Yang Ming Inaugurates Port Klang Depot

Yang Ming has cooperated with TAIWAN FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL PTE. LTD. and Malaysian investors to set up a joint venture depot company named Jambatan Merah Formosa Depot Sdn. Bhd at Port Klang, Malaysia.The new company will provide inland empty container depot and container maintenance and repair services.

Malaysia is the one of largest economies in ASEAN and according to an International Monetary Fund (IMF) report released in June, despite Malaysia’s GDP is projected to contract by 3.8% this year due to COVID-19, its GDP growth is expected to resume pre-COVID-19 growth levels in 2021 at 6.3%.

The harbor business is one of the most important sectors for development in Malaysia. Port Klang, the largest port in Malaysia, is also a main calling port of Yang Ming. In light of this, Yang Ming set up wholly-owned subsidiaries in the country to position itself in the Malaysian transport and logistics market.

In keeping with the rapid growth of Southeast Asian market and The government’s “New Southbound Policy”, Yang Ming set up a joint venture depot company named PT. FORMOSA SEJATI LOGISTICS in Surabaya, Indonesia in 2018, and continued to extend its investment territory in Southeast Asia by establishing Jambatan Merah Formosa Depot Sdn. Bhd this year. In the future, Yang Ming will continue to look for cross-sector collaboration opportunities to enhance its competitiveness and service quality in the Southeast Asia market.
