Supply chain group Tigers opens new office in Myanmar
May 05, 2017: Hong Kong headquartered supply chain specialist Tigers has opened a new office in Yangon, Myanmar, as part of ongoing growth programme, supporting customers across South East Asia.
The new branch, Tigers Indo China Logistics, in Myanmar’s largest city, is headed by RS Baskkaran, and offers the group's full suite of logistics services, including international freight forwarding, Customs brokerage, and supply chain solutions.
The new office will offer e-commerce capabilities later in the year, with Tigers’ new online marketplace, eShop, which was launched as part of Tigers’ suite of e-commerce products earlier this year.
“With consistent developments and an annual GDP growth of 7.5 per cent, Myanmar is the country to watch in the South East Asia region,” said RS Baskkaran, managing director, Tigers Malaysia and South East Asia.
“We are planning to further boost our presence in Myanmar by opening two more domestic offices by the end of the year.
“We want to be a part of Myanmar’s future in the logistics industry by combining Tigers' international with our local expertise.”
“Myanmar has tremendous growth potential and fits in with our strategy of focusing on emerging markets,” said Andrew Jillings, CEO and Group Managing Director, Tigers.
“Lying between Malaysia and China, both countries where we already have offices, it further solidifies our presence in the region.”
Tigers specialises in supporting a variety of industries, including the pharmaceutical, garments, perishables, electronics, and heavy lift sectors. The company has recently signed a cooperation agreement with Malaysia’s national postal provider Pos Malaysia to manage its e-commerce facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
