Transport and logistics company, Toll Group, has a joint venture business strategically situated in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) of Thailand that offers warehousing, transport and freight solutions.
The local government, according to Toll, is investing in an integrated infrastructure development plan to build the infrastructure linking industry hubs within Thailand and connecting across borders with its surrounding countries.
The plan, which is being developed over a few years, will reportedly enhance, sea, air and land linkways including the upgrading of the existing U-Tapao International Airport, the Map Ta Phut Industrial Port and the new double track railway.
Supporting global customers from Sattahip and Songklah, Toll’s joint venture, Oil-Tex, will be able to manage goods moving into and out of Thailand via these new sea and air connections.
With 4,000 days free of safety incidents, Toll’s Oil-Tex team have been maintaining an exemplary safety record while managing berth and wharfing activities for long-term oil and gas customers.
“We provide ship agency services to ships from all around the world,” said George Yeo who manages the Oil-Tex business. “We refuel them, unload their vessels and conduct ship channelling activities for both offshore and navy ships. Some more recent activities were for the Singapore and Sri Lankan navy ships.”
Aside from Oil-Tex, Toll has a total of 15 sites across Thailand offering a wide range of services, including linehaul and delivery to stores, to bring products to Thai communities efficiently and safely.
Businesses can expect time, cost and connectivity efficiencies as they leverage on the EEC through Toll.
“Our team of 50 in Oil-Tex and the wider 800 across Thailand are poised to support our customers with their strategy for this geography”, said Toll Group Regional General Manager for Southeast Asia, Dean Jones.
