29 September 2022, Bangkok – SCG Logistics Management, Thailand’s leading provider of integrated logistics services, DENSO Sales (Thailand), a global manufacturer and distributor of automotive parts, and Toyota Tsusho (Thailand), a trading company affiliated with Toyota Group, have signed a partnership agreement to raise the standard of Thailand cold chain ecosystem. The agreement was signed by Paitoon Jiranantarat, Managing Director of SCG Logistics Management, Hisaaki Sato, President of DENSO Sales (Thailand), and Shigeki Maeda, Managing Director of Toyota Tsusho Thailand.
The three parties to this partnership have a shared vision of building a sustainable and livable society through developing and improving a technology of the cold chain ecosystem in Thailand. This partnership combines the strengths of the three partners, with DENSO developing the truck refrigerator and Mobile Refrigerator (MRF) system. The compact and lightweight refrigerator can reach temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius using battery power and has a tracking system and traceability. The innovation will be deployed on the cold chain transport vehicles of SCG Logistics, which will distribute goods to customers, and Toyota Tsusho will support the network and logistics system. The new cooling system can continuously regulate the temperature to ensure that the product remains fresh, clean, and of high quality. Additionally, it lessens carbon dioxide emissions caused by dry ice cooling processes. All of this is done to improve Thailand’s cold chain ecosystem.
Paitoon Jiranantarat, Managing Director of SCG Logistics Management, said that the partnership with DENSO and Toyota Tsusho is a significant step in advancing the cold chain ecosystem in Thailand, in line with the goals of SCG Logistics as a logistics provider. We place high importance on maintaining freshness and cleanliness at every stage to promote food safety that complies with international standards, particularly in the food and pharmaceutical industries, where the cold chain ecosystem plays a significant role. A good and standardized cold chain logistics system will assist in minimizing problems with perishable or contaminated goods and preserve the standard-compliant product quality. In the future, we will collaborate to develop more in the linking data from Mobile Refrigerator MRF (Mobile Refrigerator) comes to the Logistics Command Center of SCG Logistics to assist in Double Monitoring and Real Time Alert in case the temperature exceeds the set temperature. This is undertaken to ensure that customers receive fresh, clean, and safe goods and to benefit manufacturers by reducing the cost of perishable goods while expanding the market to more areas.
Hisaaki Sato, President of DENSO Sales (Thailand), said that currently, global warming and food spoilage are now issues facing all countries. DENSO Corporation, a parent company in Japan, recognized the problem and developed a product under DENSO technology, which will address the aforementioned issues, called Mobile Refrigerator (MRF). By forging a partnership with three companies, DENSO is confident it can improve Thailand’s logistics under the “Thailand 4.0” government policy. In addition, customers can rest assured that food and medicines shipped with the Mobile Refrigerator (MRF) system will retain their original quality as if they had just left the manufacturing facility.
Shigeki Maeda, President of Toyota Tsusho Thailand, said that SCG and DENSO have been long-standing partners, not only in Thailand but also in the Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, our vision for carbon neutrality is shared by all three partners. We are pleased to be a part of the signing of this partnership agreement to jointly develop and raise the standard of Thailand’s cold chain ecosystem. Toyota Tsusho is ready to support logistics systems and networks to fulfill our potential and broaden our partnership across Southeast Asia, which is the ultimate goal of all three parties.
