Ranong Port

Ranong Port serves the southern part of Thailand and also facilitates traffic between Thailand and Myanmar, with its border close to Ranong. Much of Myanmar’s fisheries end up in Ranong for processing and onward export.

The Port of Authority of Thailand (PAT) is pressing ahead with the development of Ranong Port as a logistics gateway between Thailand and India as both countries have agreed to promote a new maritime route in the Andaman Sea. This is part of the government’s policy to boost trade with India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

The first phase of the port’s development will see Ranong’s Port handling capacity increase from 78,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs)/year to 500,000 TEUs/year by 2022.
