According to foreign media reports, in order to promote maritime trade, the Thai Ministry of Transport is setting up a national shipping company.

The deputy transport minister said she had ordered the Ports Authority of Thailand to carry out a feasibility study for cabinet consideration. Meanwhile, the director general of the Port Authority of Thailand said that the Port Authority of Thailand has submitted the results of the study to the Ministry of Transport, which will decide whether the shipping company will operate as a state-owned enterprise or a public-private partnership model.

He said the cabinet would also consider whether the project should be promoted by the Thai Investment Commission. The national shipping Line of Thailand eventually wants to have both domestic and international shipping routes, but will focus on eight domestic routes.

There are reports that the National Tourism Administration of Thailand tends to have the company operate in a public-private partnership model to achieve fast and flexible management. Initially, the shipping company will contribute approximately 2% of Thailand's import and export trade volume, or approximately 31005 20 foot standard containers.

According to sources, the goal of the national shipping company is to start operating four container ships. It is reported that this is Thailand's third attempt to establish a state-owned shipping company.
