Message from the Chairman of Shipping Association Malaysia (SAM)
It gives me immense pleasure, in my capacity as Chairman of Shipping Association Malaysia (SAM)
to pen a message in conjunction with the launch of Malaysia Logistics Directory 2018/2019 by
Marshall Cavendish (M) Sdn Bhd. All of us from SAM would like to convey our appreciation to the publisher for the continued dedication and hard work in promoting the Malaysian logistics and related industries through this directory.
Logistics has come a long way to emerge as a crucial economic sector from merely a supporting industry in the past. Today, it is one of the most important factors that determines the competitiveness and attractiveness of a country. Part of Malaysia’s success as one of the top trading nations in the world is its ability to offer comprehensive, high quality, reliable and competitive logistics infrastructure
Indeed, the Malaysian logistics industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the years alongside the country’s booming economy. This is reflected in the growing number of companies being featured in
the Malaysian Logistics Directory. The resulting increase in competition will encourage players to be more innovative in offering logistics solutions, focusing on adding value to the supply chain rather than viewing logistics as a standalone function.
I am convinced the Malaysia Logistics Directory will help pave the way for greater progress and development in the Malaysian logistics and related industries. I hope the information in this directory
can facilitate better decision making and enable readers to find what they need. Before ending this message, I would like to once again congratulate the publisher for the job well done and may this directory continue to enjoy great success in many years to come.
Mr. Ooi Lean Hin
The Chairman of Shipping Association Malaysia (SAM)
