Maritime transportation is a major mode of transportation and trade and Maritime logistics management is crucial for the nation to develop the economy. Better logistics management can reduce trade costs, help nations to compete globally and increase the competitive advantage as logistics is the backbone of the trade. Myanmar needs to improve its Maritime logistics industry for the country’s economic growth as Asia becomes the focal point for economic growth, trade, and geopolitical transformation. Procedures for logistics management and port cargo handling in Myanmar are currently done by the conventional paperwork, making significant delays and economic loss for the nation. Myanmar’s Ministry of Transport and Japan cooperated and implemented the Port EDI System in Yangon Port. However, other ports of Myanmar are still lacking the information system to manage the maritime logistics processes and have negative effect on Maritime Logistics Management, Maritime Pilots and Maritime Security.

The research investigated how Port EDI System of Yangon Port has benefited the port operation and maritime logistics industry of Myanmar. Based on the benefits and experiences of Yangon’s Port EDI System, implementation of Management Information System is suggested. The research also highlighted possible benefits of implementing the system for maritime pilots, reducing corruption and maritime security. In addition, the research has recommended the implementation of National Single Window (NSW) System by integrating the various information systems and other stakeholders concerned based on the experiences of Japan, Korea, and Singapore.
