Logistics service starts between Yangon and Shanghai

ShipYangon, 5 Feb- A logistics service between Yangon and Shanghai was introduced at a ceremony held at Parkroyal Hotel here on Wednesday.
As a sister company of Maersk Group, one of the world’s biggest shipping companies, MCC Transport has made an attempt to capitalize on growing trade between Myanmar and China by pioneering a new direct logistics service between the two countries.
Leaving Shanghai on 27 January, the first 1100 TEU container vessel will arrive in Yangon on 9 February, according to reports.
In the past, it took 18 days to travel from Shanghai to Yangon, but the new lines will shorten the time to 13 days, said MCC Transport CEO Tim Wickmann, adding that transparent trade policies attract their investment to the country.
