This Assignment is a market study for TCL services sector in Thailand. TCL services would include transportation/storage/distribution, together with other value-added services, of food/perishable products in a temperature-controlled environment.
The main objectives of the Assignment are to:
i. determine the existing and future demand and supply for TCL services along the entire value chain for several sub sectors requiring such services such as agribusiness, supermarkets, dairy, meats, quick foods, seafood, pharmaceuticals etc. and the extent of inhouse versus independent TCL service providers (3PL players) in this space
ii. carry out a comprehensive analysis of the margin structure and economics of the value chain
iii. determine the key constraints and growth drivers for these services as well as for increased outsourcing of such services to 3PL players, and
iv. recommend strategies which could be followed for establishing a new TCL service operation in Thailand, especially private sector involvement and help IFC identify leading operators in this space, that may be candidates for potential financing to support their growth plans.
