KUCHING: Pos Logistics Bhd (PLB) is now serving as Fujian Pacific Network Technology Co Ltd (FPNT)’s exclusive and total e-commerce logistics services provider in Southeast Asia.

This was indicated from the signing of a memorandum of collaboration (MoC) between Pos Malaysia Bhd (Pos Malaysia) and FPNT at a hotel here yesterday.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan together with Standing Committee of China Provincial Committee (CPC) Fujian Provincial Committee Secretary-General Liang Jianyong witnessed the ceremony.

“Pos Logistics’ collaboration with FPNT is a significant part of our growth trajectory journey in the e-commerce segment, as well as being part of our long-standing strategy to be an exclusive and total e-commerce logistics services provider in the Southeast Asian region and other countries in the  near future.

“The collaboration will enable Pos Logistics to be an international servicing hub, offering services such as transhipment, drop-shipping and freight forwarding,” Shukrie said in a statement, adding that he was pleased with the strategic collaboration which would strengthen Pos Malaysia’s presence in the e-commerce drop-shipping and transhipment service business for products originating from China.

“We in Pos Malaysia are fully committed and will intensify our efforts in becoming a full-fledged e-commerce and logistics provider in the marketplace.

“My team and I will continue to put in place the building blocks to help us achieve our ambitions and secure Pos Malaysia’s sustainable growth for the long-term,” added Shukrie.
