Malaysia to develop logistic partnership within Asean, China & Asia Pacific

HONG KONG: Malaysia will focus on developing and expanding its logistics partnership within ASEAN, China and Asia Pacific countries, says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

He said the country was committed to creating a seamless, integrated and interconnected network across land, aviation and maritime transport network, including railways, airports and seaports.

“It is our aim to develop an efficient, productive and business-friendly environment as we transform Malaysia into a logistics hub within the region.

“As a matter of fact, in the World Bank’s ‘Doing Business Report 2017’, we were ranked 23rd for ease of doing business out of a total of 190 economies, ” he said at the Ninth World Chinese Economic Summit (WCES) here today .

Liow, who is also the Honorary Adviser to WCES, was confident Malaysia would eventually be able to improve its rankings as the country’s transport network and logistics sector gradually developed.

He said there was no doubt that transport infrastructure was crucial in promoting increased connectivity across nations.

“It is a key enabler that will certainly open up fresh opportunities for businesses.

“In particular, developing economies in Asia stand to benefit greatly, as market expansion and the formation of new network encourage more inter-trade,” he added.

Furthermore, Liow added that enhanced transport infrastructure would pave the way for a stronger logistics sector, which in turn would serve as the backbone of a nation’s economy.

On the two-day summit themed, ‘Managing Global Uncertainty: Exploring New Opportunities’, organised by the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute, Liow said: “It is heartening to have international events and summits such as the WCES to inspire us to think deeper and work harder towards achieving economic integration.” --Bernama

Kedah eyes setting up inland ports in Kulim and Bukit Kayu Hitam to boost GDP
By ADIE SURI ZULKIFLI and EMBUN MAJID - November 16, 2017 @ 8:45pm

Quote:
ALOR STAR: Kedah is aiming to rev up the state's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by at least RM1 billion with the proposed setting of two inland ports - in Kulim and Bukit Kayu Hitam.

State Investment and Industry Committee chairman Datuk Dr Ku Abdul Rahman Ku Ismail said the setting up of the two inland ports would plug the state's GDP outflow to Penang.

Citing an example, Ku Rahman said all the manufacturing sector products churned out from Kulim High-Technology Park (KHTP) and other industrial area in southern Kedah are shipped to the export markets via Penang seaport and airport.

"Although the products are manufactured in Kedah, all the export documentations are being done in Penang, so Penang has been declaring these transactions as its GDP instead of ours.

"So, by having an inland port in Kulim, we will be able to record that as Kedah's GDP by getting Customs Department to process the export documentation in Kulim itself instead of in Penang," he told reporters after the conclusion of the state legislative assembly sitting here today.

He said the state government has identified a suitable location in Kulim to set up the inland port and Kedah would hold a discussion with the Customs Department on the proposal.

On the proposed inland port in Bukit Kayu Hitam, Ku Rahman said it is meant to tap the growing southern Thai export market.

"Each year, million tonnes of rubber products from Thai passed by Bukit Kayu Hitam to Penang port and we want to capture this by opening an inland port there to handle the documentation process for the goods," he said.

Ku Rahman said the state government will seek a cooperation from Perlis government to build a rail track connecting Padang Besar to Arau which links to Bukit Kayu Hitam.

He said the other alternative is to make use with the available railway track in Kodiang.


He added that the state had also proposed to the Thai government to connect their rail track in Hatyai to Bukit Kayu Hitam for the purpose, during a recent Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) meeting.

Ku Rahman said Kedah recorded RM37.17 billion in GDP last year and the setting up of the inland ports would help to contribute towards increasing the state annual GDP to RM40 billion.

He said since 2010, the state GDP has increased by about RM10 billion from RM27.35 billion.

On another note, Ku Rahman said the state government move to impose commitment fee on all investors to Kedah is meant to help the state to focus on serious investors.

He said the state has collected almost RM18 million in commitment fee from both domestic and foreign investors since it was introduced last year.

“The commitment fee will also ensure that the state would not be misled or misused any quarters for their own benefit,” he said.

Earlier Ku Rahman told the House that the three catalyst projects in Kedah namely the Rubber City in Padang Terap, the Kedah Science and Technology Park and Special Border Economic Zone are expected to generate RM500 billion in revenue in several years to come for the state.

https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2...t-gdp#cxrecs_s
The actual plan is being led by Fed Govt. They will build an inland port at Bkt Kayu Hitam so all container cargo from Thailand to Penang's port will ditch the NSE and use this inland port. From the inland port, containers will be loaded onto trains and sent to the port in Penang.

