Myanmar Logistics Services

 “Myanmar’s domestic and international connectivity are inadequate for its logistics requirements for the production of goods and the movement of people, and are constraining its potential to be a hub for trading goods and services between Southeast Asia and South and East Asia (Htun et al. 2011). Transport links to neighboring countries are both limited and substandard.”

The Ministry of Transport is expected to start by early 2015 implementation of a 30-year National Transport Development Master Plan for Myanmar. The plan adopts a corridor-based transport infrastructure development approach, based on four priority corridors: Central North-South (Yangon-Nay Pyi Taw-Mandalay, East-West (Yangon-Hpa An-Myawaddy), Northern Corridor (Mandalay-Muse) and Western North-South Corridor (Yangon- Pyay-Magway). The plan provides for substantial investment in transport infrastructure, improving multi-modal connectivity and following market-oriented mechanisms in providing transport services.

Transport by waterway and railway are dominated by the state-owned enterprises Inland Water Transport (IWT) and Myanma Railways, although also several small scale operators are available for waterways. There is a sizable private sector for the provision of road transport, logistics, freight forwarding, fuel and telecommunications.
