Bangkok Clashes Keep city on Edge

Since the UDD red shirt protestor seize BKK center shopping area (Rachaprasong where most of you may know MBK and Siam Paragon) over a month. Government now block food and water supplies entering the center of the protest. The situation was like Bangkok was being held for ransom. A lot of businesses got affected because it's right in the middle of the major commercial area which including Silom Road. Currently 35 people were killed and 250 were injuries either by soldier or terrorist or protestor.


Government offices closed but Bank still open. APC also work as normal and all staffs are safe but may affect by the difficulty of transportation due to Sky train and underground mass transport were closed. Both of our offices Airport and Ekamai (Sukhumvit 63) still able to handle all airfreight and seafreight (attach please find Map of BKK). Most of the suppliers located outside BKK which not much effect for the time being.


We don’t know how long the situation will maintain but will update if the situation effect our transportation business to enable all of you inform all the clients.

Kind Regards
