DHL Supply Chain to manage Nestle’s entire warehousing operations in Myanmar
Nestlé, the world’s largest food company, has tapped logistics firm DHL Supply Chain (DHL) to manage its warehousing operations for its food products in Myanmar, which include household brands such as Coffee mate®, MILO® and Nescafé®.
Total operations for Nestlé products spans 4,000 square meters, which accounts for more than 60 percent of total warehouse space in DHL’s first multi-user warehouse in the country.
The recently-unveiled warehouse is conveniently located next to Nestlé’s new manufacturing facility, situated in Dagon Seikkan Industrial Zone in Yangon, the country’s trade and commerce epicenter.
“Myanmar is an exciting market to be in, and we have been very successful in ensuring that our capabilities are customized to meet our customers’ needs, enabling them to grow their business footprint here,” Kevin Burrell, CEO DHL Supply Chain, Thailand Cluster (Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia) 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 optimize their supply chain,” he added.
In addition to this new collaboration and the longstanding partnership that has spanned more than two decades, DHL Supply Chain is also managing Nestlé’s warehouses and supply chain operations in other parts of Asia Pacific such as Australia, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
