PRELIMINARY STUDY ON TAK’S INDUSTRIAL ESTATE’S DISTRIBUTION CENTER
Sakgasem Ramingwong, Salinee Santiteerakul
Chiang Mai University (CMU) was assigned by Tak to study the feasibility on
establishing Tak’s industrial estate. The study has reached its conclusion where the
industrial estate is barely feasible unless the special benefits and legal privilege are
provided. One of the practical exercises is an establishment of the distribution center
whereas it was initially exclusive from the study.
Although it is undoubtful if the distribution center is beneficial, the center’s,
itself, feasibility is unclear. Therefore, it is the aim of the paper to present the
preliminary assessment on the issue. However, it must be noted that the results and a
conclusion presented in the paper is only the preliminary assessment where the
marketing, engineering, finance and management perspectives are addressed (follow the
feasibility study procedure), however in an initial scale.
The study leads to a conclusion that Tak’s industrial estate’s distribution center
is preliminarily feasible, however within assumptions and conditions applied. The
results here should then be supportive to a top-management decision, should a full-scale
feasibility study on the distribution center be conducted to complete the requirements.
