Panalpina moves in to Myanmar

Established in Myanmar’s largest city of Yangon, Panalpina’s new office officially took up operations in mid-August.

Thorsten Harenberg, country manager for Panalpina Myanmar said, “We expect our Energy Solutions team to be heavily involved, as the country develops in the coming years,” adding, “In the short term, both air and ocean imports will be driving the business. Exports will be limited until the country develops a viable manufacturing industry. Further down the road we also intend to offer value-added logistics services.”
