Nippon Express (Malaysia) completes construction of Shah Alam Logistics Center

Designed to meet a diversity of logistics needs for halal, pharmaceutical and other products

Nippon Express (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (Akiya Hayase, President), a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (Mitsuru Saito, President), has completed construction of the Shah Alam Logistics Center, the Nippon Express Group's most extensive single-structure multifunctional logistics warehouse outside Japan, in the Shah Alam Industrial Park in the Malaysian state of Selangor, and the Center will begin operations from Monday, March 9.

A rise in Malaysia's national income has driven remarkable growth in personal consumption, and the increased distribution of consumer goods has led to expectations of growing needs for more sophisticated domestic logistics and warehousing services.

The Shah Alam Industrial Park that hosts this newly opened Center is located near the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's largest consumption area, and very favorably situated as a logistics hub, with easy access to Malaysia's main sea gateway Port Klang and to Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
