Schenker’s complete range of services is designed to meet logistics and transportation demand, including customs clearance, warehousing and distribution. In Malaysia, the company offers a full range of logistics services for its global, regional and local customers.
Schenker was established in Malaysia in 1979 but over the years, the company has grown rapidly and today employs 320 full-time staff. Schenker is headquartered in Subang Jaya, with branches in Port Klang, KLIA, Penang, Kulim, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Ipoh and Kuantan.
“We believe that a strong global network is a very important competitive advantage in the logistics industry and Malaysia is a key market in the Asian Region”, says Wolfgang Laabs, Managing Director, Schenker Logistics (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd. “Malaysia’s continuous growth and the transition of the Malaysian economy into an export-driven economy, spurred on by high technology, knowledge-based and capital-intensive industries proved our decision to be right.”
The company is proud of its bonded facility in Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Johor (PTP). This facility is located only 50 metres away from the main container yard and catering for dangerous goods (DG) (except class 1 and 3), as well as temperature-sensitive cargo. The company views the Port of Tanjung Pelepas as a suitable location for customers wishing to use PTP as a regional distribution centre.
