Expansion in Asia Continues: Thailand Branch Opens

Worldwide Logistics Group continues its expansion into Asia and announces the opening of Worldwide Logistics Group – Thailand.

The Thailand office is strategically located in Bangkok near the Suvarnabhumi Airport and Laem Chabang Seaport. It marks the company’s 10th office in Asia, the 38th branch worldwide and the 12th new branch opening this year.

Worldwide Logistics Group is a fully integrated logistics service provider. The new location in Thailand will offer the company’s complete logistics services with a strong focus on air freight, sea freight and border services, including customs clearance and domestic truck services.

With offices already located in countries surrounding Thailand including China, Cambodia and Vietnam, expanding to Bangkok allows Worldwide Logistics Group to better service its customers who rely on resources from Asia.

Managing multiple offices strategically positioned throughout Asia provides Worldwide Logistics Group robust options to source and move goods.

“We’ve seen a clear trend toward customers diversifying their sourcing programs in order to secure more reliability, competitive pricing and reduced risk,” explained Willy Fong, managing director for Worldwide Logistics Group – Asia.

As with all expansions, the decision to open a branch in Thailand was customer driven. “Our focus is customer experience and expectations, and we’re looking forward to business development as a one-stop service provider,” said Worapan Visedsak, general manager of the Thailand office.

Visedsak is a veteran in the logistics industry with more than 17 years of experience in freight forwarding, particularly in ocean import and export. Before joining Worldwide Logistics Group she worked with DB Schenker – Laem Chabang Branch as a fourth party logistics (4PL) control tower manager leading end-to-end logistics for fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) customers.

Visedsak said that ensuring delivery of cargo during the Covid pandemic sharpened her skills and strengthened her ability to work under unfavorable conditions. “I helped leading FMCG customers deliver their cargo under Covid pandemic conditions so I am confident my background will help move shipments under any circumstance,” she explained.

Managing customer success is one of the primary goals of the company and opening additional branches is an efficient way to ensure customers have all the resources they need.

“Customer-driven expansion is a growth engine for our company as well as the fastest way for our customers to achieve their outcomes,” explained Joe Monaghan, CEO and president of Worldwide Logistics Group. “Through customer-driven growth, we can expand in a predictable, scalable way.”
