    TNSC wants Govt to build dry ports

    BANGKOK, 11th October 2018 (NNT)- The Thai National Shippers’ Council (TNSC) has urged the government to build dry ports across the country to lower transportation costs for exporters.

    TNSC President Ms. Kanyapak Tantipipatpong says that despite the export growth forecast of 9% this year, exporters are still coping with rising transportation costs which are triggered by traffic jams and rising fuel prices.

    Ms. Kanyapak is urging the government to speed up infrastructure projects to ease traffic congestion in front of sea ports and build dry ports to shorten the time it takes to process export goods. Transportation costs in the export sector account for 14.5% of the GDP.

    Deputy Director of the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning Mrs. Wilairat Sirisophonsilp has advised the industry that a study on the development of dry ports is being conducted to ensure the efficiency of the transportation system in Thailand and to promote Thailand as a regional logistic hub.

    Seems to be a logical logistics liquidity deficit.If your needing customs officers at the import ports , seem logical to have the exports at a nearby location

    Even if customs clearance inland the goods still need to move to the airport/seaport unless levitation, trance mogrification or telekinesis, I know the hobnob I left in the saucer has vanished.

    Perhaps they might consider a HUB?
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.
