We hope to be able to tap into the market to achieve the national target of RM50 billion halal export by 2020.”
“We are now able to provide the logistics by maintaining the halal integrity of the shipment throughout the supply chain. MAB Kargo also aims at creating a competitive advantage for the country as the main halal corridor that would enhance trade network linking halal business worldwide,” he added.
With this newly launched service, MAB Kargo offers hygenic and secure movement, storage and handling of both food and non-food material.
