Lancang-Mekong logistics platform agreed
The fifth meeting of the GMS Logistics Enterprise Cooperation Committee was held in Kunming, capital of Yunnan province on June 11, aimed at developing logistics by integrating internet technology.
Representatives of logistics associations and enterprises as well as experts from China, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand attended the event, and agreed on using internet technology to facilitate multi-level logistics cooperation in the Lancang-Mekong cooperation mechanism.
A cooperation framework agreement on building an internet plus logistics platform was signed during the meeting between Southeast Area Transportation Alliance and Yunnan's cross-border transport and the international logistics association.
Nearly 10 logistics enterprises and associations from Thailand, Laos and Burma joined the project deciding to combine efforts to establish an international platform to provide cross-border big data.
According to the agreement, the platform will be operated by Yunnan Grandstar Logistics Holding Co Ltd and support multi-language operations for users from six countries along the Lancang-Mekong River.
The building of such an intelligent platform will help share transport capacity so that win-win cooperation can be achieved among logistics enterprises, said a spokesperson.
The meeting took place as part of the ninth GMS Week for Economic Corridor, which is in company with the 2017 South-Southeast Asia Commodity Expo and Investment Fair in Kuming from June 12-18.
