DKSH pops cork at sustainable distribution centre in Thailand

DKSH, a distributor of speciality chemicals and ingredients, has opened a 11,000 square-metre distribution centre in Bangkok, Thailand.

The newly opened facility introduces a range of innovative and sustainable features to reduce carbon footprint, as well as enhance productivity and safety.

The solutions will include a semi-automated pallet shuttle system, a solar panel installation, energy-efficient LED lighting, HVLS (high-volume, low-speed) fans as well as utilize a zero-emission electric vehicle to transport performance materials products.

The centre features a range of ambient and temperature-controlled warehouses, providing temperatures between 15-25 degrees Celsius.

Advanced systems will ensure the necessary quality assurance for storage of food, personal care, pharmaceutical, and animal feed ingredients as well as a diverse range of specialty chemicals.

The centre will accommodate approximately 14,268 pallets and is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 87.6 tons per year, in accordance with DKSH group-wide sustainability goals of achieving 65% carbon reduction by 2025 and climate neutrality by 2030.

The new facility, located at Frasers Property Logistics Center Bangplee 2, is designed to strengthen DKSH’s distribution network in Thailand and reinforce the company’s position as a leading provider of specialty chemicals and ingredients.

“As the facility is in a strategic area, it enables faster and more cost-effective product delivery to our customers,” said DKSH Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia Performance Materials VP Mathias Greger.

“We also implemented a range of innovations to simplify work for our employees and streamline operations, as well as focus on eco-friendly solutions to foster our Sustainability Framework,” he added.

In a related development, DKSH has completed the acquisition of Terra Firma, a distributor of specialty chemicals in North America.

“The successful closing of the Terra Firma deal is another step towards building a global distribution platform for speciality chemicals and ingredients,” said DKSH CEO Stefan Butz.
