The Port Authority of Thailand (PAT) administers the port. With the growth in ocean-borne trade, the PAT has grown in both responsibility and size. Today, it is responsible for all port infrastructure supporting Thailand’s increasing exports.
Covering around one thousand hectares the Laem Chabang serves large ocean-going container ships and bulk carriers carrying cargoes to be transshipped to Bangkok and other parts of Thailand.
