This is planned to be achieved through the introduction of sustainable measures aimed at removing competitive disparities and improving capabilities of Malaysian ship-owners, maritime human resources, and maritime ancillary services to meet domestic and regional shipping needs.
Increase in Demand for Cold Chain Operations: Cold Chain usage in Malaysia has increased due to the importance of maintaining optimal temperatures, especially for the postharvest or post-production temperatures sensitive goods. It is also a derived demand from the Halal logistics sectors. To maintain the Halal assurance for Halal products, utilizing a controlled temperature is one of the characteristics of a Halal supply chain foundation. The temperature-controlled warehouse is a value-added service to the Halal logistics industry in Malaysia since temperature breakdowns during halal meat handling is a significant problem being faced by the industry.
Growth of Integrated Logistics: TASCO has acquired two major cold storage companies Gold Cold & MILS and Hyper cold since 2016. These mergers are leading to the establishment of a bigger player thus eliminating the need of outsourcing (4PL). Moreover, given the trend, more number of small cold companies are expected to merge with bigger players contributing to the expansion of integrated logistics.
