cooling technology which is certified by the Indonesian Agency for Meteorology,
Climatology, and Geophysics for best-practice temperature control will give
manufacturers and distributors a storage environment of 2-8°C.
Bonded Warehouse will provide life sciences and healthcare customers a range of
services designed to speed up and streamline movements of sensitive cargo. This

to critical shipment events.

sciences operators to scale up their operations," said Vincent Yong, President
Director, DHL Global Forwarding Indonesia. "This new bonded warehouse is our
