Maersk receives permanent license in Myanmar

Maersk has received a permanent license to operate container activities in Myanmar. The license will cover Maersk Line, MCC, and Safmarine, and the company's Yangon office will open in May.

Maersk Line has long been looking toward the growing market in Myanmar, and now the company has received a permanent business license to operate independently in the country. The license covers both Maersk Line, MCC Transport, and Safmarine, says the carrier in a press release, adding that the Yangon office will open in May.

“We are pleased to be granted a permanent business license to operate our own agency in Myanmar. Since the European Union and United States eased sanctions in 2012, we have experienced a surge in interest in sourcing goods to and from Myanmar,” says My Therese Blank, Myanmar Country Manager.
