Thailand – Bolloré Logistics has opened yesterday SMILE HUB, its brand-new warehouse and distribution centre in Thailand. Mr Hubert Colaris, Economic Counsellor of the French Embassy to Thailand, honoured the event with his presence. Also present were the management teams of Bolloré Logistics and Frasers Property Industrial Thailand (FPIT), including Mr Fabricio Protti, Deputy Managing Director of the Bolloré Group, Mr Thierry Ehrenbogen, CEO of Bolloré Logistics, and Mr Sopon Racharaksa, CEO of FPIT.
SMILE HUB is situated in Bangplee, near Bangkok, and is 23 kilometres away from Suvarnabhumi International Airport with good access to infrastructure and transport links. With an area of 11,000 m², it was designed by FPIT to meet the growing needs of the perfume & cosmetics and luxury sectors in Thailand and in the region as a whole.
The modern, environmentally friendly new hub was built in line with Bolloré Logistics' corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitments, which are formalised in its Powering Sustainable Logistics programme. It includes environmentally friendly features such as a smart lighting system, solar panels, and water-saving equipment. By the end of 2022, SMILE HUB will also be awarded LEED Gold certification, becoming one of the first warehouses in Thailand to do so.
 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a globally recognised environmental label for building, developed by the US Green Building Council. (https://www.usgbc.org/leed)
