Zenith Global upgrades Vietnam warehousing
Staff Staff -- Casual Living, April 8, 2010
Zenith Global Logistics continues to expand its home furnishings warehousing and distribution capabilities in Asia by adding humidity-controlled warehousing in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
“The addition of this warehousing in Vietnam is simply another example of our responsiveness to the requests and business needs of our customers, both domestically and internationally,” said Steve Wolfe, VP of Zenith Global. “Vietnam is an important strategic location for a number of our customers, which mirrors the growing amount of sourcing that’s being done in that country. Our customers also require a humidity-controlled environment to ensure proper moisture levels are maintained for wood products housed at this location, which has a total capacity of 226,000 square feet.”
Zenith Global customers can mix products from this facility and ship in either full, split or less-than-container loads. “When used in conjunction with our split container program and our U.S. domestic distribution network, this warehouse means customers can literally purchase as little as one item and pay a single through-price, FOB Ho Chi Minh City,” Wolfe said.
“In the end, our mission is to put logistics solutions in place that make it simple and efficient for customers to conduct, and often build, their businesses, even in this challenging economy,” he added. “Vietnam is simply an extension of the dozens of ports throughout Asia, the Pacific Rim and Europe, where we offer the same diverse range of container programs. With the innovative solutions provided by Zenith Global, a customer can design and implement logistics solutions specific to their business model. With the capabilities now available in supply chain logistics from IT to on-the-ground execution, any model is possible.”
Vietnam warehousing follows a series of recent international expansion announcements for Zenith Global, including a partnership with CV International and Hecny Group for global supply chain logistics services, including freight forwarding, air freight, origin booking services and customs clearance as well as a its corporate alliance with Hong Kong-based integrated distribution services provider IDS Group, expanding its warehousing, logistics and transportation services to multiple key ports throughout Asia.
Following these initiatives, Zenith Global appointed a new general manager of business development in Asia. It also formed a partnership with Hamburg-based Theodor Kroeger GmbH – International Distributions & Logistics, a leading European furniture distribution company, to provide distribution services, including in-home delivery, throughout Europe and beyond.
