In order to support Auchan Retail’s development plan in Vietnam, FM Logistic has launched a 5,000 sq m tri-temperature logistics site in the town of Bắc Ninh, 20 km from Hanoï. This site will supply all Auchan stores in the northern half of the country (hypermarkets, supermarkets, local shops).

Plans to open a site in Ho Chi Minh City in 2018 are underway for other FM Logistic Group customers.

“Setting up a modern logistics system will allow us to have products more readily available in our stores and guarantee a high-quality cold chain” states Christian Autié, Efficiency Director of Auchan Retail in Vietnam.

“In line with group strategy, our objective is to become one of the leading logistics providers on the Vietnamese market by 2020 and to develop pooling so that we can create value for our customers” stated Stéphane Descarpentries, Director of Operations in Asia for FM Logistic.

FM Logistic intends to provide a differentiating solution in the Vietnamese market by developing its multi-client model and bringing flexible and secure solutions to its customers. The first FM-standard multi-client platform is planned for 2019 in Hanoï with up to 50,000 sq m of warehousing space.
