“K” Line starts operations of New General Dry Warehouse in Bangkok
TOKYO : Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” LINE) is pleased to announce that its Thailand-based group company K LINE CONTAINER SERVICE (THAILAND) LTD. (KCST) will commence the operation of a new warehouse in the Bang Na district of Bangkok on April 1st. The new warehouse is situated in a prime location 30 km from Bangkok’s city center, the largest consumption area in Thailand. It is designed to handle e-commerce products, and instead of dispatching products on a per-pallet or per-case basis as before, is able to dispatch products on a per-item basis more swiftly. Multi-level racks that take advantage of the 15 meter-high ceiling have been installed for this purpose. With the installation of a 15 meter-wide canopy that can store a large variety of products in small quantities, the warehouse has been fully equipped with an all-weather cargo entrance and exit. Additionally, KCST has obtained four ISO certifications (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and ISO 28000) at its existing warehouses and plans to obtain those same certifications for the new warehouse within the year.