The inland port will be complemented by a railway spur line to Arau or Kodiang (about 20-30km), depending on cost and land acquisition issues, etc.

The idea is that Thailand cargo entering Malaysia from higher up Thailand uses rail, so they enter through Padang Besar. Go straight to Penang or Port Klang.

But for south Thailand, they use trucks. And the numbers are rising. BKH checkpoint queue for trucks can reach 5km long. So what they wanna do is get these trucks to drop the containers at the inland port and turn back to Thailand ASAP. Reduced turnaround times = better asset utilisation. Also fewer lori on the NSE.

Recently in the Budget speech, PM announced BKH will be a Special Border Economic Zone. It's a new concept in Msia. It will have FIZ, FCS, which are bonded. And also it'll have special duty free areas for shopping and tourists.

Also in the budget speech, BKH toll will be abolished. PLUS highway ticketed toll ends at Jitra. North of Jitra the toll is open system, like Fed Hwy or MEX. The PLUS in that northernmost stretch is more like a B road--there are shops and even houses by the side of the highway. No tolls in BKH helps tourism.

The new ICQS is on the east of the PLUS highway. The inland port will be west of PLUS, so that the railway track doesnt have to cross PLUS. So lorries entering BKH from Thailand will have a special road/flyover that goes straight from ICQS to inland port, crossing PLUS. So lori wont kacau us normal cars going to/from Thailand. I suspect govt will ask PLUS to build and collect toll for this special road, hence why PLUS can stop collecting toll at BKH.

In summary, there is a pretty concrete plan at the top. But the issue gets murky when you have state govt interests and Perlis-Kedah sensitivities, etc.

DHL to invest nearly RM1.5bil on its Cyberjaya data centre
By NST Business - November 23, 2017 @ 4:13pm


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: DHL, the world's leading logistics company, expects to invest nearly RM1.5 billion between now and 2020 to further develop its IT services data centre in Cyberjaya.

This will create further opportunities for emerging IT talent in Malaysia and around the region.

The IT services data centre has provided critical IT infrastructure, business application development and support initially for the company's Asia Pacific and, subsequently, global operations over the past 20 years, with DHL investing more than RM4.7 billion in its development since 1997.

"Digitalisation plays an increasingly strategic role in helping global logistics networks achieve the speed, reliability and accuracy needed to keep pace with today's demands,” parent Deutsche Post DHL Group executive vice president and managing director Alexander Pilař said in a statement today.

“Investment we have made in Cyberjaya demonstrates our commitment towards enhancing our capabilities -- and helping our customers improve their market positions through best-in-class IT infrastructure and skilled talent," he added.

Malaysia Digital Economy Corp (MDEC) chief operating officer Datuk Ng Wan Peng said the country was heartened by the continued support from DHL, which reflects its unwavering commitment to Malaysia and its digital transformation agenda.

“In addition to employment creation, this move will greatly boost and strengthen the digital infrastructure and ecosystem crucial for a thriving innovation powered socio-economy. We look forward to the journey ahead with DHL, in our quest to make the digital economy a key engine of growth for Malaysia,” Ng added.

A team of more than 1,440 employees ensure the Cyberjaya IT services centre, along with their counterparts in Prague, the Czech Republic and Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, deliver 24/7 IT support across all DHL divisions -- DHL Express, DHL Global Forwarding, DHL Supply Chain, DHL eCommerce operations.

It serves as platform through which DHL hopes to strengthen and level the playing field for talent, particularly for women looking to succeed in IT -- which has traditionally been a male-dominated field.

While the Malaysia team includes members from 27 different nationalities, the majority (nearly 70 per cent) come from Malaysia, with women making up almost 40 per cent of the total workforce.

"We started our IT data centre in Malaysia 20 years ago, occupying a floor in a suburban shopping mall with just 120 staff, facing risks of disruption from flooding to the building's car park," said Deutsche Post DHL vice president of business relations for IT services (Asia Pacific) Yogananthan S.

"Since then, we've not only relocated to Cyberjaya but also established it as a key pillar in DHL's regional and global logistics strategy, backed up by one of the most diverse and high-performing workforces in the country and globally," he added.

By ZAIDI ISHAM ISMAIL November 23, 2017 @ 7:25pm



S-Form president and chief executive officer Kim Joon Nyun (third from left) said the construction and civil engineering industry in Malaysia and the region is booming. Also present was Second International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan (centre). [BERNAMA]
Quote:
SEREMBAN: S-Form System Formwork (M) Sdn Bhd, which is a unit of South Korea's S-Form Co Ltd, will make Malaysia as its regional export hub to supply aluminium formwork system services due to the country's strategic geographical location as well as its business friendly policies.

