The explosive growth of e-Commerce encourages logistic companies in Malaysia to go through a series of digital evolution in their operations to form seamless e-fulfilment hubs in the country to serve global supply chain activities efficiently. Since the establishment of the National E-Commerce Strategic Roadmap (NESR), a total of 11 e-fulfilment projects were approved up till 2020.

Cold Chain Logistics

Cold chain logistics involves the transportation and storage of temperature-sensitive products through thermal and refrigerated packaging methods.

MIDA encourages logistic companies to diversify into cold chain logistics. Over the years, MIDA has assisted cold chain logistic companies such as ICCL, CCN, Saddad Resources Sdn Bhd and Gold Cold Logistics Sdn Bhd to grow their business extensively.

Future Trend of Logistics

In light of the explosive growth of Industry 4.0 technologies in the region,  Malaysia’s logistics industry is well-positioned to capitalise on the evolving digital landscape.

Today’s online consumers not only have high expectations on the quality and flexibility of services, they also demand unique and personalised options. Hence, going digital is not an option for the logistics industry. Many logistic companies are now applying the elements of automation, robotics, Internet of Things (IOT), Big Data Analytics, cloud-based computing and in-house software systems in their daily operations to stay ahead and meet the demands of their domestic and global clients.
