Bangkok: The logistics industry in Southeast Asia is going through significant changes. The opening of “East and West Economic corridor,” that covers the Indo-China Peninsula and the desire for cost reduction through efficiency in logistics are some of the driving forces behind the change.
A logistics industry exhibition – “TILOG Logistics 2018” was held in Bangkok with the aim of connecting companies in Southeast Asia.
Daifuku – a Japanese company developing advanced logistic systems, automated storage and retrieval systems around the world presented solutions to manufacturers for issues such as building automated sorting technologies, factory line automation systems in automotive plants and home delivery warehouses.
Daifuku’s technology has contributed to the development of Japan’s industries and lifestyles, helping automotive manufacturing industries and contributing to the rapid increase in automatic sorting of deliveries by e-commerce.
A Daifuku representative said, “Daifuku Thailand can be expanded and used as a base for ASEAN regions. We are focusing not only on Thailand but also on other countries such as Vietnam and Myanmar.”
“We have introduced Virtual Reality technology that is used in automatic allocation system. When scale is huge, the process of automatic sorting technology can be seen from various angles,” he added.
A visitor at the exhibition said, “The VR system has showed me a clear image and it is very easy to understand about stored products and distribution to other places. ASEAN countries are witnessing rapid surge in personal delivery through online shopping. It is becoming necessary to have accurate distribution technology and this can be achieved by automation.”
