Asia Pacific’s leading pallet pooling service provider, Loscam announces their sixth year partnership with Lion Corporation Thailand, a prominent player in the FMCG industry.

Commenting on the impact Loscam has made to Lion’s supply chain operations, Mr Samarn Siasakul, Inventory System Development Supervisor for Lion Corporation said that the Loscam network has been of great assistance in enabling the exchangeability of pallets.

Delivering their products widely to customers and partners such as Big C, Tesco Lotus and KRS, Lion believes Loscam pallets have helped boost the efficiency of their supply chains. The pallets are simply exchanged at each delivery point, thereby reducing goods handling and loading time for Lion.

Lion also appreciates the fact that there are ‘no pallet shortages’. Mr Samarn explains that Loscam has the capability to issue pallets within just two days, guaranteeing that Lion’s production line will always run smoothly. Additionally, the standardisation of pallets ensures that stacking is uniform and secure.

According to Mr Samarn, there is no need to spend a lot on purchasing pallets, while expenses for administration and maintenance are transferred to Loscam.

Lion Corporation continues to improve its logistics efficacy including warehouse and transportation management in order to maintain its competitive advantages, especially in a post-AEC environment.

Elaborating on their long term plans, Mr Samarn said that Lion plans to have one main warehouse supporting international and domestic outbound operations, with at least 40,000 pallets. Lion’s focus for 2015 is on fostering greater cooperation of logistics development among their overseas affiliates, such as Lion Corporation in Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Indonesia.
