Just started - saw the links form a couple of navigation apps and came to have a look. Started with placing the business address and tighening up a couple of roads to the satellite background.

Big big question - there are line types for a lot of roads, except, notably, Industrial estates . . . Get this added so that we can classify more easily what is at a location by the type of road it is . . .

Location: Thanon Chaloem Phrakiat Ratchakan Thi 9, Prawet District, Bangkok, 10250, Thailand

This would be the badly named "Unclassified Road" which should be "Road" or similar generic term.

You can use the Land Use classification for the area to designate it as industrial.

Yep, Stalfur is right. Just to be clear: you just use a generic road for the road, but then separately you draw an area that goes around the whole industrial estate (the roads, the buildings, etc) and mark that as landuse=industrial

Be careful, a road tagged "highway=unclassifed" is not the same as one tagged "highway=road", the former is a minor road (which is a better name) the latter a road of undefined characteristics which will not be used by routers.

In general industrial estates will consist of a network of highway=unclassified and highway=service. Major feeder roads into the estates might be highway=tertiary. It is worth remembering that the OSM highway tags reflect a functional classification: if roads are very wide in an industrial estate to accommodate trucks, but they only lead to a couple of warehouses, they are still service roads.
