Asian Supply Base aims to become global O&G logistics hub
July 18, 2017, Tuesday


Quote:
LABUAN: Asian Supply Base Sdn Bhd (ASB), a Sabah government-linked company, is striving towards becoming a global oil and gas (O&G) logistics hub.

The Labuan-based fully integrated logistics hub sees itself as the natural industry leader, having attracted international O&G firms to the island, reflecting the country’s role in connecting Labuan to the global leaders in this sector.

Chief executive officer, Datuk Harris Annuar Tan, said at least 97 local and international O&G-related companies are still operating at the hub currently, a slight drop after a number of companies ceased their operations since late last year.

Among the international firms still operating at the base are Halliburton, Schlumberger, Baker Hughes and MMC Engineering.

“We used to have more than 107 companies operating in our base, but it’s now down to less than 100, nevertheless, our operation continues as usual, and we continue recruiting people to ensure our service is always available.

“After operating for many years and with the trust of our clients, ASB logistics hub has the largest workforce in Labuan estimated at close to 5, 000 including workers attached to foreign firms, and this indirectly helps to spur the island’s economy,” he told a press conference yesterday.

He said unlike some other O&G companies which resorted to downsizing their operations which had led to staff retrenchment amid a slump in global oil processes, ASB itself had retained its more than 1,000 employees as of today.

Harris also stressed the need for the company to be prudent in its spending especially for its operation in view of the uncertain economic situation.

He said the main challenge this year was the possibility of its clients suffering a slowdown due to the sluggish economy although ASB would not be directly affected. — Bernama

ASB looking at turning Labuan into Halal hub
Published on: Tuesday, July 18, 2017


Quote:
Labuan: Asian Supply Base (ASB) is looking for alternatives to support Labuan like they have done the past 40 years being the major contributor to the island's economy and is now looking at developing it into a halal hub.

"We already have most of it - the transhipment, the warehouse and the port.

We have the logistics to support Labuan as a halal hub but we need to be certified by the halal supply chain management," said its CEO Datuk Harris Annuar Tan.

"We already have a halal port in the Kiamsam area, but it is only 20 acres and the size may pose a problem to investors. However, we can convince investors that it is enough. If any developments need to be done, it is possible because there are many empty warehouses in Labuan," he told a press conference.

Also present was Labuan MP Datuk Rozman Isli, who is also part of the company's board.

Rozman said ASB has taken advantage of Labuan's strategic location and made the island into a logistics hub.

"They have turned a potential into reality. Therefore, I believe that they will continue to do just that in the future.
So the halal hub development is a huge possibility and a great opportunity," said Rozman.

He also said ASB is an asset to the island that should not be wasted and only limited to oil and gas.

ASB is looking away from the oil and gas industry for other alternatives in the port business to sustain the workforce.

ASB has the biggest workforce in Labuan supporting over 1000 staff. Some 97 more companies are affiliated with ASB and thus having an accumulated 4,000 to 5,000 staff.

Even with such a high figure, ASB, being a state government company, has never retrenched anyone.
In fact, ASB is employing more people during this period of oil and gas turbulence.

"Rozman advised me not to retrench anyone. This is the time to help the locals and the economy," said Harris.

"Therefore, we need to find other means to support our workforce. I'm thankful for our very supportive board being involved in our planning for new business ventures," he said.

ASB is traditionally a logistics support for oil and gas activities but now with the industry's downfall, ASB does not want to be limited to only oil and gas.

"We started reaching out to Europe, China, US and Australia by extending our invitation to them to come and take a look at what Labuan has to offer in the port business," said Harris.

The CEO also met with technology partners from London willing to team up with ASB and their subsidiaries to look into bringing their industry into the island.

The ASB infrastructure has been developed for over 35 years. It is more than just an oil and gas port, it is an open entity.

"We used to have 20 to 30 vessels coming in to our port per day, but now we only have five to six.

So to make full use of our facility, we have decided to open it to the possibility of other ventures.

This is also a great opportunity for us," said Harris.

Although ASB will be working on the halal hub, it will be segregated from their oil and gas activities.

The island is the centre of Asia Pacific and can easily establish itself as a distribution centre especially in South East Asia.

"Therefore, I seek the support of all the chambers of commerce in Labuan to look for players to come into the island. No one can complain if we have already provided all these infrastructures and facilities.

All we need now to make this possible," he said. - Iffah Dilaney

Improved port services to benefit manufacturers, says FMM
By Bernama - August 5, 2017 @ 1:22pm


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Manufacturers will benefit from the improved port services with the completion of the second gate consisting of 14 lanes in Westports, said the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM).

