Port Overview

The Port of Yangon is the main port of Myanmar that handles approximately 90% of import and export activities in the country. The average tidal range is around 19 feet (5.85m) at sprint tide and 8.4 feet (2.5m) at neap tide. Waves within the Yangon river normally do not hinder marine operations, even at the river mouth point, wave conditions are rarely rough with less than 2-meter height. Current velocity ranges between 4 to 6 knots during springtime. Pilotage is compulsory for vessels above 200 GRT. Navigation is provided from the offshore fixed Pilot station located 20 nautical miles from Yangon, which can handle traffic of around 600 vessels every month. Currently, the port has capacity for vessels of up to 15,000 –20,000 DWT and works are scheduled to increase the port’s capacity for vessels up to 35,000 DWT.

There are two restricted bars along the approached channel:
(1) Inner Bar (near Yangon Port at Monkey Point)
(2) Outer Bar (at the mouth of the River)

Crossing both the inner and outer bar is timed for high tide to allow sufficient depth. Since the channel width at Monkey Point is rather limited at 100 meters, navigation requires close attention.

The Port of Yangon maintain 2 shifts. Day shift is from 08:00 hours to 16:00 hours. Night shift is from 20:00 hours to 04:00 hours. Overtime works is available on request for periods between shift hours. It takes a week to discharge cargo from port since arrive if all require document (such as Shipping documents and government approve letter) are complete. Yangon Port is free from congested, generally. But all port located in Yangon has pros and cons. 

For more information please see 1.3 Myanmar Customs Information. 


Yangon port is divided into two ports. The largest is the Myanmar International Terminal Thilawa, used mostly for RORO ships for transporting cars from nearby automotive factories. This port is located 16 km from Yangon downtown and river bay. It is strategically located 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 and accessible to vessels of 200 m LOA, 20000 DWT, 9 m Draft: The current traffic level at MITT does not pose congestion risk as yet with vacant container yard space available.. However, since MITT is located outside of Yangon, transport cost and longer travel distance Should be expected.

(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 and accessible to vessels of 167m LOA, 9m Draft, 15000 DWT:

(3)  Bo Aung Kyaw Street Wharf (BAK)

(4)  Myanmar Industrial Port (MIP).

(5)  Asia World Port Terminal (AWPT)

(6)  Sule Pagoda Wharf (SPW)

 

Regarding the coastal and inland water transport cargo and passenger are handled from downtown domestic terminal such as Lamadaw, Pansodan, and Botathaung. Especially, Pansodan and Botathaung are where passenger transport is the major operation are situated very close to the city area. But Lamadaw handle almost all domestic cargo though cargo handling area is quite narrow.

Further to the above-mentioned ports, there are two dry ports available in Ywar Thar Gyi in Yangon region and Myit Nge in Mandalay region built by Resources Group Logistics Co., Ltd. It was officially opened in November 2018 to boost logistics capabilities in country with a rail line operated by Myanma Railways. The dry ports are intended to ease traffic jam between ports in Yangon and Thilawa SEZ and to reduce transportation cost. It is equipped with customs inspections and 24-hour services with freight charges and taxes set by Myanmar Railways. The loop-train service runs on a weekly basis with 15-27 carriages between the 2 ports. Carriage capacity is around 33 metric tons.

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.
