About Us

In short, we are here to serve the logistics industry by bridging the industry’s voice to the related government agencies such as customs, immigration as well as with the ports in Johor. We believe good logistics practices will improve the country’s trade performance and economy.

 

We have 3 main aims:
1. To mitigate industry’s issues
2. To increase industry standards by providing trainings
3. To connect industry players and build a stronger bond

 

Vision

Mission

To resolve logistics issues through discussions at all available platforms and active participation in related meetings, forums and seminars.

President’s Message

Since holding office in 2017, my two terms as President has been nothing short of challenging yet truly rewarding at the same time. With my team of capable, dedicated and trustworthy committees, JPSFA has managed to grow over the last 4 years from 128 members to the current 172. A delay in holding the 31st AGM was inevitable due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the many phases of restrictions over the last two years.

The initial intended 28th Anniversary Celebration had to be shelved in 2020 but we are optimistic that we should be able to celebrate our Association’s 30th Anniversary milestone in 2022. I am hopeful that JPSFA will continue to have a good mix of younger committee members to continue serving the Association for years to come.

The logistics supply chain continues to face disruption globally and the cost of doing business is at a critical high as economies struggle to recover from the prolong impact of Covid-19. With this, JPSFA anticipates more issues from members arising from escalating costs and charges. The main issues raised by members are on the container deposit requirement and the revised port tariff. Although some concerns have been addressed, we believe this is just the tip of the iceberg. Engagements with the Government Agencies has been minimal and not much was accomplished in the last two years. Sadly, uCUstoms is in limbo with the many controversies surrounding this failed project.  Nevertheless, the committee shall always actively source for solutions with the relevant parties and keep members engaged and updated.

JPSFA is committed to continuing to do good work and make Corporate Social Responsibility its priority. The Association has been raising fund through the many Charity Events for deserving institutions over the years and for 2021, contributed RM20,300 under the ‘white flag’ initiative. Training and upgrading the skills of employees is also an integral focus we wish to continue building for the benefit of the industry.

Given the challenging business environment faced by the shipping and forwarding companies, it is even more crucial now than ever to have an active and collective representation which we trust, members can find in JPSFA. We urge for more logistics related companies to join the Association as we continue to make a difference and work together to remain competitive globally. 

Lastly, I wish to thank all members for the continuous support, and we will do our level best to strengthen our image and reputation together.