In a statement today, FMM said, it commended the immediate efforts by Westports Malaysia Sdn Bhd and the Customs Department to ease the recent congestion in Port Klang.

This would benefit shippers, especially manufacturers practising just-in-time inventory systems, it said.

“More lanes would allow Westports to have ample capacity to cope with the growth of local import and export volume from shippers.

“Besides reduction in manufacturing inventory costs, a more efficient port system reduces the export and import costs by eliminating exorbitant demurrage and detention charges imposed by shipping lines on hauliers which is then passed on to shippers,” it said.

The Association of Malaysian Hauliers, in its recent report, had said an improved port system would boost the number of trips by hauliers and cut unproductive time spent by lorry drivers waiting at the gate or outside the depot, FMM said.

FMM said it looked forward to continued collaborative efforts by all stakeholders to ensure Port Klang remained an important gateway for Malaysian exports as well as a growing centre for regional transhipment. — BERNAMA

Cabotage policy exemption means cheaper goods
August 8, 2017, Tuesday


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The cabotage policy exemption for cargo shipping activities from ports in the peninsula to Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan is expected to lower goods price in East Malaysia.

Transport Deputy Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said the exemption, effective June 1, was requested by leaders of the two states.

“We are confident that the Pan-Borneo Highway, once completed, will also reduce the cost of goods in Sabah and Sarawak, alongside the cabotage policy exemption and development in Sabah and Sarawak,” he said during the question and answer session at the Dewan Rakyat yesterday.

He was responding to a supplementary question from Datuk Rozman Isli (BN-Labuan).

Abdul Aziz said a working committee comprising the federal government and Sabah and Sarawak state government representatives was set up to assess the effectiveness of the cabotage policy exemption, with the findings to be used in determining the direction of the policy.

“The government has also allocated RM1.2 billion to upgrade the port in Sepanggar, Sabah to accommodate an expected increase in cargo,” he said. The cabotage policy exemption was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in May. — Bernama

Sabah sets up committee to study impact of cabotage policy exemption
August 10, 2017, Thursday


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah Infrastructure Development Ministry has set up a special committee to identify and evaluate comprehensively the impact on the decision to exempt Sabah from the cabotage policy, the State Assembly was told yesterday.

Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan said the Sabah Cabotage Policy Exemption Impact Monitoring Special Committee, which was formed following instruction from the state cabinet, is headed by him.

Pairin, who is also State Infrastructure Development Minister, said the special committee, comprising representatives from government departments and agencies, shipping agencies and stakeholders, held its first meeting on June 8.

“I believe the committee is the best platform to discuss and pick the best solutions to solve issues related to the impact of the cabotage policy exemption for Sabah, including high cost of living due to high shipping and logistics costs,” he said when responding to a question from Chan Foong Hin (DAP-Sri Tanjong).

Pairin said the Transport Ministry has agreed to set up a committee for Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan to discuss transportation issues following the exemption of the cabotage policy for Sabah on June 1. — Bernama

FGV eyes opportunities in ECRL project



Quote:
KUANTAN: Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) is keen to offer its expertise in providing an integrated logistics services with parties involved in the development of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project.

In a statement, FGV said through its logistics and others (LO) division, the group had recently invited a delegation from ECRL to visit its Felda Transport Services Kuantan Depot Open Yard Facility and Felda Johore-Bulkers Kuantan Warehouse in Kuantan Port, near Gebeng.


FGV officer-in-charge Datuk Khairil Anuar Aziz said FGV had the advantage to provide logistics services for the project as its facilities are either in or close to Kuantan Port as ECRL’s construction would be based in Kuantan before being expanded to Kelantan and Selangor

“We are looking to support the project in terms of providing transportation services to carry equipment and building materials along the entire stretch of the ECRL project. We can be amongst the one-stop logistic centres for the project,” he said.

“FGV has the experience and a proven track record in its ability to provide integrated logistics services such as for the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and other mega infrastructure projects,” Khairil said, adding that it is estimated that 10% of the seven-year construction period of the ECRL project would involve logistics support.

He said while the plantation and sugar divisions remained the core businesses for the group, the expansion in the LO Sector would provide a good supplementary income to the group.

“There is great potential for FGV’s logistics business to expand both locally and overseas and one of them is through strategic collaboration with leading companies in the related industry.

“This will generate more stable income to FGV and reduce dependency especially on the plantation sector and indirectly provide sustainable returns to shareholders,” Khairil said.

