Kerry's Singapore unit to open rail-linked inland ports at Yangon, Mandalay

HONG KONG's Kerry Logistics Network has announced that its unit, KLN (Singapore) Pte Ltd, will open railway-linked inland ports in Yangon and Mandalay. 

The awarding ceremony organised by the state-owned Myanma Railways under the auspices of the Ministry of Rail Transportation of Myanmar was held at the Sule Shangri-la Hotel, Yangon.

In a bid to seize new opportunities for cross-border trade upon entering the ASEAN Economic Community, the government of Myanmar is committed to developing the rail freight. 

The inland ports will serve as container and cargo terminals linked by railway to major routes in the country.

They will also serve as hubs for the exporters, importers and domestic logistics service providers of cargoes in and out of Yangon and Thilawa Ports, as well as cross-border freight links with China and Thailand.

"We are pleased to be offered the opportunity to contribute our expertise in terminal logistics operations to benefit the development of Myanmar," said Kerry chairman George Yeo. 

"Railway transportation is an essential backbone in support of Myanmar's economic development, both within the country and with nearby regions," he said. 

Mr Yeo said that Kerry Logistics' goal is to strengthen the linkage among countries in the region and seek accelerated growth by developing an integrated Greater Mekong Region platform covering Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos. 

"The inland ports in Yangon and Mandalay form a vital part in pursuing such an integration," he said. 

With its expertise in terminal logistics, strong foothold and experience in the ASEAN region, and commitment to the development of Myanmar, Kerry Logistics said it will work in close cooperation with the Ministry of Rail Transportation.
