Danish Freight Firm Wins Burma License
22 August 2013
The global freight forwarder and logistics services provider Damco has been given a license to extend its services to Burma, the online Transport Journal reports. Citing the company’s “extensive work with NGOs, local companies and diplomats,” the report says that Damco, a subsidiary of the Danish shipping giant Maersk, was given permission in July to offer its customers access to the Burmese market. It also notes that the company will work closely with the UK-based Institute for Human Rights and Business and the Danish Institute for Human Rights to ensure that its operations in Burma comply with UN human rights guidelines.