Five new ports to join China-Malaysia Port Alliance
BY VINCENT TAN


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Five new ports in Malaysia and China are set to join the China-Malaysia Port Alliance (CMPA).

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the Kemaman Port Authority, the Kuching Port Authority and the Sabah Ports Authority would be joining the alliance from the Malaysian side.

On the China side, Tianjin Port and Qingdao Port would be added, bringing the total number of ports in the alliance to 21.

"We will have a more comprehensive collaboration with ports from the peninsula, Sabah, Sarawak and China now," said Liow after officiating the CMPA's second annual meeting at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre here Monday morning.

In his opening speech, Liow said China has been Malaysia's largest trading partner since 2009, with trade between both countries amounting to RM240.91bil in 2016.

He added that the aim was to make Malaysia the logistics hub for the Asean region and to strengthen the ports' infrastructure to increase its cargo-handling capacity.

"The number of tourists from China is also increasing. We are targeting three million tourists this year, and possibly revise it to four million," said Liow.

Northport, Shin Yang and Harbour-Link sign strategic MoU
September 9, 2017, Saturday



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Northport (Malaysia) Bhd (Northport), Shin Yang Shipping Sdn Bhd and Harbour-Link Group Bhd, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a strategic alliance called The East Malaysia Network or TEAM Network.

MMC Corporation Bhd in a statement here said, the MoU was aimed at achieving economies of scale through the sharing of resources such as vessels, terminals arrangements and networks.

“It is also expected to increase shipping service frequency through a scheduled alignment between Shin Yang and Harbour-Link. With the consolidation of vessel capacity between the two lines, the pact will create greater economies of scale with the optimised deployment of vessels and a wider port coverage.

Meanwhile, Northport chief executive officer, Datuk Azman Shah Mohd Yusof said, the strength of Northport, Shin Yang and Harbour-Link would be consolidated to jointly and effectively manage the shipping industry demands through strategic planning of resources.

“Under the TEAM Network strategic alliance, Northport is expected to provide an efficient and effective port service and high terminal productivity. The alliance is also expected to benefit significantly from the synergies derived from within the MMC Ports’ group through its integrated logistics value proposition,” he added.

Northport, a subsidiary of MMC Port Holdings Bhd (a wholly-owned subsidiary of MMC Corporation) is involved in managing, developing and operating container ports and terminals in Malaysia.

Shin Yang Shipping is part of Shin Yang Group, a conglomerate based in Miri, Sarawak, which is involved in the domestic and international shipping, ship building, timber, property development, port to door logistics, haulage, warehouse, container depot, hotel, marine engineering, civil engineering and plantation.

MITI and Pos Malaysia to discuss setting up of e-commerce logistics hub
By ARFA YUNUS
September 12, 2017 @ 5:18pm


Quote:
NANNING: The International Trade and Industry Ministry (MITI) will meet with Pos Malaysia Bhd soon to discuss on the setting up of an e-commerce logistics hub in the country with the collaboration of China Post.

MITI's second minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan said, it is high time for Pos Malaysia to transform its operation into an e-commerce logistics, which is similar to China Post.

"When I return to Malaysia, I want to talk to Pos Malaysia immediately to convert Malaysia into an e-commerce logistics hub. I got this inspiration from the China Post," he told reporters after witnessing the signing of two memorandum of understanding (MoU) here today.

"Normally, logistic companies will go to places that they know they can make money from, but China Post goes to both the urban and rural areas to serve the poor. They have social responsibility," he said.

Earlier today, the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) signed a MoU in an effort to pave way for Malaysian enterprises to enter the China market.

The MoU which was signed between Matrade, China Post Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region Branch and KCO Logistics and Distribution Services Sdn Bhd is expected to further enhance market access of Malaysian companies, especially into the huge China's rural untapped market.

"The cooperative relationship between the mentioned parties are aimed to improve the business environment and promote more effective market access by Malaysian companies.

"This can be done through the establishment of Malaysia Pavilion in China Post e-commerce portal ule.com and marketed through China Post's offline stores by leveraging on China Post's platform and networks in China

"The area of cooperation includes the establishment and operation of Malaysia Pavilion in China Post's online and offline platforms," Ong added.

He explained that ule.com is a rural e-commerce platform connecting the offline outlets with online or mobile services and supported with the extensive logistics network of China Post.

He added, such effort will help boost the presence of Malaysian products and brands to tap into the China's market nationwide.

"As the second largest global economy with a total population of 1.37 billion people, China remained as our focus export major target due to its larger demand and offers vast business opportunities for Malaysian companies," Ong said.

