DHL Supply Chain signs contract with Nestlé
Nestlé has appointed DHL Supply Chain to manage warehousing operations for its food products in Myanmar, which include household brands such as Coffee mate, Milo and Nescafé. Total operations for Nestlé products span 4,000 sqm, accounting for more than 60% of the total cargo handling 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 the Dagon Seikkan industrial zone in Yangon. The hub runs on a fully integrated warehouse management system that can monitor Nestlé's inventory in real time. It is also outfitted with eight loading docks and raised floors, as well as round-the-clock surveillance cameras, to ensure operational efficiency.
Kevin Burrell, CEO DHL Supply Chain, Thailand cluster (Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia) said: "Myanmar is an exciting market to be in, and we have been very successful in ensuring that our capabilities are customised to meet our customers' needs, enabling them to grow their business footprint here."
