Nippon Express Malaysia to build new warehouse in Shah Alam Industrial Park
June 14, 2018: On May 9, Nippon Express (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd, a local subsidiary of Nippon Express, held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new warehouse to be built in the Shah Alam Industrial Park in Selangor Province.
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.
The company 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.
The logistics major will continue to strengthen its presence 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.
Malaysia's economy has maintained a steady growth rate of about 5 percent in recent years. Personal consumption has also grown considerably due to rising national income, and demand for domestic logistics/warehousing is expected to surge as the volume of consumer goods in the market expands.