S-Form group chairman Kim Joon Nyun said the construction and civil engineering industry in Malaysia and the region is booming and the company wants to have a slice of the pie by setting up its manufacturing plant here in Bandar Sri Sendayan, its first ever outside of South Korea.

"This formwork fabrication plant will enable us to provide high quality, prompt delivery, accurate after sales service to Malaysian market as well as to establish a production base for export to South East Asian countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand.

"Companies such as IJM Land, Mah Sing and other developers are registering strong growth in Malaysia and S-Form would like to be part of that growth by supplying the formwork," Kim told NST Business here yesterday at the launch of its RM40 million factory.

Kim said the eco-friendly aluminium formwork system produced in its factory will contribute greatly to the development of the local construction industry, bolster the industrialised building systems sector and protect the Malaysian environment.

Established in 1985, South Korea stock exchange listed S-Form is the world's largest aluminium formwork system services provider for the industrial, residential, construction and civil engineering sectors in South Korea churning out 600,000 sq meters of forwork and made a revenue of US$600 million last year.

PTP welcomes the tallest ship-to-shore quay cranes in SEA
By AYISY YUSOF - November 28, 2017 @ 1:42pm



PTP chairman Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh says PTP had executed a series of equipment refurbishment and acquisition projects of RM500 million, enabling the port to create a new, full capacity berth to cater for mega vessels. (Pic by MMC Corporation Bhd)

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: MMC Group’s unit Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) becomes the first port in Southeast Asia to welcome the region’s tallest ship-to shore quay cranes.

PTP saidthee super post panama cranes stand at a lifting height of 55.5 metres and weigh 1,900 tonnes each.

The four new cranes form a part of the eight cranes ordered by PTP, with the remaining four cranes expected to be delivered by December.

PTP chairman Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said PTP had executed a series of equipment refurbishment and acquisition projects of RM500 million, enabling the port to create a new, full capacity berth to cater for mega vessels.

“By investing in state-of-the-art assets, we are further establishing our terminal as one of the best equipped and most technologically advanced terminal port in the region,” he said in a statement.

Che Khalib said the investment was to ensure PTP progresses well with the rapid changes within the port and shipping industry and subsequently meet the growing customer demand.

PTP chief executive officer Marco Neelsen said as the country's largest transhipment hub, PTP currently operates with 14 berths measuring five kilometres of quay length.

“It is imperative for the port to increase its capacity to ensure future growth while still offering valuable business proposition to its clients,” he added.

Neelsen added the new quay cranes would complement the 50 existing cranes in operation at PTP.

PTP has also acquired other terminal equipment such as 93 units of prime movers and 29 units of rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTG).

Neelsen said in terms of infrastructure upgrading, two berths will be upgraded to accommodate the new Triple E Cranes, while the capital dredging to deepen the channel is commencing.

“With demographic changes and the increased globalisation as well as regional growth continue to drive the advance of container transport, the investments in port infrastructure, global supply and demand cycles have also created stiffer competition between ports especially across the SEA region.

“Our investment towards comprehensive upgrading, refurbishment and replacement of terminal capacity and equipment is therefore a true testament of our aspiration in becoming the preferred port of choice in the region,” he said.

Zuellig Pharma KK opens largest distribution centre
6th December, 2017


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: Zuellig Pharma Kota Kinabalu branch has opened its largest pharmaceutical distribution centre in East Malaysia as it continues to expand.

The 28,000 sq. ft. distribution centre has a total storage capacity of 1,700 pallets for controlled room temperature products and 96 pallets for cold chain products.

Its Chief Executive Officer, John Davison said the RM11 billion business that specialises in pharmaceuticals and healthcare products distribution have been running for nearly 100 years with Malaysia as one of the largest and most successful operations.

“Today we are opening a new facility which will help us to manage the growth we are experiencing in this part of Malaysia for the next 10 years, at least.

“Sabah branch has been going for probably 30 to 35 years and it is one of our most successful, fastest growing branches,” he told New Sabah Times.

With over 40 clients including GSK, Pfizer and AstraZeneca among others, Zuellig Pharma manages the supply chain from importing pharmaceutical products into Malaysia to delivering healthcare services in pharmacies, hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities across the country.

To keep up in the digital era, John noted that the company has an active e-commerce platform, eZRx which allows customers to order their products online.

He added that a new technology, Sales Force Automation is also being introduced to allow sales and medical reps to place orders on behalf of customers seamlessly into the company’s supply chain system.

