Thanks to overseas partner for trusting us in ensuring the safe and prompt arrival of these donation items.
July 2020 - 18 ton of Nitrile Gloves from KL to France
Malaysia being one of the largest gloves exporters in the world is definitely experiencing the boost in gloves export. Thanks to local clients and overseas partners, we have also handled several large shipments of exporting nitrile gloves, primarily via air freight. The most recent case is a shipment comprising 4000 cartons of gloves being own from Kuala Lumpur to France.
August 2020 - Import of Raw Materials for the Manufacturing of PPEs
We have a new client that is importing a lot of raw materials from India to supply to manufacturers of personal protection equipment. This is largely due to the surge in medical demand for PPEs. The first shipment that we handled was 20 containers and there will be more to come. We’re the appointed freight forwarder to undertake the customs clearance, unstuffing of containers in our warehouse and distribution to the manufacturers all over Malaysia. Most of the finished products will be used in local hospitals while partially will be exported out to USA and Europe.
