Kerry Logistics reorganises supply chain after floods in Thailand

Laem Cha Bang, Thailand: Kerry Logistics has relocated its Express command centre from Bangkok to the east of Thailand, within 20km of Laem Cha Bang deep sea port, following the severe flooding affecting Bangkok and surrounding area.

The company has also set up distribution centres in Siracha, Chonburi,  Chacheongsao and Rayong and in Korat Province which are all unaffected by widespread flooding.

“We have acted promptly to maintain supply chain integrity and maintain distribution flow for our customers and their suppliers. We are focused on prioritising food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and medical, and life-saving equipment,” said Alex Ng, general manager, Kerry Logistics (Thailand).

“However because of the flooding it is inevitable that delivery lead times will be longer than usual but we are fully operational for the duration of the flooding crisis,” he added. According to the Daily Telegraph, over 500 people have died in Thailand’s worst floods in half a century. New evacuations have been ordered in Bangkok.
