PRESS RELEASE

September 10, 2015: Panalpina has opened its first office in Yangon for ocean and air shipments declaring "a new era is dawning in Myanmar after the establishment of a civilian government in 2011".

The 3PL says as economic sanctions against Myanmar have been eased, international trade has escalated, especially imports from other Asian countries and Europe. Trade with China is growing, with new direct shipping services having been launched between Shanghai and Yangon.

Myanmar Yangon"Panalpina has worked with customers in Myanmar for many years through dedicated agents," says Thorsten Harenberg, country manager for Panalpina Myanmar. "We have been grateful for their support, but having our own team on the ground here in Yangon will allow us to work more closely with and better meet the needs of our customers during this exciting time of investment and development."

In the south of the country, Myanmar plans to develop Dawei into a deep-sea port and special economic zone. Combined with new overland links into Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, this project could establish an attractive multimodal trade corridor between South East Asia and India. The lack of infrastructure remains a challenge though for this country with a population of 51 million; the demand for upgrading is huge.

For Panalpina, the largest growth opportunities are in telecommunications, manufacturing, oil and gas, as well as capital projects. Apart from transport infrastructure, power plants, refineries and gas terminals need to be built. Myanmar has vast offshore natural gas reserves and is rich with oil deposits and other natural resources such as gemstones and minerals.

"We expect our Energy Solutions team to be heavily involved, as the country develops in the coming years," says Harenberg. "In the short term, both air and ocean imports will be driving the business. Exports will be limited until the country develops a viable manufacturing industry. Further down the road we also intend to offer value-added logistics services."
