STRONG PRESENCE: Company says its RM2.7m depot in Sabah is part of commitment to grow Malaysian market
TNT Express Malaysia, which opened its new RM2.7 million new depot here recently, is committed to growing its business in the country.
Its managing director (Malaysia and Brunei ) Chong Siang Chung said the company's 11th depot will be able to provide international and parcel express delivery to and from more than 200 countries to businesses in Sabah.
"We are committed to invest and grow our markets in the peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak. This investment demonstrates our long-term confidence in and commitment to the Malaysian economy, Sabah in particular," Chong said here recently.
Chong said Sabah is experiencing enormous growth in various industries ranging from oil and gas, tourism, service segment and other downstream industries.
This has led to a steep rise in demand for express delivery and logistics services, he added.
"We have been asked, especially from those in the peninsula and internationally, to have a better presence in Sabah and Sarawak. We have a depot in Kuching and now, here. Based on the microeconomic in Kota Kinabalu, it is a best place to invest," he said.
He said the new depot, located minutes from Kota Kinabalu International Airport, will enable businesses in the state to have direct access to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, which serves as one of TNT's main international gateways.
"They will also have indirect access to the main international hubs in Asia and Europe through TNT's road-air connectivity network (Asia Air network, Asia Road Network, and European Air Network)," Chong added.
