Yusen Logistics launches Halal warehouse operation in Laem Chabang.

Yusen Logistics (Thailand) Co.,Ltd. obtained halal certification from the Central Islamic Council of Thailand (CICOT), a halal certification board on April 8. With this certification, we are the first halal-certified warehousing and logistics provider in Thailand.

Thailand is seeing increasing production and export of halal foods and products. Despite this growing interest in halal products, there were no warehouses with halal certification in Thailand. Taking into account the growth potential of the market for halal products as well as future logistics demands, we decided to obtain halal certification.

The certified warehouse is Yusen Laemchabang Logistics Center 1 (YLLC1) Group 2 Warehouse # 3, located approximately 20 kilometers from Laem Chabang Port. Part of the warehouse space and truck entrance and exit has been renovated to halal specifications. The halal space is separated by sheets, and there is a special-purpose handwashing area. Our staff trained in correct handling methods carry out operations following these procedures, using halal-only handlifts and pallets within this area.

 

In April 2015, Yusen Logistics was the first Japanese logistics provider in Malaysia to acquire halal certification for both transport and warehousing operations. We have since offered a halal logistics service using trucks and warehouses. Now, with our first halal certification in Thailand, we will continue to develop our global halal logistics services, working together with Malaysia and delivering supply chain logistics that meet customer needs as supply chain logistics provider offering halal logistics in Thailand.
