FedEx Express Teams Up With Leading E-commerce Platforms To Empower SMEs In Asia Pacific



FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, unveiled a series of new integrations with leading e-commerce technology platforms [1] across the Asia Pacific region which will substantially benefit e-tailers or e-commerce sellers. This development comes at a time when small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are seeing significant demand for e-commerce services [2] and day-definite international express delivery services, especially with the upcoming year-end peak season. [3]

Changing consumer behavior resulting from the pandemic is spurring online transactions and e-commerce growth like never before. The Asia Pacific region is generating nearly two-thirds (64%) of global e-commerce spending. [4]Just as shoppers have switched to purchasing online, so have businesses. [5] More retailers are increasing their investment and engagement in online channels to capture consumer demand [6], resulting in increased demand for logistics support. According to McKinsey, the Asia e-commerce logistics market will account for 57% of total market growth from 2020 to 2025. [7]

FedEx is responding to the increasing needs from e-commerce businesses through the company’s innovative Compatible and Alliances programs. These two programs enable e-tailers to gain instant access to enhanced and affordable shipping solutions, allowing them to sell effortlessly on e-commerce platforms.

Under the FedEx Compatible program, FedEx customers can generate FedEx shipping labels and use additional FedEx features, such as Express Shipping Services and International Shipping Documentation Service, without leaving the e-commerce or marketplace platforms. This

simple and easy-to-follow integration of FedEx and platform/ marketplace accounts enables e-tailers easy and automated access to process orders. In addition, e-tailers on marketplaces will also benefit from exclusive discounts on FedEx rates under the Compatible program. To date, FedEx has integrated with 17 platforms, allowing hundreds of thousands of e-merchants across Asia Pacific direct access to FedEx services, using their FedEx account number, to manage shipments and grow cross-border their e-commerce business.

At the same time, the Alliances program allows all partners in the e-commerce ecosystem, including online shipping providers, to offer their e-tailer customers direct access to FedEx services at favorable rates.

“The e-commerce sector has only gotten stronger as a result of the pandemic, leapfrogging traditional commerce by as much as five times, [8] As the holiday season approaches, consumers are spending even more online. [9] To help e-tailers tap the growing demand, we are making our services more accessible to e-tailers and SMEs globally,” said Kawal Preet, president, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa Region, FedEx Express. “Our collaboration with leading e-commerce platforms is an important step toward building a robust e-commerce ecosystem where small businesses can enjoy the same services as large retail brands, thereby leveling the playing field. We look forward to collaborating with more like-minded partners to provide sustainable solutions at scale and further propel the entire e-commerce value chain.”

Kempen “Vaxxed To Go” Agoda beri insentif kepada rakyat Malaysia yang lengkap vaksinasi

Kempen ‘Vaxxed To Go’ Agoda menjanjikan tawaran dan faedah percutian eksklusif kepada pelancong yang lengkap vaksinasi



Rakyat Malaysia kini mendapat sedikit kelonggaran untuk melancong semula dan dapat meninggalkan keresahan akibat duduk di rumah sekian lama. Pelancaran program rintis "gelembung pelancongan" baru-baru ini bukan sahaja memberikan harapan kepada industri pelancongan tempatan, malahan individu yang telah menerima vaksin turut akan mendapat pelbagai manfaat penginapan dan tawaran yang eksklusif di bawah kempen “Vaxxed To Go” oleh Agoda.

Kempen ‘Vaxxed To Go’ telah dilancarkan untuk mempromosikan percutian vaksin atau “vaxications” untuk rakyat Malaysia yang telah menerima vaksin dan sedia untuk keluar melancong semula. Kempen ‘Vaxxed-To-Go’ ini menawarkan pelbagai pakej unik yang boleh digunakan apabila kawalan pergerakan dilonggarkan kelak. Setiap pakej percutian disertakan dengan tiga atau lebih faedah dengan nilai tambahan, menjadikan pakej penginapan tersebut suatu tawaran yang amat berbaloi dan hebat. Faedah tambahan membolehkan pelancong yang telah menerima vaksin untuk menikmati percutian yang lebih santai dengan kemudahan seperti keutamaan daftar masuk, daftar masuk lebih awal atau daftar keluar lewat; pelbagai diskaun harga untuk makanan dan minuman; dan tawaran pengalaman unik di dalam hotel seperti pakej spa dan kesejahteraan.

