The Smart Digital Hub is scheduled to be finished by next year, according to the report, citing the Industry Minister in Thailand Uttama Savanayana. "Alibaba's big data will connect all logistics systems worldwide quickly and efficiently. Moreover, Alibaba will team up with the Customs Department to digitize the clearance process to support Alibaba's operations," Uttama noted.
