DHL to support Spar International’s Thailand expansion

Date : 28 June 2017

DHL Supply Chain is to provide logistics and warehousing solutions to Spar Thailand.

300 new stores

Spar International has announced plans to open up to 300 new convenience stores in Thailand by the end of 2020. To support the expansion, Spar has chosen DHL to provide end-to-end transport, distribution and warehousing services across Thailand, along with BCR for the retailer’s front-end store infrastructure.

Optimising productivity

Spar will use two Bangkok DHL facilities for warehousing and distribution: Bang Na for ambient goods, and Klong Prapa for frozen. Both warehouses will use the WMOS warehouse management platform in order to optimise inventory accuracy and productivity.

Benefiting from proven experience

“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. “DHL’s track record in sustaining fast-growing food retailers, both in Thailand and other markets worldwide, gave us the confidence to use their infrastructure as the foundation of our local supply chain.”