Later in the afternoon, another MoU was signed between Hernan Corporation Sdn Bhd, a company that exports durian-based products, and Shanghai Miss Durian Food Co Ltd, a company that engages in import and export business.

The purpose for this MoU was to enable the supply of durian paste and durian-based products from Malaysia to China.

The MoUs were signed in conjunction with the 14th China-Asean Expo (CAEXPO) here.

The four-day expo, which is organised annually in Nanning since 2004, is a platform to promote cooperation between China and Asean in the fields of trade, investment and tourism.

The theme for this year’s CAEXPO is “Jointly Build the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, Promote Regional Economic Integration through tourism”.

Trade between Malaysia and China expanded by 27.7 per cent to RM163.02 billion for the first half of 2017, with higher imports from China such as petroleum products, electrical and electronic products as well as machinery, equipment and parts.

On Monday, Ong said bilateral trade between Malaysia and China is expected to increase to US$160 billion (RM671.7 billion) by 2020.

For last year, Ong said bilateral trade between the two countries was US$87 billion (RM365 billion), and expressed confident it would increase up to US$100 billion (RM420 billion) this year on improved global economy.

Thus, Malaysian companies should venture and utilise the automotive sector in China as the sector is huge and demanding. He said the Malaysian automotive market is smaller compared to China and had only recorded a sale of 580,000 units compared to China, which was 28 million units.

KKIP good for digital free trade zone
September 15, 2017, Friday


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP) could become a digital free trade zone (DFTZ) for e-commerce and online businesses, in line with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0.

It already had a strong foundation with existing businesses and capacity, said Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Raymond Tan Shu Kiah.

When met by reporters at the Industry 4.0 and DFTZ outreach programme yesterday, Raymond said KKIP would be a good ground for implementation, as business is already there.

“In order for Industry 4.0 to work, you must have the right place, the right foundation. It is basically a process of change, where business can grow bigger and go global.

“We are pretty close to achieving that because you cannot look at this whole development right from the very bottom. You must look at what business has already been developed in KKIP.

“There are 280 existing operators of various businesses. They are going slow, but in our revolution of a changed process, once they get into internet business, we will be able to raise all 280 businesses to a higher level,” he said.

Raymond, who is also Minister of Industrial Development, added that internet businesses and e-commerce are things that some of us were already engaged with, thus emphasising the importance of bringing such business operators together.

He further said it is important to introduce the DFTZ in order to encourage operators to go digital and be more aggressively into e-commerce.

“It should generate much more excitement and I’m looking at how we can enhance the internet service in KKIP. It needs to be enhanced with the right infrastructure of internet speed and accessibility.

“If we can enhance the infrastructure focused on a cluster of e-commerce operators in KKIP, I think that would, in a very short time, encourage more operators, entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to be engaged in driving industry 4.0.

“What we need to focus on is capacity building to encourage them to embrace Industry 4.0. Sabah does not want to be left out,” he added.

Earlier, SME Corporation Malaysia chairman Tan Sri Dr Mohamed Al Amin Abdul Majid said SMEs should not fear the changes needed, but instead be bold enough to make the changes.

He advised operators and entrepreneurs to start with the aim of solving an existing problem in the production process, as well as to approach training institutions such as the Penang Skills Development Centre (PSDC) and German-Malaysia Institute (GMI).

Mohamed added that with the DFTZ, SME Corp Malaysia aspired to double the export growth rate of SME goods to reach US$38 billion, create 60,000 jobs and facilitate US$65 billion worth of goods movement, all by 2025.

Accsoft Tech plans JV to develop e-commerce last mile delivery services
Anette Appaduray/theedgemarkets.com
September 15, 2017 20:16 pm MYT


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 15): IT specialist Accsoft Technology Bhd is looking to work together with a local firm that assembles and trades motorcycles to exploit market potential in relation to last mile delivery in the e-commerce industry.

It said it has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Malaysian Formula Bikes Sdn Bhd (MFB) today for the proposed collaboration.

MFB is the sole improter and assembler of Sanyang Motorcycle's brand of motorbikes in Malaysia.

“The MoU signed expresses intentions of both parties to collaborate together to exploit market potential in relation to last mile delivery within the e-commerce industry in light of the newly launched Malaysia's Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ),” the group said in a filing with the bourse this evening.

Accsoft will be providing, among others, the application technology and funding for the collaboration, while MFB will be supplying 1,000 motorcycles and riders, as well as operational management, the group said.

