The new technology includes the iP5000 series printer, the first printer in
the world that can print in only 1 pico-litre ink drop and give a 9600x2400
dpi under the Full-Photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) system
and the iP6000D series printer which can directly print photos from the
digital camera, memory card and mobile phone.
State railways to offer cheaper freight service to deep-water port
The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) has agreed to provide
transportation services to freight goods from the Northern Region Industrial
Estate (NRIE) in Lamphun to Laem Chabang deep-water port on the East
Services are expected to begin this month, but before you
rush to the railway station, the service charges and prices are still being
calculated, according to Preecha Kowit, adviser of the Lamphun Provincial
Industry Federation. “The proposal has been submitted to the SRT,”
Road transportation is expensive, and will become even
more so if the government increases the price of diesel. Rail freight
services could mean a 30 percent reduction in costs.
Preecha predicted that at least 250 containers of goods
from Chiang Mai and Lamphun enterprises would be delivered to Laem Chabang
port through this service and around 60 containers from the port would be
sent to the North.
“This will bring in revenue for the SRT, so both
entrepreneurs and the SRT will gain from this venue. It will also strengthen
the role of the North as a center for product transportation from the Great
Mekong Sub-Region (GMS) to the world markets. It will serve southern China
as well, which is looking for sea routes to deliver its goods to the world
market,” he said.
Entrepreneurs will be required to clear export and import
procedures with Customs Office officials at Lamphun railway station and not
at Laem Chabang port.
