Other Services – Transport


The transport services sub-sector encompasses a diverse range of components, including maritime transport, aviation, and the construction and maintenance of highways.


Malaysia is committed to offering safe, reliable, affordable, and sustainable transport services. Establishing an excellent transport system is crucial for the nation’s path to becoming a high-income country.


Malaysia’s National Transport Policy 2019-2030 (NTP) demonstrates this commitment, charting strategies for economic competitiveness, social inclusivity, accessibility, and environmental preservation. The NTP aims to strengthen transport infrastructure and ensure sustainable development.

Notable Infrastructure Projects

The East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), a 665-kilometre railway connecting Malaysia’s East and West Coasts, is a significant national infrastructure project. This “land bridge” between Port Klang and Kuantan Port is expected to boost international trade, provide an alternative maritime route for cargo and passengers, and reduce travel time between Kota Bharu and Putrajaya to about four hours.


The ECRL will connect with various rail services, such as ERL, MRT2, and KTMB, and is expected to drive Economic Accelerator Projects (EAPs). MIDA has a dedicated team overseeing EAP implementation, engaging with stakeholders including State Governments, Ministries, Agencies, business chambers, and developers.
