International Shipping in Malaysia

Malaysia is one of the better performers in terms of eCommerce growth in Southeast Asia due to its dynamic economy and developed infrastructure for digital technologies.

This growth in Malaysia’s eCommerce industry applies to both domestic and international products, which is congruent to the huge demand for shipping and logistics providers.

Malaysia’s International Shipping: eCommerce’s Current Scene

According to the Department of Statistics Malaysia, the country’s eCommerce income by establishments recorded RM279 billion, a jump of 17.1 percent year-on-year in the third quarter of 2021. In terms of quarter-on-quarter growth, it maintained a positive trend with 4.3 percent. From January to September, eCommerce revenue totalled RM801.2 billion, a 23.1 percent increase year on year.

For small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), Business to Business (B2B) eCommerce is one of the fastest-growing sectors: Malaysia is ranked fourth among nine APAC countries surveyed in digital platform implementation and third in adopting Industry 4.0 technologies. Examples of Industry 4.0 implementations in operations are mobile payments, automation software, and Big Data and Analytics.

If you aspire to establish your business by selling your products internationally, it is key that you partner up with an experienced and established logistics service provider (LSP) to streamline your logistic operations with minimal headaches.

Overseas Shipping: Basic Tips to Pack Goods Safely and Avoid Damages

When dealing with overseas shipping, it is crucial to properly protect your items.

Always begin the packing process with a thick layer of cushioning material. Some of the common materials include bubble wrap, packing peanuts and foam pads depending on the underlying product. The key is to minimize air pockets to prevent the product from moving too much during transportation.

Individually pack each item if you want to put more than one item into a bigger box. Do consider the possibility of breaking especially for fragile items, which smaller boxes should be used before putting them inside a larger one.

The extreme environmental factors should also be taken into account, especially in the case of sea freight involving the use of containers. Absorbent pads and blankets should be used to prevent moisture damage, alongside desiccant bags for humidity absorption.

It can be an overwhelming experience if you are a first-timer in dealing with international shipping. Hence, it is crucial for you to anchor with a logistics service provider that has an established track record in handling clients’ international shipping demands. They will be able to provide you with valuable advice and potential pitfalls in shipping your products overseas; at the very least on how to pack your products the proper way before shipping out of your country of origin.

International Shipping & Delivery: Regulations to Follow

When shipping internationally, one should always ensure that the receiving party is not blacklisted. Certain countries may be sanctioned or restricted by certain trade embargoes.

Aside from geographical concerns, some goods are also classified as dual-use items. These items will require extra attention as they could be used for both civilian and military purposes. Drones are a good example of such goods.

On the same note, if you are shipping controlled and licensed products, you will also need to specifically declare it on the commercial invoice and air waybill. Most importantly, you will also have to identify the Harmonized System (HS) code, which is commonly used throughout the export process for goods. The Harmonized System is a standardized numerical method of classifying traded products. It is used by customs authorities around the world to identify products when assessing duties and taxes and for gathering statistics.

Janio may not be able to help you ship all controlled and licensed products. If you are planning on shipping these with Janio, please contact your account manager for more information before planning your shipment.

Selecting the Right International Shipping Company: One Strong Reason

More than just packing things the right way and understanding and following international rules and regulations, there are many other considerations such as import duties and taxes, customs clearance and distribution of goods upon arrival (last-mile delivery), just to name a few.

The right logistics service providers have dealt with many clients from many countries and collect knowledge and experience in handling these operations smoothly with optimum risk management. By hiring the right provider and ‘buying’ their expertise to ensure your international shipping aspect is totally covered, giving you peace of mind.
