Savan Logistics is operating in the first Dry Port/ICD (Inland Container Depot) in Savannakhet, Lao P.D.R.
Strategically located in Savannakhet, the state of art Dry Port/ICD is located at the East – West Corridor, linking Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, mid–way between the nearest Vietnamese sea port of Danang (about 500km) and the Thailand port of Bangkok (about 600km).
