OblinCEA in Myanmar were contracted by Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ) for the transportation of 2200 concrete piles from a pile manufacturing facility in Lumut, Malaysia to the Ahlone International Port Terminal 2 located on the east bank of the Yangon River, Myanmar.
The project included sea transportation via barges, several types of cranes to carry out the loading and unloading of the piles and liaising with the relevant authorities in each country to acquire the necessary permissions and permits.
Piles Loaded in Malaysia

The Ahlone International Port Terminal 2 has been developed over 60 acres in Myanmar’s commercial capital Yangon and will employ over 1,100 local people. The terminal was built by Adani Ports and Logistics under the auspices of the Myanmar Port Authority and the Myanmar Ministry of Transport and Communication.


The OblinCEA transport management team kept in constant contact with the pile manufacturing facility and the client to ensure each barge arrived for loading at the facility at the optimum time. Certified loading and rigging teams applied the correct sea-fastening of the cargo aboard the flat-top barges.
The convoy of barges was tracked and monitored throughout its journey across international waters. Working closely with the Myanmar Port Authority, OblinCEA secured all the required permits for foreign sea-going vessels entering Myanmar waters, this close relationship resulted in all barges and their cargo birthing at the final destination within the client’s given timeframe.
OblinCEA used cranes, trucks and trailers to carry out all the lifting and logistics operations within the port. Once all the piles had been discharged the foreign vessels were cleared to leave Myanmar waters and return to Malaysia.
Due to the global pandemic and the political unrest in Myanmar, the project faced many challenges and delays, however, OblinCEA remained undeterred by this and delivered the project in the best possible time; this could be only achieved thanks to the meticulous planning carried out by our highly experienced logistics management teams.
