The Transport Ministry has launched MyLogistik, an app aims at helping logistics players plan their movement of goods in the most efficient way.
According to The Star, the Transport Ministry has unveiled an app that would facilitate infrastructure planning to create a more efficient logistics and transport network in Malaysia.
“MyLogistik app is built on a logistic facilities geospatial map that developed in collaboration with the National Geospatial Centre (under the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry. This online mapping of all logistic infrastructure location information includes warehouses, off-dock depots, enforcement stations, airports, federal ports, train stations, ICQ (immigration, customs and quarantine) checkpoints, jetties, and train track and road networks, “said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
He added that MyLogistik is aimed at helping logistics players plan their movement of goods in the most efficient way by taking into consideration existing infrastructure and connectivity.
Other than the National Geospatial Centre, the development of MyLogistik was also done with the cooperation of the Customs Department, Marine Department, Road Transport Department and Land Public Transport Agency.
Wee said logistics industry players were also part of the sub-committee on National Freight Data, with these stakeholders engaged in line with good regulatory practices.