“We invest very heavily in SAP (System, Applications and Products) technology in the last few years and we will be implementing the latest generation of SAP technology in Malaysia in the first half of 2018.

“With that, we’re in a position to offer much more cutting edge data analytics to help our clients understand what’s happening to their products in the market in terms of coverage and how they invest in different channels,” asserted John.

He described it as timely so as to enable clients to understand their business in greater detail as the service was never previously available.

According to him, with a roughly 60 per cent share in the Malaysian market, the company seeks to provide choice and ensure patients in this country are able to choose between all the products available worldwide.

“Our role is to make sure medicines that are available worldwide are also available here in Malaysia so there’s choice and the healthcare system can access medicines that can really bring differences in people’s lives,” said John.

Catering to the growing demands of the business in East Malaysia, the Kota Kinabalu distribution centre will also support deliveries in Brunei, optimising inventory replenishment for all cold-chain and room temperature products.

In addition to being ISO Certified for warehouse and distribution services, the new distribution centre is GDSP (Good Storage and Distribution Practice) compliant in accordance with European Union, United States FDA and the World Health Organisation Good Storage Practice.

It is also equipped with the latest security systems, round-the-clock temperature monitoring system and an independent back up power generator, enhancing its quality and security systems.

“Market is growing five to seven per cent per annum and we help to drive that growth by introducing new therapies and clients to Malaysia and the healthcare system here but as we need more capacity, we will simply expand and keep building.

“We’ve been in the business for nearly 100 years; Malaysia is one of our top markets and we are very proud to be here serving Malaysian people,” John concluded.

By the end of next year, Zuellig Pharma Kota Kinabalu will also be introducing a sophisticated new cold chain storage solution – the eZCooler that ensures the integrity of temperature sensitive products to the last mile of distribution by extending the storage time of these products in transit from two to five days.

“The eZCooler will enable greater reach for temperature sensitive products like vaccines and insulin to rural and remote areas throughout Sabah. We are constantly improving our infrastructure and technology to make healthcare more accessible in Malaysia,” said Malaysia Chief Executive, Santiago Garcia.

Serving the Asia healthcare market since 1922, Zuellig Pharma employs 10,000 people and serves over 350,000 doctors, hospitals, pharmacies and clinics across the region, helping to make healthcare more accessible.

Also present during the opening ceremony were Borneo General Manager Shanan Nair, Sabah Branch manager Jason Ho and Sarawak Branch manager Ting Chang Siong

Pos Laju To Rake In RM700 Mln Revenue In 2017
Print Email Details Published on Tuesday, 12 December 2017 15:03



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR -- Pos Malaysia Bhd expects its courier arm, Pos Laju to contribute a revenue of about RM700 million this year and sustain a growth of 20 to 21 per cent next year.

Its Group Chief Operator, Datuk Azlan Shahrim said Pos Laju had been experiencing a robust growth of about 20 per cent in its courier services year-on-year for the past three years in line with the country’s e-commerce expansion.

He said Pos Laju had become the group’s largest revenue contributor and this was expected to continue, driven by e-commerce growth even though it was still relatively low compared to that of other countries 20 to 25 per cent yearly.

He was speaking to reporters after the launch of the 2017 Pos Laju Prepaid Xtravaganza Contest, officiated by Pos Malaysia outgoing Chief Executive Officer Datuk Mohd Shukrie Mohd, here today.

Moving forward, Azlan said Pos Malaysia would continue to improve it services, including adding more touch points to make it more convenient for customers to reach the services.

Currently, Pos Malaysia has about 700 post offices, 86 Pos Laju centres, 12 drive through counters, with plans afoot to add 20 more in the near term, and pick up service which is free for contracts customers.

Azlan said Pos Malaysia currently has 22,000 contract customers who contributed about 45 per cent to its revenue.

On the contest, Group Chief Commercial Officer Nor Azizan Tarja said it was organised in line with the year-end online sales to entice consumers to choose Pos Laju as their courier of choice, as well as to reward customers.

“We expect a few million of sales will be generated via this campaign, but considering it’s a peak period, the idea is not to generate more sales since people would buy anyway, instead to reward customers who had been loyal to us,” he said.

The contest, which runs from Dec 1 this year until Feb 28, 2018, is open to all walk-in customers who purchase Pos Laju Prepaid products, offers them a chance to be rewarded with free shipping worth RM222,000.

Azlan said the Pos Laju prepaid products could be purchased at Pos Laju centres, Pos Laju kiosks, EziDrive-Thru, post offices, Pos Laju Go2U, and Pos-on-wheels.

