From an initiative of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to determine a regional plan of developing North-South economics corridor and East-West economics corridor in Indo-China region. Such development addresses a multisectoral perspective, spatial development options, and practical infrastructure, human resource, policy, regulatory and institutional barriers to trade, investment, and the movement of goods and people. Considering an intersection of both corridors, Phitsanulok province is located right on the section and has become a logistics center of Indo-China intersection. Phitsanulok is one of the Northern provinces that has sufficient infrastructure and transportation network, covering road, rail, air, water, and pipe transportation modes. It is therefore appropriate for Phitsanulok to be a distribution center of Indo-China intersection that may serve trade/commodity flow among Greater Mekong Sub-region countries. This study is aimed at 1) locating the appropriate location of a distribution center, 2) studying behavior of commodity flow, and 3) promoting and increasing awareness of business competitive advantage to farmers, agricultural sector, and private sector. Moreover, one-stop border facilities, sharing social and physical infrastructure, cross-border production networks, etc) to increase investment returns using existing transport modes (roads, water, air, and rail) are also reviewed.
