“K” line: Commissioning of the new general dry storage facility in Bangkok

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” LINE) is pleased to announce that its Thailand-based group company, K LINE CONTAINER SERVICE (THAILAND) LTD. (KCST) starts operating a new warehouse in Bangkok’s Bang Na district on April 1st. The new warehouse is in a prime location 30km from downtown Bangkok, the largest consumption area in Thailand. It is designed to handle e-commerce products and can ship products faster per item instead of shipping products per pallet or per box as before. For this purpose, multi-storey shelves were installed, which take advantage of the 15 meter high ceiling. With the installation of a 15 meter wide canopy that can store a variety of products in small quantities, the warehouse has been fully equipped with all-weather cargo entry and exit. In addition, KCST has obtained four ISO certifications (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and ISO 28000) for its existing warehouses and plans to obtain these same certifications for the new warehouse within the year.