AirAsia set to expand cargo unit
By AYISY YUSOF - December 18, 2017 @ 10:21am



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: AIRASIA Bhd is looking to expand its air cargo business, which is expected to lift the company’s revenue.

“There is a lot of belly space not just on the Airbus A320 aircraft but also the A330s. This is one way for us to optimise our revenue, to be able to put cargo or courier products in that space,” its chief executive officer (CEO) Aireen Omar told NST Business recently.

Based on the airline’s huge network in the region, with more than 350 routes in over 80 destinations, Aireen said the cargo business would also complement the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ).

“That is the whole idea of why we feel we can grow this business even bigger, especially with the establishment of DFTZ.”

Aireen is confident the airline will achieve stellar results this year because of various measures to strengthen its businesses.

AirAsia has embarked on several initiatives to expand its network and build its ancillary and adjacency businesses.

“With various joint ventures, we hope to launch these businesses next year, too,” she said.

Asean remains a huge market for the airline to continue its growth momentum.

“We have a strong base in Asean. We aim to fly to bigger markets outside Asean, like China, India, Japan, South Korea and Australia.”

She said there were many growth opportunities.

“We will be restructuring our organisation as we get bigger. We want to make sure the structures facilitate the growth. Hence, it will be easier for investors to value the company better, as we get bigger,” she added.

Quote:
ALOR STAR: The Special Border Economic Zone (SBEZ) project in Bukit Kayu Hitam is expected to contribute up to RM40 billion a year to the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani said SBEZ, announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak during the tabling of the 2018 Budget last year, will enter it physical work phase soon.

“The project is currently at the planning stage before we can proceed to obtain state approval for the land to be gazetted.

“We believe that we need to develop the border area especially with the economic development in southern Thai,” he told reporters after attending a briefing on SBEZ with state leaders here today.

Also present was Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah.

Johari said SBEZ would be developed on a 4,451 ha of land that includes a land port, a free trade zone and a commercial area.

He said the first phase of the project would involve the development of a free trade zone on a 930 ha land.

SBEZ, which aims to boost the northern region economic development, is expected to cost about RM50 billion.

KUALA LUMPUR: Johor Port Bhd, a member of MMC Group, has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I (PELINDO I) to establish Roll on Roll Off (RORO) activities and shipping connectivity.

JPB chairman Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said the MoU was another stepping stone for the ports managed by PELINDO I and MMC Ports.

“JPB is part of Malaysia’s largest port operator and holds various expertise in ports management with over 40 years’ experience,” he said in a statement today.

Both ports will explore potential co-operation and other opportunities in port and logistics business such as operation and management approach on existing and new port development, and joint collaboration on new port development.

Che Khalib added that the collaboration would serve as a catalyst to enhance the development and further quality improvement efforts including port operations, competencies and efficiencies.

The MoU also encompasses a synergistic collaboration in sharing JPB’s experience and expertise in port management and operations with PELINDO I in the areas of port training services, consultation on container and conventional operations, collaboration on inter port logistics services; and a sister port partnership program.

The port training services will include training for container and conventional terminal operations, operation of cranes and forklifts; and handling of another terminal equipment.

Meanwhile, under the sister port partnership program, JPB and MMC Ports will develop joint marketing activities with the PELINDO I ports to further enhance feeder service to the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) and Singapore-Johore-Riau (SIJORI).

These marketing activities will encourage trading of commodities and cargo consolidation activities in Johor.

PELINDO I operates ports in Sumatera/Aceh, while MMC group ports consist of JPB, Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Northport (Malaysia), Penang Port and Tanjung Bruas Port in Melaka.

Faster goods transportation between Malaysia and Indonesia via RORO
By MOHD FAHMI MOHD YUSOF - February 15, 2018 @ 6:52pm


Quote:
JOHOR BARU: Trade and tourism between Malaysia and Indonesia are expected to expand further with the first Roll On Roll Off (RORO) service between the two nations.

The new RORO service will begin operations at the end of this year between Tanjung Bruas, Melaka and Dumai, Sumatera, Indonesia.

This follows the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Johor Port Berhad and PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I (PELINDO I) here today.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said the RORO service will see a new economic dimension between the two Asean nations.

He said the infrastructure groundwork for the project in Dumai, Sumatera is currently being implemented, whereas RM100 million had been allocated to upgrade the Tanjung Beruas port in Melaka, including the construction of the new Qurantine, Immigration and Customs complex.

“With such a service in place, the cost of goods transportation will become cheaper and faster. It will see goods transported by lorries from Sumatera reach traders (in Malaysia) directly through the RORO service.