Both parties agreed that "commencement of further concrete negotiations on the collaboration will be finalised within 30 days" of the preliminary agreement.

“We believe that this partnership with MFB will give Accsoft an advantageous platform to expand last mile delivery in relation to e-commerce business in Malaysia, which is in line with the Government’s focus on the digital free trade zone,” said the group’s Executive Director Zhu GuoHe in a separate statement.

Accsoft’s shares closed unchanged today at 72.5 sen, for a market capitalisation of RM603.8 million.

Malaysian ports remain efficient, says Liow

Quote:
PUTRAJAYA: Malaysian ports are among the most efficient in the world with the capability to meet the requirements of shipping lines at very competitive charges, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

The country's competitiveness, particularly Port Klang, remains unaffected despite the move by Ocean Alliance, led by CMA CGM, to relocate their operations to the Port of Singapore.

"It is only a short-term ripple effect due to the move by Ocean Alliance, and mergers and acquisitions of CMA CGM,” he said in a statement issued after the 3rd National Logistics Task Force Meeting on Thursday.

Liow added that with two out of three shipping alliances operating in Singapore, shipping lines would find it more challenging to operate, especially transhipment, in the island nation.

"It makes more sense for each of the alliance to locate its hub in different ports so that it can compete leveraging on the strength of its supply chain.

“But now, they are competing within a single hub in the same port without deriving any strategic advantage. Instead of having a pool each for themselves, they are now competing within a single pool. "It is not far-fetched to say that with shipping lines intensifying competition against one another in Singapore, Port Klang will potentially become an attractive alternative hub in the future. It is a golden opportunity for shipping lines," he added.

In addition, Liow pointed out that Malaysian ports were expected to grow exponentially with a steady increase in total trade.

"In 2016, our total trade stood at RM1.48 trillion while for the first seven months up to July 2017, it has surpassed RM1 trillion, the fastest pace ever.

“Total indigenous throughput for the first eight months in 2017 for Port Klang grew 5.5 per cent to 2.85 million twenty equivalent units (TEUs) against 2.70 million TEUs recorded in the same period in 2016,” the transport minister said .

Also, cargo volume was expected to increase with the setting up of regional distribution centres in the vicinity of the ports.

In addition, our ports have stayed focused on attracting cargo from the South East Asia region, he said.

On the Malaysia Shipping Masterplan, Liow was confident that it would bring the shipping industry to greater heights. Liow said he would chair the Malaysia Shipping Council which has been entrusted to look into re-energising the Malaysian shipping industry towards a brighter future.

Touching on measures to improve Malaysia’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI), he said the NLTF would collaborate with the Malaysia Productivity Corporation to address the challenges and bottlenecks in the logistics and trade facilitation sectors.

"We will form focus groups which will deliberate and present proposals to the NLTF. Hopefully, this structured approach can help improve our LPI rankings in future," Liow said.

On the RM30 million last-mile connectivity to Port Klang Initiative to improve the quality of roads to cater for heavy vehicles operating in the vicinity of Port Klang, the minister thanked the Public Works Department and agencies involved for the on-schedule implementation of the project which was expected to complete next month.

On the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) located in KLIA Aeropolis, Liow urged MAHB to closely monitor the upgrading work at the former Low Cost Carrier Terminal to ensure it was completed on time and operational by year-end.

"Jack Ma (Alibaba Founder) will be visiting Malaysia in November. We must be prepared to leverage on his visit, particularly the state of readiness of DFTZ,", Liow added.

Gov't to study effects of east M'sia cabotage policy exemption
By OLIVIA MIWIL - October 2, 2017 @ 2:04pm

Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The federal government will take up to two years to study the effectiveness of the recently-abolished cabotage policy in reducing the prices of goods in east Malaysia and Labuan.

Deputy Transport minister Datuk Abd Aziz Kaprawi said a task force has been set up to conduct the analysis.

“The government exempted the cabotage policy following requests from local leaders (on the effects of the policy) on prices.

“However, some (players in the) local shipping industry (have complained that they have been negatively) affected by the exemption,” Abd Aziz said, adding that the analysis will also look into whether the policy exemption has had an effect on prices.

He was speaking at a press conference after launching the 10th Cooperation Forum for Littoral States and User States in the Straits of Melaka and Singapore here.

In May this year, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak announced that cargo vessels heading from Peninsular Malaysia to east Malaysia and Labuan will be exempted from the cabotage policy.

Northport's volume to pick up again in Q4
By Farah Adilla - October 5, 2017 @ 6:47pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Northport (Malaysia) Bhd is unfazed by the volume weakness recorded in the first half of the year, and expects volume to pick up again in the fourth quarter.

