Schenker, a company founded 1872 by Gottfried Schenker in Vienna, Austria, is now one of the world’s largest freight forwarding and logistics companies. Roughly 35,000 employees in 1,100 offices throughout the continents take care of the full service range of the group. Since 1974 Schenker has been registered as a company in Thailand, replacing a delegation office which had existed since 1966. They work from a network of offices in Bangkok Klongtoey, Bangkok Airport, Laem Chabang, Korat, Hat Yai and of course from the new premises in Chiang Mai, with experienced and dependable personnel in all locations.

Management and staff celebrate in front of the new Schenker office.

The huge new office in Chiang Mai makes it a lot easier to offer door-to-door international air and sea consolidation services; customs clearance; warehousing and distribution; turnkey project logistics; household removals and international exhibition transport.

Aree Veranitinant, the manager of Schenker Chiang Mai, is proud to be supported by a state-of-the-art international computer network which offers rapid information about the whereabouts of shipments at any time.

Aree, speaking with Chiangmai Mail, reconfirmed the services that Schenker offers, which include packing, warehousing, domestic transportation, air freight & ocean freight, consolidations, customs clearance, trucking and removals.