“If before this, the transportation of goods will have to undergo unloading process at the port, which will take a week, with the RORO their transportation will only take five hours in crossing the Straits of Melaka,” he told reporters after the MoU signing ceremony today.

At the MoU signing ceremony Johor Port Bhd was represented by its Chief Executive Officer Shahrull Allam Shah Abdul Halim, whereas PELINDO I was represented by its Human Resources and Public Affairs director Hamid Wijaya. Also present was Indonesia’s Deputy Ambassador to Malaysia, Andreano Erwin.

Aziz said in addition to trade and goods transportation the RORO service could also be utilised as an alternative route by Malaysian tourists to Sumatera, Indonesia.

“The ministry is currently conducting a detailed study on the implementation of the RORO service between Penang and Aceh,” he said.

A RORO can transport 20 lorries as well as 20 cars at any one time.

Sime Darby exploring opportunites to monetise Shandong logistics investment
February 24, 2018, Saturday


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Sime Darby Bhd is exploring opportunities to monetise its RM2.4 billion investment in the logistics business in Shandong, China.

Group chief executive officer Jeffri Salim Davidson said its investment in Shandong comprised Weifang Sime Darby Port, three river ports and a water treatment plant.

“Monetising basically means we are taking money out of the business, selling part of it.

“Listing is probably a bit difficult because it is too small to be meaningful,” he said at a briefing on the company’s first-half financial year 2018 results yesterday.

He, however, declined to disclose details except to say that Sime Darby had yet to speak to any party on the monetisation plan.

Meanwhile, Sime Darby is upbeat on maintaining its robust growth in the industrial and motor divisions for the financial year 2018 driven by encouraging performances in the previous quarters.

He said the industrial and motors divisions would primarily be spurred by healthy mining activity in Australia and launches of new BMW models.

“We believe these businesses will continue to generate significant revenue for the company. However, other sectors like logistics and healthcare growth are expected to be moderate,” he said at a press conference here today.

Jeffri said the industrial division was mainly involved in sales and rental, as well as, parts and maintenance of Caterpillar and other machinery products.

On the motor division, Jeffri said Sime Darby Bhd would start producing BMW engines next month at its Inokom Plant in Kulim, Kedah.

“The new engine plant is located within our existing facility with an annual production capacity of 10,000 engines for both local and export markets,” he said, adding that BMW marquee contributed between 60 per cent and 70 per cent of its motor division.

Sime Darby Bhd’s net profit for the second quarter ended Dec 31, 2017 fell 51.5 per cent to RM344 million compared with RM709 million chalked up in the previous corresponding quarter.

Revenue for the quarter, however, was higher at RM8.81 billion versus RM8.09 billion recorded a year ago.

For the six-month period, net profit rose 34.9 per cent, year-on-year, to RM1.74 billion while revenue jumped to RM16.95 billion against RM15.02 billion registered in the matching period of 2016. — Bernama

AirAsia appoints new leader for its logistic arm
By AYISY YUSOF - February 23, 2018 @ 5:20pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Bhd has chosen Datuk Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh to lead its newly-formed logistic arm, Redbox Logistics.

In a twitter posting on Thursday, AirAsia group chief executive officer (CEO) Tan Sri Tony Fernandes announced that the former group chief executive officer of Pos Malaysia Bhd was joining the airline.

“Great to announce that Datuk Shukrie formerly CEO of Pos Malaysia Bhd has joined AirAsia in our new formerly logistics arm, Redbox Logistics. A very powerful e-commerce Asean and Asian logistics company. Huge upside and value. We have the planes,” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, Shukrie confirmed his appointment in Redbox Logistics with NST Business today.

Shukrie left Pos Malaysia in December last year, after serving the postal delivery service company for five years. He has also been serving DRB-Hicom Bhd for 12 years. His previous position in Pos Malaysia was taken over by Al-Ishsal Ishak on January, 23 this year.

NST Business previously reported that Pos Malaysia expects a “significant contribution” in the financial year ending March 31, 2019 (FY19), leveraging on the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) at the KLIA Aeropolis.

Shukrie then said Pos Malaysia’s subsidiary Pos Aviation and Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd would facilitate the pilot phase by Lazada, which is 83 per cent-owned by Alibaba Group and Cainiao.

“The number continues to change because as we add more customers, we are going to have more. It is going to be a significant contribution to us going forward. However, I am not able to share exactly as we are finalising some numbers,” he had said.

Former AirAsia CEO Aireen Omar reportedly said the low-cost airline was leaping at the opportunity to build an air cargo business, giving it a “snowball” effect to its revenue.

