Thailand’s infrastructure is well connected both domestically and internationally through an extensive transportation network that links it to countries in the surrounding Asian region and beyond.
Shipping out of Thailand’s six deep sea ports and two international river ports gives companies multiple channels for exports. Thailand’s largest port, Laem Chabang, has seven container terminals with TEU 10.8 million capacity. The country’s massive automotive industry benefits from three auto yards with the capacity to handle more than 2.9 million vehicles per year.
Thailand’s domestic state-of-the art transport infrastructure has drastically reduced transit times between Bangkok and the country’s more than 60 industrial estates, zones and parks. More than 40,000 miles of highway and 2,700 miles of rail within the country expand connections into surrounding regions. Seven international airports also allow for a quick flight to Asia’s major business hubs.
Recognizing the importance of their infrastructure assets, the Thai government has committed over $70 billion to infrastructure updates for its main transportation channels.
