services across Thailand. BCR will provide the front-end store infrastructure for the Dutch retailer.
Spar’s supply chain will use the DHL Bangna Logistics Campus for ambient warehousing and distribution, and its Klong Prapa warehouse for handling frozen goods.
The infrastructure at DHL Supply Chain will support Spar’s quality standards with a range of features including CCTV systems, automatic fire protection, and temperature-controlled warehousing.
Both warehouses will be managed by WMOS, a warehouse management platform, to maintain levels of inventory accuracy and productivity in line with Spar’s global best practices
