Published: August 1, 2018 Content info: 131 Pages
Description

The Malaysia road freight transport market is expected to expand due to growing e-commerce marketplace in the country. Developing land infrastructure in line with government's eleventh Malaysian plan and IMP3 2006 - 2020 focusing heavily on trade. From a majorly agriculture-based economy, expansion has proceeded to the degree that manufacturing is gradually emerging as a leading sector. Halal logistics has become an important part of freight and logistics in Malaysia. Malaysia's trade surplus amounted to around 22.69 billion U.S. dollars in 2017. The growing trade, especially with neighboring countries, is expected to further boost the Malaysia road freight transport market.

Intermodal Transportation Complimenting Road Freight Market

The railroad system for a port to hinterland freight in Malaysia is important. Road linkage in Malaysia covers 210 658 kilometers, of which 79 percent is paved, and 1969 km are expressways. Furthermore, rail tracks cover 2,262 km of the Malaysian peninsula. The electrified double tracks connect Ipoh-Padang Besar and Seremban-Gemas covering a large portion of dry ports, ICTs seaports, and freight terminals. Penang, Johor, and Klang being important cities for Malaysian seaports. The Malaysian road system facilitates almost 80 percent of freight logistics with the remaining portion catered by railways. Road networks connect port Klang, PTP, and Penang Port to and from the hinterland. Port Klang has a sufficient road network to connect it with every region in Malaysia such as the North-South Expressway, Klang Valley Expressway and Federal Highway 2. PTP is connected to Singapore and the main capital of Malaysia through the North-South Highway Link and Malaysia-Singapore Second Link respectively while Penang Port can be accessed through the North-South and East-West highways. Thus the development of railways in Malaysia will further boost the road freight system to increase the connectivity across the hinterland.

Government and private sector initiatives and expenditure on intermodal infrastructure have led to numerous economic benefits for Malaysia. For example, land bridging has reduced the transit time of freight of Malaysia to Bangkok from 5 days via a sea feeder to 2.5 days via rail. It is estimated that freight costs in the above scenario are 30% lower by rail. It also offers great potential in attracting motor vehicles and refrigerated cargoes from Bangkok - which, in turn, would be shipped out of Port Klang. Flow-on effects of the improvement in intermodal infrastructure have allowed Malaysia to support the distribution activities across the ports and ICDs. Furthermore, it has eased pressure and lowered the dwelling time of containers during peak hours.
