MALAYSIA – CargoGulf, the cargo consolidator and NVOCC, have opened a branch in Port Klang intended to enhance the carriers shipping services in the area. The group say CargoGulf Malaysia was opened in direct response to client demand for direct services in the country, and is intended to help clients achieve economies when moving cargo in the region.

Encouraging signs of growth in the Malaysian economy also drove the decision to open a base in the country, says Hans-Henrik Nielsen, Managing Director of CargoGulf (Singapore) Pte Ltd.

“We believe that Malaysia will emerge as a strong alternative to the large economies of China and India, offering overseas clients competitive prices and high quality products,” he adds. “Our goal is to serve both domestic and international customers who recognise that potential, hence our decision to invest in this new office at Port Klang, one of the country’s strongest direct ports of call. It is part of our long-term strategy to grow, both regionally and globally, in key markets where it makes good business sense for us.”

The group have been established for twenty five years and have offices from Thailand and Dubai to the UK with services based on weekly, fixed-day vessel departures. The company is part of the Dubai based, GAC group who this week themselves appointed marine sales engineer Yuichi Adachi as Marketing Manager - Shipping for Japan.
