JP Logistics Sdn Bhd, a local company which has played a prominent role in handling what is known as super heavy-lift and oversized (SHLO) shipments, has bagged an award for Malaysia’s fast-moving companies.

The Johor Port Bhd subsidiary clinched SME 100 Awards 2017’s “Malaysia’s Fast-Moving Companies”.

JPLogistics was recognised for its performance as a logistics solutions company, providing services ranging from port services, supply chain services, marine and shipping, freight management, as well as project logistics.

It also provides other value-added services with well-equipped and diversified facilities and expertise, according to a statement from the award organiser.

SME 100 Awards is an annual recognition programme organised by SME Magazine which looks at some of the fastest moving businesses of the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector. It also recognises businesses in lucrative and dynamic markets.

The awards identify and recognise Malaysia’s best fast-moving SMEs with focus on growth — seen in turnover, profit and market share — and resilience as seen in best practices, sustainability and vision.

JPLogistics operations head Yusmin Zuhairi Adnan received the award on behalf of the company.

Also present at the award ceremony were Second International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan and former Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Mohamad Hanadzlah.

“We are truly honoured to receive this award as it signifies JPLogistics’ unwavering commitment in raising higher standards to provide value-added quality services for our customers,” said Johor Port chairman Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh.

He said JPLogistics played a prominent role in specialised project logistics services involving logistics management and transportation of SHLO shipments.

Additionally, he said JPLogistics has played a major role in providing logistics services to the Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development project, Tanjung Bin power plant and several other mega projects in Malaysia.

“JP Logistics’ company vision is to be the preferred partner of total logistics solutions worldwide,” he said.

Johor Port is part of MMC Corp Bhd, of which Che Khalib is the group MD.

JPLogistics operates within the vicinity of all key strategic entry points into Malaysia, to capitalise on the growth in the logistics industry.
