Expanding in Myanmar
Apart from our expansion plans in Thailand, DB Schenker in Thailand is also strongly committed to growing its service offerings in Laos and Myanmar. After successfully establishing a legal entity in Laos, the focus to expand its service offering in Myanmar is a must, where DB Schenker has been present for the last 12 years through its own branch office.
DB Schenker in Myanmar recently opened its first logistics facility in Yangon with a total space of 5500 sqm. Opening this facility was not easy and brought its own share of challenges companies face when engaging in emerging markets.
Banking on global expertise, DB Schenker in Myanmar was able to develop capabilities ground up with the support from the Thailand team along with the Asia Pacific regional team based in Singapore. The facility is already fully operational, supporting customers from the telecom and consumer sector. Plans are underway to further expand the warehouse and distribution capabilities in Myanmar and DB Schenker is sure to increase its footprint in the country in the near future.
