On October 14, NYK and Myanmar-based Silverbird Auto Logistics Ltd.* will start an inland transportation service in Myanmar for finished automobiles.
The Myanmar automobile market, which had traditionally been dominated by used-car imports from Japan, changed dramatically in 2014 with the rapid increase of new-car imports from numerous countries. In line with this change, NYK is making efforts to expand the company’s high quality logistics services within the country.
In 2011, NYK restarted its pure car carrier service to Yangon, and this service is currently offered twice a month. NYK also offers its customers in Myanmar comprehensive logistics services that include storage, PDI,** and customs clearance.
NYK, Silverbird Auto Logistics Limited, and the Phee Group*** are working to establish a joint venture company in 2015 — one that will allow the NYK Group to offer comprehensive logistics services in Myanmar both in name and performance.
Building on its extensive know-how and experience in CBU**** transportation in ASEAN countries, NYK will take advantage of the "creative solutions" initiated in the company’s "More Than Shipping 2018" medium-term management plan to provide higher quality inland logistics services in Myanmar.
