CEO Kevin Fisher had worked in Myanmar as early as 1997, even back then he realised a gap in the market existed for a major logistics service provider, however, due to the political situation he understood the country wasn’t yet ready for a CEA Project Logistics Myanmar.
The Burmese democratic reforms that began in 2011 opened the country to new possibilities and helped it attain some sort of parity with its ASEAN neighbours. It was during a visit in early 2012 that Kevin decided the time was right to invest in Myanmar.
A sizable, 10,000m2 of warehouse and office space was soon acquired in the Thilawar commercial port, Yangon and CEA Project Logistics Myanmar was officially established in January 2013.
“We have been very successful in our branding campaign of the company and we will mirror in every aspect our business model from Thailand in Myanmar, we are strategically well poised for the eagerly awaited explosion of business in this new market place”
Kevin Fisher, Managing Director
