Im­prov­ing Thai­land­myan­mar trade

Maritime Gateway - - South Asia News -

A pi­lot pro­ject which uses semi-trailer swap­ping with bonded cargo has halved the time needed to reach Thi­lawa SEZ from Thai­land. Send­ing a con­tainer from Panom­sarakarm in Thai­land to Thi­lawa SEZ in Myan­mar takes 2.5 days, whereas con­ven­tional lo­gis­tics needs 4-5 days and ocean freight takes 3 weeks. The scheme rep­re­sents a step to­wards ef­fi­cient and bar­rier-free trade be­tween Mae-sot and Myawaddy, mak­ing cross­bor­der lo­gis­tics easy.
