At a recent media briefing, Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT) introduced their new US$600 million Terminal D facility at Laem Chabang Port (LCB).

Upon completion of all phases, Terminal D will be the largest and most advanced deep sea container terminal in Thailand. One of the most notable features of the new terminal is that it will be the first and only terminal at the Port to feature remote control technologies.
