Geographical Advantage


Sri Lanka: 'The Emerald Island' is strategically located at the crossroads of both east and west sea routes and serves as the point of entry to South Asia. In fact Colombo Port is ranked as the No. 1 port of South Asia and 26th in the world. About 23 shipping lines and 7 feeder services operate out of Colombo.
