Abstract: JWD InfoLogistics Co. Ltd. was established to offer services in integrated logistics solution, warehousing, distribution, freight forwarding, and value added services worldwide. JWD operates as either a Lead Logistics Provider or as the provider of individual or multiple-components of our clients' supply chain service needs from taking responsibility for inbound/outbound transportation, customs clearance, inventory and warehouse management, the provision of a full range of ancillary and co-packing services, and distribution to customers both overseas and throughout Thailand and Indo-China, all to the highest standards of service at the lowest cost possible. Owing to the rapid increase in shipping movements through the seaport (i.e., Laem Chabang seaport, Chonburi, Thailand), the expansion of industrial activities has placed increasing demands on the development of free zone warehouse for dangerous goods. JWD entered into an agreement with the Port Authority of Thailand to have the exclusive right to operate, maintain, and carry out dangerous goods storage located at Laem Chabang seaport for a given number of years. To take advantage of hazardous segregation and classified cargo consolidation both imported and exported dangerous goods, JWD planned to develop its free zone warehouse for dangerous goods to gain business competitiveness. Free zone or free economic zones is designated areas where companies are taxed very lightly or not at all to encourage development. Therefore, this study highlighted the feasibility of the project using logistics and marketing analysis to investigate how the development would be plausible.
