Air Freight in Malaysia

Out of all types of freight in Malaysia or anywhere else in the world, air freight is always the fastest when it comes to delivering goods, albeit with higher costs and more restrictions on the types of items allowed.

The longest direct route for air freight to Malaysia is from the United Kingdom. Trips can be extended further to even the United States via refuelling layovers or by transhipment to a different plane. On the other hand, the shortest international route is via Singapore Changi Airport.

Air Freight & Air Shipping in Malaysia: The Process

Air freight cargo delivered to Malaysia is usually discharged at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Upon the flight’s arrival, the air freight company will be required to sort out the documents and pay all charges applicable, such as terminal fees and obtain the delivery order. The delivery order will then be submitted, and cargo will be claimed after deconsolidation and shipped to the destination warehouse via inland transportation.

In the case of outgoing shipments, the goods will be picked up from your warehouse or your freight forwarders’ warehouse and sent into the free commercial zone for documentation and processing. Upon receiving approval from Customs, the said cargo will then be delivered to the terminal as early as 48 hours before the actual flight time. The goods will be weighed accordingly again to tally with the weight slip. Terminal fees will be paid during this stage.

Documents Required for Air Freight Services in Malaysia

Air freight handling involves various stakeholders across a wide value chain and thus will require some documents to ease the whole process.

Standard documents required for import handling:

  1. Commercial Invoice
  2. Packing List
  3. Import Declaration
  4. Insurance Policy
  5. Certificate of Origin (if needed)
  6. Air Waybill or Bill of Lading
  7. Import License, permits and certificates (For prohibited and controlled items)

Standard documents required for export handling:

  1. Commercial Invoice
  2. Packing List
  3. Export License (For controlled items and any items into Israel)
  4. Bill of Lading
  5. Air Waybill

Choosing A Suitable Air Freight Company for Your Needs

The environment today is constantly adapting to suit evolving business needs. The same applies to the logistics industry. This is why when selecting the right air freight forwarder in Malaysia, one needs to take into account the additional value that the company is able to put on the table.

Since cost is unlikely to be the main concern if one decides to use air freight for B2B shipments, the primary concern will be the speed and coverage of the shipment. The best air freight company will have an extensive network readily available for international shipments, ensuring speedy and accurate delivery of your goods to the destination.

Nevertheless, your bottom line must not be neglected. This is why cost-effectiveness measures are still a valid point of consideration. On that note, one should always seek for an air freight company that is also an integrated logistics provider that integrates all aspects of international shipping from freight forwarding, customs clearance, and multiple modes of transportation together to yield the most cost-optimized solution.
