The Bangkok Port, under the Port Authority of Thailand, has been Thailand's major port for more than 40 years grown and developed in line with the country's economic and social development program. However, as international trade is becoming together with the modernity of transportation methods and Thailand's tendency to become an industrial country, only the Bangkok Port, accommodating ships of not over 8.2 metres draught, could not cope with these trends. Thus, the construction of a new deep-sea port is an answer. The Laem Chabang Port is designed to render services to large container ships and bulk carriers which cannot be accommodated at the Bangkok Port. It is also an infrastructure for the Eastern Seaboard Development Program, and for the country's export promotion. Laem Chabang Port, covering an area of about 1,000 hectors, is located in Sri-Racha and Banglamung District, Chonburi Provide, at a distance of about 130 kms, from down-town Bangkok.
