WORLD'S largest food company Nestle has appointed global market leader for contract logistics solutions, DHL Supply Chain (DHL), to manage warehousing operations for its food products in Myanmar, which include household brands such as Coffee mate, MILO and Nescafe.
Total operations for Nestle products spans 4,000 sqm, which accounts for more than 60 per cent of total warehouse space in DHL's first multi-user warehouse in the country, which is located next to Nestle's new manufacturing facility, situated in Dagon Seikkan Industrial Zone in Yangon, the country's trade and commerce epicentre.
CEO DHL Supply Chain, Thailand Cluster (Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia), Kevin Burrell, said: 'As the country shapes up to be a bigger player in intra-regional trade, and with the local economy projected to grow by more than 6 per cent next year, we can expect more investment from various international players, who will need our expert local knowledge and executional excellence to optimise their supply chain.'
Chairman and CEO Nestle Indochina, Victor Seah, commented: 'With a wide portfolio of food and beverage products for different consumer segments, it is a top priority that we partner a logistics provider who not only understands our strict adherence to the highest standard of food safety and storage, but can also deploy an array of strategic warehousing options to ensure our products are kept in the best conditions, in order to deliver a seamless customer experience.'
Well-connected by land transport and near the downtown area, the warehouse runs on a fully integrated warehouse management system that can monitor Nestle's inventory, in real time. It is also outfitted with eight loading docks and raised floors, as well as round-the-clock surveillance cameras, to ensure operational efficiency, the company said.
In addition to this new collaboration and the longstanding partnership that has spanned more than two decades, DHL Supply Chain is also managing Nestle's warehouses and supply chain operations in other parts of Asia Pacific such as Australia, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
