DHL launches largest express facility in Myanmar

DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider, has launched the largest express facility in Myanmar, set to support the nation’s fast-growing economy which is forecast to rise by 8.5% in 2016, the company said in a statement.

Located in Yangon and occupying over 50,000 square feet of land with a built-up area of 32,500 square feet, the facility’s expansive handling capacity is set to support Myanmar’s strong import and domestic demand.

“DHL launched this facility to cater to Myanmar’s increasing logistics needs, driven by growth sectors such as infrastructure, oil and gas and garment industries. It is designed to handle massive shipment volumes expected over the next decade – to the year 2025 and beyond,” said Mark Ong, Country Manager for Myanmar, DHL Express. “The new service centre is located close to the airport – which enables us to ensure faster deliveries for more customers, connecting them to our global network of over 220 countries and territories worldwide and our global standards of service and quality.”

The facility contains key features that accelerate and enhance service quality for customers. Its conveyor belt system, spanning more than 280 feet and running throughout the centre, allows goods to be directly loaded into courier vans and rapidly distributed. High security and full visibility of the shipping process is another critical component of the service centre. Parcels are continuously monitored by an X-ray machine, in addition to over 30 CCTV cameras located throughout the premises.

“Strengthened by the dismantling of trade barriers, continued economic reforms and foreign direct investment, Myanmar – with its resource-rich land and strategic geographic location at the intersection of China and India – is full of untapped potential,” said Yasmin Aladad Khan, Executive Vice President of Commercial for Asia Pacific and Managing Director of Emerging Markets, DHL Express. “As Myanmar continues to develop, the rapid growth of Myanmar’s exports and imports in the fiscal year ending March 2016 – by 12% to US$12.5 billion and 21% to US$16.6 billion respectively, will open up a myriad of opportunities within the region . The opening of this facility reinforces DHL’s commitment to logistics excellence in the region. We look forward to contributing significantly to this crucial growth phase of the nation.”

The new facility is the latest enhancement to the DHL Express Myanmar network, which includes four service points, three service centres and a fleet of over 30 vehicles. DHL Express has been operating in Myanmar for over 30 years.--MIZZIMA

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
