Japan logistics firms tap Southeast Asia's rising global trade

New services target Thailand and Myanmar, tackle customs issues

TOKYO -- Japanese cargo carriers look to cultivate the growing international trade around Southeast Asia, expanding service within and from the region as domestic volume stalls.

Logistics company Sankyu plans a pilot program to combine apparel made in Myanmar and Thailand for shipment to Japan in containers, looking to launch the service as early as fiscal 2018. Container shipments typically involve goods from only one country because customs duties differ widely among nations.
