Logistics

Sri Lanka’s strategic location among the main marine and air navigation routes within the South Asian region makes the country a lucrative destination for entrepot and logistic development. The country’s close proximity to emerging markets, and it’s already developed air and seaports in Colombo and Hambantota makes it an important logistics hub in the region providing entrepot and transhipment services leading shipping lines and exporters. During the last five years, the World Shipping Council has consecutively ranked Sri Lanka’s Colombo Port among Top 50 World Container Ports above other South Asia ports based on the volume of the containers handled.

Sri Lanka practices a variety of trans-shipment methods including Hub-and-Spoke, Interlining/ Intersection, and Relay. In addition to transhipment handling, Sri Lanka also provides other auxiliary maintenance and replenishing services including dry and wet dock repairs, crew changes, supplying and replenishing victuals and water. Apart from Sri Lanka’s reputation as a low-cost supply base and the recently introduced special tariff reductions for transhipment facilities, the country also offers unique aspects in relation to its position and size.
