The recently opened Logistics Center offers bonded storage and distribution processing services utilizing the bonded cargo functions available nowhere else in Myanmar but the Thilawa SEZ. Given Myanmar's hot and humid climate, the facility is also equipped with a 1,000m2 temperature-controlled and dehumidified warehouse for the storage of apparel and chemical products requiring a temperature-controlled and anti-fungal environment.

With Myanmar expected to see further development, Nittsu Logistics Myanmar will continue enhancing its logistics functions in Myanmar to meet the full range of customer needs and further expand its global logistics business.