Aireen said the airline has a huge network in the region with total flights more than 350 routes for the whole group with over 80 destinations.

“There is a lot of belly space not just for the A320 but also for the A330. That is one way for us to optimise our revenue to be able to put cargo/courier products in that belly space itself,” she told NST Business in an interview recently.

Aireen said the airline’s idea of forming the logistic business would also compliment the government’s establishment of the DFTZ.

“That is the whole idea of why we feel we can even grow this business even bigger especially with the establishment of DFTZ,” she added.

Quote:
PENANG: Penang Port Sdn Bhd is allocating RM180 million for expansion works this year which will involve berth strengthening and purchase of two quay cranes for the port’s operation capacity enhancement.

Penang Port Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Sasedharan Vasudevan said shareholders have recently approved the capex for the first phase expansion, which will allow the container terminal to increase its berth capacity up to 2.9 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs).

“We are still at designing and consulting stages with engineers. The expansion includes widening and strengthening the berth spaces at the terminal,” he told reporters during a media familiarisation visit to Penang Port recently.

Sasedharan said the big chunk of the approved capex will be allocated for the container business to provide container throughput from the current capability of 2 million TEUs to 2.8 million TEUs in the future.

He pointed out the capex will be internally funded by the company as the expansion work is needed for the growing demand of the container business.

"The expansion will eventually allow bigger vessel docking and increase throughput capacity,” he said.

Sasedharan said dredging work will allow channel depth up to 11.5m from the current depth of about 11m, allowing the port operator to expand the vessel size calling its container terminal.

“We believe if the growing trend continues, we will hit throughput 2.2 million TEUs or 2.3 million TEUs in the next four to five years.

“However, we have yet to fill up the capacity. We have to start the work now to meet the future's demand,” he added.

Sasedharan said the expansion work will take between 18 months and 20 months to complete the project, while the commencement is expected by the third quarter (Q3) this year.

“We have done 1.5 TEUs in 2017, representing about six per cent growth year-on-year (YoY). We are currently studying the feasibility studies for the expansion plan,” he said, adding that Penang port employs about 1,500 staff.

Penang Port had allocated between RM30 million and RM40 million in 2016 for the purchase of container yard operations equipment.

The port is also targeting to hit about 1.6 million TEUs or five per cent increase in growth for from last year’s achievement of 1.5 million TEUs.

“1.5 million TEUs in 2017 comprised containerised cargo only and non-containerised cargo with the cargo value ratio of 58 per cent container and 12 per cent of general container, respectively,” he said.

MMC Corp Bhd under its subsidiary MMC Ports Holdings Sdn Bhd holds 49 per cent stake in Penang Port from Seaport Terminal Johore Sdn Bhd in 2016.

According to the company’s filing to Bursa Malaysia, MMC Port has proposed to acquire the remaining 51 per cent stake, representing 37.46 million shares in Penang Port Sdn Bhd worth RM220 million from Seaport Terminal Johore.

Sasedharan said the acquisition of the remaining 51 per cent stake in Penang Port from MMC Ports is expected to complete by the first half this year.

On the potential of increasing automation in port’s operation, Sasedharan said it is still ‘green’ for the port operator to embark on mechanisation in terms of machinery handling.

Shippers at the Penang Port transport 80 per cent of goods to Far East mostly China, Japan and Korea, while remaining 20 per cent to the Middle East and other areas.

He said Penang Port's revenue contribution to MMC Ports was 30 per cent in 2017 with a total of 1.52 million TEUs.

“Last year’s better cargo volume was primarily driven from Southern Thailand, represented about 38 per cent of cargo volume and organic growth from the Northern Malaysia,” he added.

SPSB adopts Sage to support expansion plans
February 28, 2018, Wednesday


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd (SPSB) has adopted Sage, an integrated accounting, payment and banking solution to better streamline operations, improve data management and insights, and budgetary costs analysis to drive business growth.

SPSB, a subsidiary of Suria Capital Holdings Bhd, has embarked on an expansion plan to upgrade port capabilities to handle 1.21 million Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit (TEUs) during the first phase of development.

Upon completion of the port expansion, SPSB would be handling up to 3.76 million TEUs
.

SPSB said in a statement that the adoption of Sage would assist the port operator in securing real-time data management and analysis, needed for faster decision-making.

Chairman, Datuk Karim Bujang said real-time business insights and visibility are critical for Sabah Ports’ expansion, as it could collect real-time information on all aspects of the business and assist the company in quickly identifying problems and making informed decisions.

