PETALING JAYA, April 20 (Bernama) — National container haulier and logistics services provider Kontena Nasional’s Petaling Jaya branch has been certified as a Halal logistics service provider in warehousing and transport by the Islamic Development Department of Malaysia (Jakim).
With the growing international demand for Halal products, Kontena Nasional hopes to position itself as the preferred ancillary service provider in the country, thus filling the gap in the entire Halal production and distribution chain.
With this certification by Jakim, Kontena Nasional has an added advantage of offering a complete Halal service package to its customers.
Services in the package will include Halal storage and warehousing, both containerized and conventional Halal transportation, Halal distribution, Halal shipping, Halal freighting for sea and air cargo, samak service for containers, customs facilities and other Halal value-added services.
According to Kontena Nasional’s chief executive officer Hood Osman, with this certification, Kontena Nasional aspires to become Malaysia’s main total logistics provider in the industry, especially on Halal trade facilitation.
All operating departments of Kontena Nasional throughout Malaysia are already ISO-certified.
Kontena Nasional is a subsidiary of NCB Holdings, with Northport being its sister company.
Permodalan Nasional Bhd holds a major stake in NCB Holdings, which is also listed on Bursa Malaysia.
