Best Global Logistics offers tailored & innovative “end to end” transportation and logistics services in Thailand and Globally.

Reliable, dedicated and cost efficient.

The post Covid 19 era has affect BGL in terms of the slow down of global demand for ocean freight and air cargo services.

That has to be two matters, hiring of new employee that has Freight and Logistics DNA (not the 9am to 5pm type of work environment) and that of Artificial Intelligence in the way business will be done.  

The primary current challenge is to generate more customers to compensate for the existing customer reduction in their volumes (export & import) as demand dropped globally. Continue to implement smart IT solutions & tools like Co2 measuring for customers. Also managing the payment to BGL be timely of customers and oversea partners.

Actually, much of the same as in 2023, with increase of risks of recessions in multiple countries in the world leading to more bankruptcies. High interest rates. Also Near-Shoring and Re-Shoring of production in Asia.
Decision to accept a job opportunity in Thailand and learn more about culture and life in the country. This was already 20 years ago now.

Melia Koh Samui is a part of the tourism industry. This hotel is a fusion of the stunning maritime environment in southern Thailand. Located on the peaceful Choeng Mon Beach, the hotel provides exceptional facilities, exquisite services, high end gastronomy and a location near all the main attractions on the island.

– Genuine Spanish hospitality.
– Great passion for service.
– Warmth and spontaneity.

Tourism industry businesses have been hit very hard. Our organization during 2023 has recovered all the business lost if compared to 2019 before covid 19. We did by trusting each other, being patient, and seeing obstacles as an opportunity for us to develop our resources and personnel to be better prepared to shine again.

It’s an opportunity to take a look back to our self to realize what we are missing, and these changes will impact our excellency of service, develop ourselves to be above and beyond, and provide flawless service to our guests.

Nowadays one of the biggest challenges we have is bringing back all the people that left the industry during covid-19, I would say bring new and retain talent its one of our priorities.

Hopefully with an increase in our portfolio of Melia Hotels in Thailand. We have 3 hotels: Melia Chiang Mai, Melia Phuket Maikao and Melia Koh Samui. This July we open our fourth hotel Innside Bangkok Sukhumvit.

Thailand is a country rich in natural resources, unique culture and amazing people. If there is an opportunity to manage the hotel here… who could refuse that invitation?

All that is currently happening in the world (covid, international conflicts etc) is affecting every person/company to a certain degree. We will need to be proactive, agile and flexible to adapt to the new situation that is changing constantly.

Our main challenge is currently to adapt our services to the multiple regulatory changes resulting from the pandemic crisis.

Since animals and humans kept eating during COVID, this challenging time has not affected us as much as other industries. Is true that rocketing prices of logistics has been a big handicap.

The biggest impact for us will be the service of our laboratory with an international certification that will allow us to expand worldwide from the analytical services point of view.

The main challenge now are the high prices that we are experiencing due to inflation and we will have to adapt to the needs of the customers and navigate through this situation.

We will start the year with the opening of a production factory that will provide us more flexibility to supply our customers.

We decided to come to Thailand and create our own structure to become the headquarters of the Asia Pacific region. Bangkok is very well located with good communications and also holds one of the biggest fairs of our sector in the region.

Covid-19 totally changes our world. Our challenge during COVID-19 pandemic is supply management of commercialized products. We have to ensure that all patients can continue to receive their prescribed medications smoothly while Siam Bioscience had to take responsibility for Covid-19 vaccine manufacturing during that period. All of our commercialized products are essential medicines. Their demand were increased dramatically during Covid-19 Pandemic.

Moreover our company adapted its capability to serve healthcare need regarding to the pandemic especially during the early era of the pandemic. There was a medical supply shortage even a simple thing like 70% Alcohol (disinfectant). So we produced it and donated to the hospitals/clinics across country . We also collaborated with a government institute to develop COVITECT, the RT-PCR diagnostic kit to help our country in this crisis.

To us, Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet but life has to go on. We are preparing to launch new products.

We can’t stop change. Thus, we have to prepare ourselves to manage it. We are in the VUCA World, Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. These will impact all industry. Proactive thinking, Growth mindset, Adaptation and Ability are fuel to build a winning culture.

Padel is one of the fastest growing sports in the world in terms of players and courts. In Asia the
sport is quite recent and our mision at Padel Asia is to develop Padel in Thailand and
make it as popular as it is worldwide.

Padel Asia is the one stop partner for any Padel need in Thailand. We bring all the material needed to practice the sport, we can build the courts, and of course we teach anybody to play padel or to improve their level. This year we want to start the Thai National championship.

On the one hand it has limited us because we had to stop our plans for the Thai national championships, but on the positive side we have experienced that a lot of people started to play padel as it is a way to be active while other places were closed.

Padel is becoming very popular in Asia. In Thailand we have increased the number of courts available, and also we have more than 3000 people that have played with us. We are pretty sure
that that we will increase the numbers of courts and people in the years to come. Padel is a sport that is easy at the beginning and is very addictive.

We need to manage our growth wisely, we are a very dynamic team, but also our time is limited, we need to prioritize to be sure that we can achieve our desired growth, and we are convinced that we will do it.

We are currently very active. We are building new courts , also we are talking to different stakeholders to find new Padel locations, and also we are starting to organize the Padel national championship.

I came to Thailand to work on the hospitality business, at the same time in Spain I was a semi-professional soccer player, this open me many doors to be involved in sports in Thailand, and Padel came natural , as is a sport that I am passionate about, and I believe will be a very popular sport in this country.
