Strategic Alliance between CloudRoom & JWD Store It!
This partnership significantly marks a new frontier of the on-demand storage service.

Storage service will no longer be limited to those who have a large number of items, yet to include people who have less gadgets to store and still have the need of storage service to keep their belongings. Due to the limited living space in high-rise condominiums of the metropolis like Bangkok in particular, this trend is likely to be a practical solution for the new generation in this era.
CloudRoom enables a seamless experience to the users to do all the process at home carefree from a box delivery to an item pick-up request.
Mr.Daiki Ito, Managing Director of a2network (Thailand) Co., Ltd. mentioned that CloudRoom was launched proactively in the Thai market in the first quarter of 2021. The majority of customers were Japanese expatriates who reside in Bangkok.

The result of the use of storage service was overall satisfactory in the year 2021 and the number of customers has been increasing in a stable manner.”
“It is truly an honor for the company to be partnering with JWD Store It!,” Ito stated further. CloudRoom will be able to manage to break into the Thai market even more by the fact that JWD Store It! has been the key player in a logistic and storage industry of the market in Thailand.

This allows JWD Store It! to expand its customer base by a brand-new user experience and service without investing further on the aspect of technology and logistic.
