David Watkins, business development and sales manager, at Ontime’s Specialist Transport Division, commented: “As a result of this significant investment, we’re building on the strength of our offering, factoring in even greater efficiencies and the diversity needed to best serve the specialist requirements of our customers.”
“We’re pleased to be recognised by one of the largest global manufacturers in the automotive industry, one demanding nothing less than precision in its supply chain,” said Dhanes Mekintharanggur, APL Logistics’ director responsible for Thailand operations.
Since 2009, APL Logistics has been Nissan Motors’ logistics partner in Thailand handling the supply of locally-produced automotive parts required by the car manufacturer’s Samutprakarn plant. APL Logistics manages 50 trucks making 80 trips in scheduled milk-runs, picking up components from multiple part supplier locations, before consolidating and delivering them just-in-time to the plant for the car assembly process.
