The Gulf Agency Company (GAC) is planning to invest US$6 million to build a modern warehousing and distribution facility in Thailand.

Strategically located in the Amata Nakorn Industrial Estate of Thailand, the facility will occupy a land of measuring 10,000m2 and offers more than 14,000 racking positions.

“Once complete during mid-2007, the facility will offer end-to-end supply chain management solutions, including inbound logistics, warehousing, retail distribution and value added services, such as packing, kitting and sampling,” said John Vermeiren, general manager for GAC Thailand. “The distribution centre will have an effi cient racking layout, enabling maximum storage and fast throughput with the latest material handling equipment, warehousing and inventory tracking systems, as well as storage facilities for climate controlled products.”

The decision to invest in this facility follows GAC’s successful bid to provide Mead Johnson with third party logistics services in Thailand. Under the agreement, GAC’s scope of work includes warehousing and transportation for its raw and packing materials, as well as finished goods for export to certain Asian destinations.
