Freight forwarding company Kintetsu World Express (Malaysia) announced that it opened on February 1, 2021 a new warehouse in the Free Commercial Zone (FCZ) of Penang International Airport in Malaysia.
Penang is known as an investment site for foreign-based corporations in Malaysia and as a center for electronics and medical equipment manufacturers.
The 9,234-square-meter warehouse, called KWE Penang Logistics Centre, is within one hour by truck from surrounding major industrial parks, said KWE in a release.
As a warehouse for non-residents, KWE Malaysia can store and manage products and materials for corporations that have no physical presence in Malaysia, and provide logistics service to customers with vendor managed inventory and just-in-time delivery needs.
Part of the warehouse area is temperature-controlled, suitable for handling precision electronic equipment, medical equipment, and other freight requiring specific temperature and humidity levels.
KWE Malaysia runs a truck shuttle between Penang and Kuala Lumpur, and is also expanding transshipment to third countries via Malaysia.
The launch of the Penang warehouse follows the opening in August 2020 by KWE China of a new air import warehouse in Shanghai.
The warehouse is located 3 kilometers from Shanghai Pudong Airport and has a floor space of about 9,000 square meters, 1.7 times larger than the old warehouse.
