SPAR picks DHL to support Thailand growth

SPAR International is to partner with DHL Supply Chain and the Bangchak Retail Company to establish up to 300 new convenience stores in Thailand by the end of 2020.

DHL Supply Chain will support the development of the network with transport, distribution and warehousing services across Thailand, with BCR providing the front-end store infrastructure.

SPAR’s supply chain will currently use the DHL Bangna Logistics Campus for ambient warehousing and distribution; and its Klong Prapa warehouse for handling frozen goods.

“To support SPAR Thailand in delivering SPAR’s global reputation for freshness, choice, quality, and service, we knew we needed a logistics partner with proven experience in maintaining world-class food retail supply chains,” said Tom Rose, head of operations at SPAR International.

“Since working with DHL, they have impressed SPAR with the smoothness and visibility of its third-party logistics services, leaving us in no doubt that this partnership will help SPAR reach its sizable ambitions for growth in the Kingdom.”