Chief executive officer Datuk Azman Shah Mohd Yusof said Northport is confident that the Q4 volume will be driven fully by domestic volume and fruition of the agreement it entered with Weifang Sime Darby Port Co Ltd earlier in May.

“Wesports already announced that it expects to see some improvement in Q4, the time where the activity is peaking. There is always a cycle and we have to weather the storm and see how it goes for the rest of the year, but we are hopeful.

“We expect slowdown to continue in September and October as there are many holidays and we are currently now in the middle of the golden week in China. But overall, we expect organic growth to remain sustainable and going to reflect to better volume in Q4,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the 56th FIATA World Congress here yesterday.

In May this year, Northport signed a memorandum of understanding with Weifang to develop a sister port relationship which will see both ports cooperate in port management and bilateral halal trade shipment.

It was earlier reported that data compiled from Northport and Westports showed that after nearly four years of increasing loads, cargo throughput was down a sharp 8.4 per cent in the second quarter of the year to three million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). This followed a minimal growth of 0.9 per cent in teh first quarter.

Industry officials were reported saying that Malaysia’s main shipping hub is taking a hit this year as major shipping companies shift their operations to Singapore under new alliance agreements.

Port Klang Authority chairman Tan Sri Kong Cho Ha said the regulator firmly believes that despite the stiff competition from Singapore, Malaysian ports remains competitive and attractive as a hub.

He urged the ports to be more aggressive in their discussions with the shipping alliances to win back business.

“Moving forward, it is going to be good. They (port operators) need to start talking more aggressively to shipping alliances. As far as competitiveness, our facilities and efficiency are still at par with Singapore,” he said.

However, following the slowdown this year, Kong said the authority expects volume to drop by one million TEUs for the full-year.

This is based on the drop of seven per cent in volume recorded from January to September, compared to the growth of 10.8 per cent recorded during the same period last year.

Liow: Govt backs logistics sector growth
By Farah Adilla - October 5, 2017 @ 2:30pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The government remains committed to continuously support the growth of the logistics sector and in opening more doors to engage local and international players to serve the industry.

Transport minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the commitment was proven through several initiatives implemented in the past years - both on papers and infrastructure developments - especially in riding on the global shift towards digital.

“Despite being on track to reinvigorate the logistics industry, we are also equally aware of the need to ensure the sustainability of the sector.

“The first of its kind, the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ), will create this much-needed disruptive innovation for the logistics ecosystem,” he said in his speech at the 56th FIATA World Congress opening ceremony here today.

He said upon the completion of DFTZ by 2025, the e-fulfilment hub is anticipated to handle and move up to US$65 billion (RM280.8 billion) worth of goods around the Asean region.

He said today, Malaysian ports are equipped with world-class facilities and well connected with other modes of transportation, making movement of goods seamless and efficient.

These include future expansion of airports, developments of several ports including development of the third terminal of Port Klang in Carey Island, the new Melaka Gateway Port in Melaka, the redevelopment of Sepanggar Port in Kota Kinabalu and the development of the new mega port in Kuantan.

“Beyond that, Malaysia is now actively embarking on massive rail projects that will undoubtedly be a significant catalyst to the logistics industry,” he said.

Liow mentioned the electrified double track project from Kuala Lumpur to Padang Besar in the north, the Gemas - Johor Bharu double track project connecting Kuala Lumpur to the sothern peninsular, and the recently launched East Coast Rail Link connecting east coast states to Port Klang as well as the High Speed Rail from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore.

“Once completed, I can guarantee we will have the best network of rail, road, sea and air transport to support the fast growing logistics industry,” he said.


Malaysia’s current investment in logistics infrastructure amounts to nearly RM15 billion in four sub-sectors - rail, road, maritime and aviation.

“We are currently embarking on future massive infrastructure projects to improve our logistics capabilities estimated to be worth more than RM100 billion,” he said.

Meanwhile, Liow said the Logitics and Trade Facilitation Master Plan (LTFM) Phase 1: Debottlenecking has been successfully implemented in 2016, achieving an impressive 85 per cent performance.

In 2015, Malaysia launched its five-year LTFM led by the Ministry of Transport in its effort to drive greater efficiencies in the economy and to support the National Transformation Agenda.

These initiatives have started to show positive impacts to Malaysia’s logistics sector with improved efficiency and delivery, in line with the nation’s aspiration to be the preferred logistics gateway to Asia.

