Domestic freight forwarders face uncertainties amidst disruption in local manufacturing.


  • Since February, all types of cargo have been impacted, with limited road, sea and air freights.
  • The lack of equipment, such as containers, as well as the rise in sea freight rates have resulted in challenges for import of materials and export of goods.
  • Domestic transportation is impacted by the ongoing curfew in most places and checkpoints, resulting in inefficiency in the transport of goods.
  • Factories in other non-food sectors have diverted orders to neighbouring countries. Due to the limited orders, some factories have shut down or reduced operating capacity.
