Port Overview

Yangon port is divided into two ports. The largest is the Myanmar International Terminal Thilawa, used mostly for RORO ships for transport of cars. This port is located 16 km from Yangon downtown and 16km from Yangon river bay and next to the Thilawa Special Economic Zone developed by a Japanese Joint-venture company. The International Terminal Thilawa consists of 2 terminals and 6 wharfs:

(1)  MITT (Myanmar International Terminal Thilawa)

(2)  MIPL (Myanmar Integrated Port Limited)

The other is the old Yangon port area, which covers 4 terminals and 15 wharfs. Most general cargo vessels use Myanmar Industrial Port (MIP) and Asia World Port terminal (AWP) because they are located close to downtown at 32km from the Yangon river bay. The old Yangon Port area covers the following 4 terminals and 15 wharfs:

(3)  Bo Aung Kyaw Street Wharf (BAK)

(4)  Myanmar Industrial Port (MIP).

(5)  Asia World Port Terminal (AWPT)

(6)  Sule Pagoda Wharf (SPW)

Description and Contacts of Key Companies

It has been proved to be very difficult to get information about the port authorities and port customs authority’s names. Every officer is rotated on a two months basis and therefore not willing to provide contact name, which make sense as the person will most likely not be there. There is also a very big concern about taking photos inside the port. The authorisation request to take few photographs of any sites was kindly turned down by the special port military agent present at the spot.

Myanmar International Terminal Thilawa (MITT) 

Port Overview

MITT is Myanmar’s first purpose-built, multi-purpose international container port. Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH), which developed the facilities, has managed MITT since 1998. MITT is located at Thilawa 25 km for downtown Yangon, close to mouth of the Yangon River, and adjacent to the Special Industrial Zone, Thanlyin-Kyauktan. Most container traffic in Myanmar is handled by AWPT and MIP ports, not by MITT, because these ports are located closer to downtown Yangon and businesses active in Bayint Naung Compound, Hlaing Thar Yar Industrial Zone.

MITT is the only port in Myanmar that can handle RORO (Roll-on Roll-off) car carriers.