Big role for Sapangar certain
Published on: Saturday, October 14, 2017


Quote:
Kota Kinabalu: The Sapangar Bay Container Port is on its way to realise its aspiration of becoming a transshipment hub of the east, resulting from Sabah's participation in the port alliance between China and Malaysia.

Deputy Chief Minister cum Infrastructure Development Minister Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan said the Government is currently waiting for minutes of the alliance's recent conference before deciding on how to conduct a meticulous follow-up on the matter.

"We attended the last conference and hope it will help in the progress of the ports in Sabah," he said after a courtesy call on him by Liang Caide, the Consul General of the Republic of China in Kota Kinabalu, Friday.

To a question on what will be the next step if Sapangar Port were to officially join the alliance, Pairin said they intend to introduce and acquaint with the influential members and big players of the alliance from China.

"We will discuss with the Transport Minister (Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai) so that we'll know who to approach, apart from the players who are already interested in what we have.

"From there, we can co-ordinate all efforts to ensure our objective to develop Sapangar Port as a key transshipment hub will be realised as soon as possible," he added.

Through these connections, the move to develop the port will be clearer as to where they should go about from then on, he said.

"There is already an interested investor looking into developments for the port and now we just have to wait for the outcome of the conference with the alliance before making a follow-up with the Minister (Liow)," he said.

During the courtesy visit, the Consul General envisioned all the possible support China could offer to develop the State and Pairin agreed as the country is a huge platform, which has the expertise and experience to assist the development of Sabah.

He said the State has always maintained a good relationship with China even before the courtesy visit and "this visit will only strengthen the bond we have."

"A lot of the infrastructure development in Sarawak was supported by China whereas in Sabah we usually negotiated with the Federal Government through the Transport Ministry.

"The Ministry has helped us a great deal in bringing our Sapangar Port to greater heights and this proves how much importance we place on the port," he said.

The development of the port will also rely on the role of BIMP-EAGA as the port is located at the centre of the region and would enable transhipment services for north Asian economic powers such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China.

With all these efforts, he envisioned a robust growth for the port. - Iffah Dilaney

Need for regulatory body on ports freight charges
14th October, 2017
By PAUL MU


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: There is a need to set up a regulatory body to regulate the ports freight charges imposed by the strong shipping companies.

Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan said the shipping companies are very strong and they have created a cartel to dictate the charges on the ports.

“If I am not mistaken, we only have about seven shipping companies with one from Sabah,” Pairin told reporters after he welcomed a courtesy call from Consulate General of China in Sabah, Liang Caide at his ministry office in Sembulan here yesterday.

Pairin who is also Infrastructure Development Minister said the high port charges have contributed to the high cost of goods shipped to Sabah which the consumers have to absorb.

And this is a dilemma that the special committee set up to study the implications of the cabotage exemption policy will look into, said Pairin who chaired the committee.

The committee which was set up in June this year will be having a second follow-up meeting soon to finalise the report, he disclosed.

“The high cost of goods in Sabah is not purely attributed by the cabotage policy, hopefully something positive will come out, as this is what we supposed to be looking for,” said Pairin.

On the Malaysia-China Port Alliance which was forged in Nov 2015, he said the officers from Sabah has been sent to Kuala Lumpur to attend a meeting recently as Sepanggar Port was one of the latest inclusions in the alliance.

“Now we are waiting for the minutes of the meeting as we need to have the details before we proceed with our follow-up action,” said Pairin.

“I have been told, there are lots of big companies from the China side, so we have to introduce ourselves to them and coordinate all efforts to realise the objective to make Sepanggar Port as the transshipment hub for the east including the BIMP-EAGA region,” he added.

He said the State Government had discussed the matter with the federal government where Transport Minister Dato’ Sri Liow Tiong Lai had told them the Sepanggar Port will be upgraded.

During the courtesy call, Pairin said Liang has touched on several issues including the development of railway in which China had the expertise.

“We are now improving our railway services, and like we saw in peninsula the railway was upgraded, we also want to expand our railway further
,” he said.

Pairin also accepted the invitation from Liang to visit China’s One Belt, One Road initiative.

“So I welcome the consul general, I was invited to visit China and hopefully we will have the opportunity go together with the Chief Minister,” said Pairin.

He said the meeting with Liang was timely and important as they got to know each other better especially their roles and responsibilities.

“Liang explained what they can help because China has the experience and expertise as well as economically strong,” he said.

We will focus on developing the infrastructures in Sabah as China has helped Sarawak to develop their water supply, he said.