As the main port operator in the state, SPSB has delivered maritime logistics, access and opportunities for Sabah, along with bringing the world to Malaysia’s shores.

The company manages eight ports located strategically on both the west and east coasts of the state, including the Sapangar Bay Container Port, which will be developed into a transhipment hub. — Bernama

DHL Set To Open Global Centre Of Excellence In Iskandar Malaysia
Published on Wednesday, 07 March 2018 21:11



Quote:
ISKANDAR PUTERI -- DHL, a global market leader in the logistics industry, is setting up a Global Centre of Excellence (GCOE) in Iskandar Malaysia - its first in the country.

The centre will provide supply chain consultancy services and support businesses to design logistics solutions, specific to some of Iskandar Malaysia’s key industries.

The industries include automotive, energy, engineering and manufacturing, life and sciences and healthcare and technology.

GCOE Managing Director Philip Chu said the all-new facility, which is expected to be operational in second quarter of this year, was jointly established by DHL and Iskandar Innovations Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Iskandar Investment Bhd (IIB).

The new centre will serve as a platform to connect companies with key stakeholders within Iskandar Malaysia and to power the region’s logistics ambitions with networking sessions and workshops, where companies and industry experts come together to share best practices to brainstorm innovative ideas that will form the future of Iskandar Malaysia.

"We want to create an ecosystem within Iskandar Malaysia and to establish a single network that is conducive to all companies to explore and set up business in the region as their gateway to markets around the world," Chu said during the official announcement of partnership between IIB and DHL for the GCOE here, today.

The event was graced by Iskandar Puteri City Council Mayor Adib Azhari Daud. Present were IIB President Datuk Khairil Anwar Ahmad and DHL Global Fast Growing Enterprise and Regional Head, Customer Solutions and Innovation Asia Pacific President Alfred Goh.

Meanwhile, Goh cited Malaysia’s rapid development, particularly in Iskandar Malaysia, as one of key factors why DHL decided to set up the GCOE here.

"As Malaysia’s broader economy grows in domestic demand and overseas exports alike, Iskandar manufacturing and production industries will need increasingly efficient, flexible and scalable supply chains to power future economic development.

"By complementing pure logistics skills and solutions with broader business development, market insights and networking with key decision-makers around the world, we believe the GCOE will help Iskandar align its logistics investments with global demand and market forces more closely than ever before.

"It will also help Iskandar attract more Foreign Direct Investment in the future," he said.

Khairil Anwar said the GCOE would not only allow Iskandar Malaysia to achieve its ambitions of becoming the ASEAN supply chain hub, but also provide vital trade connectivity between its core industries and overseas markets where opportunities were aplenty.

At the same, it is very timely in view of e-commerce industry vibrant in Malaysia, he said.-- BERNAMA

Sabah
POIC Lahad Datu gearing up for Container Port inauguration
March 17, 2018, Saturday


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The Palm Oil Industrial Cluster in Lahad Datu is gearing up to inaugurate the opening of the much-awaited Lahad Datu Container Port, said BIMP-EAGA Business Council (BEBC) Advisor, Datuk Roselan Johar Mohamed recently.

“If all goes well, we hope it will be opened real soon,” he said to the Borneo Post.

He added that this was very good news to the manufacturers and exporters within Lahad Datu who had to transport their containers to Tawau port for export.

“The economic survival of Sabah is to promote more exports and that is where the money is. BEBC is very happy with the Sabah Government and POIC for they possess the foresight to plan the port for the benefits of our exporters as well as our importers,” he said.

He said that Lahad Datu can now stand on its own to chart its own destiny and that with POIC in good hands, the industrialisation of Lahad Datu was gradually taking shape.

Roselan said that BEBC has also been informed that the government would soon be initiating more new exports, especially when the Sepanggar Bay Container Depot commences its construction works.

He added that upon its completion, the port would be able to handle 1.2 million containers per annum.

“Whilst 300,000 containers are from imports, the balance of 600,000 or so has to come from exports. BEBC is currently working with our development partners in China and Japan in formulating a natural flow of exports for Sabah,” he said.

He also said that he hoped the election fever would be over soon so that business can go on as usual to propel more exports for Sabah.

He also urged those with idled land banks to talk to them so some plans could be made for the future.

“We have to do the ground work in preparation for the Sepanggar Container Terminal to be ready by early 2021,” he said.

Roselan also commented on the delayed ferry service from Kudat to Palawan.

“Please give us a little more time and we will solve all nitty-gritties through the cooperative spirit of BIMP-EAGA,” he said
