ThaiBev’s distribution operations are managed in alignment with the supply chain management strategy: visibility, synergy, integrated risk management, centralized management, and standardization in line with PASSION 2025. In addition, ThaiBev has established three priorities for distribution management to ensure operational efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and continuous stakeholder engagement throughout the supply chain:
- Strengthen our logistics capability
to increase efficiency and enhance process automation using AI for cost-effectiveness.
- Increase direct-to-consumer
presence to adapt to changing consumer behavior and personalization trends
- Enhance route-to-market
through digitalization to empower traditional trade channels and support future delivery models.
For our outsourced logistics operation, ThaiBev has formalized management
measures to ensure that our outsourced logistics providers operate in compliance with our sustainability standards. They are required to accept ThaiBev’s Supplier Code of Practice and complete sustainability assessments that address ESG issues such as human rights, occupational health and safety, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy efficiency, prior to the start of service provision. This is to ensure that 100% of ThaiBev’s outsourced logistics providers are screened using social and environmental criteria in compliance with the ThaiBev Supplier Code of Practice.
ThaiBev also tracks our outsourced providers’ driving behavior and performance using an online application, with the main focus on safe driving. In addition, to have full visibility of ThaiBev’s ESG impacts, we collect Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions data from these providers under the category “Upstream, and Downstream
Transportation and Distribution”.
