UTi Worldwide expands presence in Malaysia

UTi Worldwide announced that it has expanded its freight forwarding footprint in Malaysia by combining the offices at Kualar Lumpur and Port Klang at a new facility in Port Klang and with the opening of a new office in Kuantan.

“Our growth in footprint and investment in this new facility in Port Klang and our new office in Kuantan reflect the momentum that our business in Malaysia has seen over the last two years. Some of this is coming from our strategic interest in expanding into the oil, gas and energy market and another is coming from our belief in the long term economy and role Malaysia will play in the ASEAN Economic Community in the long term,” said Ditlev Blicher, UTi President Freight Forwarding.

“We created synergy and efficiencies for UTi and our clients with our teams and management now sitting in one location while serving clients in both locations,” said Vikram Paul, UTi Regional Vice President South East Asia. “This new location gives us an optimal presence in Malaysia and will allow us to expand with a more competitive position in human resources and real estate.”
