Nittsu Logistics (Thailand) Co., Ltd. a subsidiary of Japan-based logistics company Nippon Express recently announced they have received obtained Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) Road Transport Permits (GMS RTPs) from Thailand’s Department of Land Transport (Ministry of Transport, Kingdom of Thailand). These new permits allow transport among the GMS countries (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and China) and are effective as of June 1st, 2018.

In December 2016 an ‘early harvest’ implementation of the Cross-Border Transport Agreement (“CBTA”) was adopted by all the GMS countries. 500 vehicles in Thailand have been issued with GMS RTPs.

25 of the 500 vehicles are passenger vehicles while the remaining 475 permits were awarded to cargo vehicles for use in the logistics industry. Nippon express secured permits for 12 of the vehicles, the highest number of any other Japanese company.

Nippon Express has already been providing cross-border transportation throughout the region using bilateral and trilateral road transport permits, however with this type of permit the countries of passage must be stipulated in advance.

The newly granted permits allow for vehicles to pass freely through any of the GMS countries.

The new permits will also negate the need for cargo to be transshipped as previously required at several border crossings. With no transshipment needed the risk of damage to the cargo is greatly reduced resulting in a more reliable, high-quality service that is far more time efficient than previous.
