Global food maker appoints new supply chain provider in Myanmar



Global food company Nestlé has appointed DHL Supply Chain (DHL) for contract logistics solutions, to manage warehousing operations for its food products in Myanmar, which include household brands such as Coffee-Mate, MILO and Nescafé.
"We are committed to continue investing in Myanmar's food and beverage industry, to deliver nutritious, high quality and safe products to local consumers under great brands such as Nescafe, Milo, Bear Brand, and Cerelac,” said Victor Seah, chairman and CEO Nestlé Indochina. “With a wide portfolio of food & beverage products for different consumer segments, it is a top priority that we partner a logistics provider who not only understands our strict adherence to the highest standard of food safety and storage but can also deploy an array of strategic warehousing options to ensure our products are kept in the best conditions, to deliver a seamless customer experience.”
Total operations for Nestlé products span 4,000 sqm, which accounts for more than 60% of entire warehouse space in DHL's first multi-user warehouse in the country. The new warehouse is next to Nestlé's new manufacturing facility — situated in Dagon Seikkan Industrial Zone in Yangon, the country's trade and commerce hub. Well-connected by land transport and close to the downtown area, the warehouse 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.
"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," said  Kevin Burrell, CEO DHL Supply Chain, Thailand Cluster (Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia).
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.
