EV Cargo, a leading global freight forwarding, supply chain and technology company, is continuing its expansion across Southeast Asia with the opening of its own operations in Thailand.
The EV Cargo office located in the capital Bangkok provides a comprehensive range of air, sea and road freight services, contract logistics and customs brokerage for its many customers requiring service to and from Thailand, all powered by EV Cargo people and systems. The cargo handling facilities in Bangkok enable buyer’s consolidation, multi-country consolidation and LCL groupage services.
Headed by Pong Asvaraksh, Managing Director EV Cargo Thailand, the new operation in Thailand will be fully integrated into EV Cargo’s global logistics execution platform, which manages the movement by air, sea and road of over $60 billion of merchandise between 2,400 country pairs every year.
As one of the world’s fastest growing economic regions and logistics markets, as well as being an important sourcing origin for retailers and consumer goods brands, Southeast Asia represents a key strategic market for EV Cargo. As such, the company has been steadily expanding its capability and capacity across the region with new offices and logistics facilities in Cambodia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, to meet the rapidly evolving needs of customers, and ensuring EV Cargo people and systems door to door for all Southeast Asia shipments.
“As a market, Thailand offers exciting growth opportunities for EV Cargo and our expanded presence and capability in the country will enable us to capitalise on the opportunities here to deliver our ambitious growth plans, it was the natural next step in our Southeast Asia expansion programme,” said Justin Bentley, EV Cargo Vice President, Southeast Asia.
“Like many markets in Southeast Asia, Thailand has benefitted from companies diversifying their sourcing strategies away from relying solely on China and we are talking to our customers every day about how we can help to support their developing sourcing and supply chain operations in Thailand and across the region.”
