Nippon Express is building a new warehouse in Malaysia.
The company held a groundbreaking ceremony recently for a new warehouse to be built in the Shah Alam Industrial Park in Selangor Province.
Malaysia’s economy has maintained a steady growth rate of about 5 per cent in recent years.
Personal consumption has also grown considerably due to rising national income, and demand for domestic logistics and warehousing is expected to climb as the volume of consumer goods on the market expands.
The Shah Alam Industrial Park is near the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s largest market, and easy access to the major seaport of Port Klang and to Kuala Lumpur International Airport makes this a favorable location for a logistics hub.
Nippon Express Malaysia decided to establish this new facility to meet the increasingly sophisticated needs of its customers for such services as domestic sales logistics, manufacturing logistics just-in-time delivery, temperature-controlled storage using air-conditioned facilities and storage/distribution of halal products.
Nippon Express says it will continue to strengthen its logistics functions in the South Asia region to keep pace with the region’s anticipated growth and to meet the full range of its customer needs as it strives to expand its global logistics business.
