The new office will offer e-commerce capabilities later in the year, thanks to 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%, 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.” Tigers’ team of four has over ten years’ industry experience, including project management, and expertise within the oil and gas sector. “Myanmar has tremendous growth potential and fits in with our strategy of focusing on emerging markets,” said Andrew Jillings, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Group Managing Director, Tigers Ltd. “Lying between Malaysia and China, both countries where we already have offices, it further solidifies our presence in the region.”

Tigers specializes in supporting a variety of industries, including the pharmaceutical, garments, perishables, electronics, and heavy lift sectors. The Hong Kong headquartered supply chain specialist recently signed a cooperation agreement with Malaysia’s national postal provider Pos Malaysia to manage its e-commerce facility in Kuala Lumpur.