No room for expansion at KK Port
Published on: Tuesday, October 17, 2017


Quote:
Kota Kinabalu: Managing Director of Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd (SPSB), Ng Kiat Min, touching on future plans to relocate general cargo at Kota Kinabalu Port to Sapangar Bay, lamented that currently, KK Port is operating on limited land space as partial area has been overtaken for the City's development projects.

This, she pointed out, poses a challenge for KK port as it is the receiving point for most of the State's industrial and construction cargo as well as being a Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO or ro-ro) hub.

"Nevertheless, there is a bigger and brighter picture ahead of us. With the relocation of general cargo to Sapangar, Sabah Ports' plan to create an integrated linkage of containers, liquid and general cargo will finally materialise."

SPSB is a 100pc-owned subsidiary of Suria Capital Holdings Bhd which has been listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia since 1996. The State Government has 51pc stake in Suria.

The Sabah Ports Operations previously within the jurisdiction of the Sabah Ports Authority (SPA) were transferred over to SPSB since 2004 via a privatisation exercise.

SPSB as the ports operator works hand in hand with SPA who is the regulator cum land lord.

Since taking over the port operation from SPA in 2004, Sabah Ports has continuously strived to improve port performance and develop the State's port industry.

While conceding that Sabah Ports has made substantial progress, Ng asserted that it will continue to pursue the vision of being the ports of preference, especially in the BIMP-EAGA.

"With this aspiration, there is a need for us, as a port, to innovate within and build resilience against threats and competition. As much as we try to provide the best service for our customers, we are only able to do that by ensuring we can provide value.

"As Sapangar Bay Container Port (SBCP) positions itself to be a transhipment hub, we have also invested in significant upgrades to our operational systems and overall yard planning," she said.

According to the SPSB Managing Director, they have embarked upon a major IT upgrade at SBCP, being the first among our container port line-up to be fitted with the Autostore Terminal Operating System (TOS).

The TOS is an integrated, total tracking system for container movement inside the port and provides customers with access to real time tracking of containers.

"This upgrade is expected to enhance the handling process by speeding up locating and transferring of containers.

We are still exploring the full capabilities of the TOS system, and phase by phase, we shall add on more functions such as the vehicle booking system and electronic data interchange (EDI) to provide customers with flexible solutions for their business."

SBCP's fleet of machinery has also been further strengthened with the delivery of eight prime movers, four electronic RTGs and two Quay cranes. Despite SBCP's best efforts, Ng acknowledged its limitations, saying the insufficient yard space is an issue and congestion at berth still occurs from time to time.

"We will continue to work hard to offer solutions to our customers and minimise disruptions.

Please bear with us as SPSB is committed to delivering its obligation as a service provider."

Geographically, Sabah is well-positioned for regional shipping due to its proximity to North Asian countries and relatively focal location among the countries of Brunei, Indonesia and Philippines.

Therefore, she said, Sabah has a high potential of becoming the cargo gateway for East Malaysia and the larger Brunei Indonesia -Malaysia-Philippines East Asean Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA).

But then, Sabah remains unattractive for foreign investment in its economic and industrial development. Why?

Ng attributed this phenomenon to the high cost of doing business caused mainly by the lack of direct shipping line calls.

"Needless to say, Sabah Ports plays an important role in supporting the State's economy as shipping is the main means of transporting import and export commodities and various goods to and from the State.

"As the gateway for trade, it is important for Sabah Ports to have the strong support of the government and the industry. It is in the ports' best interest to forge co-operations and friendships as well as comply with the rules set by relevant authorities. Mutual respect for each other is important to ensure we achieve our common goal, which is to make a contribution to the State's economic wellbeing," she explained.

"As a port operator, we see the ports being more than a mere transit point for cargo.

We play a role towards supporting the State's economic ambition by involving ourselves in platforms that promote manufacturing and industrial growth and more importantly, facilitating connectivity for local businesses to go global."

The occasion was dedicated to Sabah Ports' west coast ports' top customers, business partners as well as agencies and associations who are important to SPSB.

"Tonight Sabah Ports is honoured to host a dinner in appreciation to those who have supported us throughout our journey as a port service provider," she said.

Also present were Chairman of Suria Capital Holdings Berhad, Datuk Hj Faisyal Datuk Yusof Hamdain Diego, Chairman of Sabah Ports Authority, Senator Datuk Hj Kadzim M. Yahya, Chief Operating Officer of Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd, Mohd Sahid Hj Nawab Khan and General Manager of Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd, Siti Noraishah Azizan. - Mary Chin