Tawaran dan faedah istimewa ini boleh didapati melalui platform Vaxxed To Go, dan hanya dikhaskan kepada pelancong-pelancong yang boleh membuktikan ketika daftar masuk bahawa mereka sudah menerima vaksin yang lengkap mengikut peraturan yang telah ditetapkan oleh kerajaan Malaysia untuk melindungi warga kerja dan juga pelancong lain. Setakat ini, Badan Bertindak Imunisasi COVID-19 (CITF) mentakrifkan individu yang “lengkap vaksin” sebagai mereka yang telah menerima dua dos vaksin Pfizer, AstraZeneca dan Sinovac dan melepasi hari ke-14 dari tarikh suntikan dos kedua. Sementara itu, individu yang menerima vaksin satu dos seperti Cansino dianggap sebagai lengkap vaksin apabila melepasi hari ke-28 dari tarikh suntikan.

Tempoh penginapan ‘Vaxxed To Go’ untuk tawaran istimewa ini bermula dari sekarang sehingga bulan Jun 2022, dan para pelancong boleh mendapat jaminan tempahan yang fleksibel melalui pilihan ‘EasyCancel’ Agoda, yang membolehkan individu membatalkan atau menukar tempahan penginapan mereka sehingga 24 jam sebelum daftar masuk.

Di samping menggalakkan pelancongan yang bertanggungjawab, Agoda juga menghulurkan bantuan secara langsung kepada inisiatif kemanusiaan untuk meningkatkan kadar vaksinasi di dalam negara. Untuk setiap tempahan yang dibuat di bawah ‘Vaxxed To Go’, Agoda akan menyumbangkan RM 50, dengan jumlah maksimum RM 125,000 kepada program vaksinasi Persatuan Bulan Sabit Merah Malaysia (MRCS) yang menyantuni masyarakat yang terpinggir di dalam negara. Menerusi sumbangan ini, Agoda berharap dapat menyokong objektif MRCS dalam memastikan tiada yang tercicir dalam usaha vaksinasi ini.

“Kami berharap dapat memainkan peranan untuk memulihkan industri pelancongan tempatan — antara sektor ekonomi yang paling teruk terjejas ekoran pandemik Covid-19 — dengan memberikan tawaran yang menarik dan berbaloi untuk menggalakkan mereka yang lengkap vaksin untuk keluar melancong semula dengan selamat,” kata Mr. Cleland Robertson, Pengarah Negara, Malaysia dan Brunei, Agoda.

‘Vaxxed To Go’ merupakan satu program lanjutan dari tawaran ‘Agoda Special Offers’, yang telah dilancarkan pada bulan Mei dalam beberapa pasaran. Dengan Malaysia sebagai pasaran rintis untuk kempen tersebut, Agoda mensasarkan untuk melancarkan ‘Vaxxed To Go’ ke lebih banyak pasaran lain dalam beberapa bulan akan datang.

Setakat bulan September 2021, kira-kira 57.1% daripada populasi Malaysia telah lengkap dua dos vaksin COVID-19, dengan 67.7% telah menerima dos pertama vaksin. Dengan kadar vaksinasi yang memberansangkan, kerajaan telah memulakan program rintis "gelembung pelancongan" dengan Langkawi pada 16 September yang lalu dan lebih banyak destinasi akan dibenarkan beroperasi apabila kadar vaksinasi tempatan mencecah 80%.

Spritzer Joins Hands With NGOs And Pledges Aid For Vulnerable Groups Affected By COVID-19

Company, which turns 32, affirms commitment to help communities in distress



Spritzer Malaysia (“Spritzer” or the “Company”), which produces Malaysia’s best-selling natural mineral water, is committed to the wellbeing of the community and has endeavoured to send aid to the vulnerable and less privileged in society during these challenging times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is especially poignant for Spritzer as the Company turns 32 today, that the best way of celebrating another milestone in its corporate journey is to continue the commitment to support fellow Malaysians, especially those who have been marginalised by society and lack the basic necessities such as food, shelter or even safe drinking water.



Spritzer Malaysia recognises that the pandemic has been especially hard on those in the Bottom-40 income bracket, the Orang Asli, the homeless and those living in rural areas. The Company escalated its community outreach programme in April 2021 by working through non-governmental organisations (“NGOs”) to send them aid in the form of clean drinking water amid the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.



The Company has, to-date, sponsored more than RM60,000 in aid nationwide that has been distributed through NGOs, food banks and restaurants on top of the other donation outreach activities, and will continue to support initiatives and community outreach programmes that targets marginalised or vulnerable groups.

Wellness Starts Today from Your Wrist with the Galaxy Watch4

No comments
Samsung Malaysia Electronics recently announced that the Galaxy Watch4 Classic and Galaxy Watch4 Bluetooth versions, along with Galaxy Buds2 will be available for purchase in Malaysia, starting from 22 September 2021 onwards. These new devices have been redesigned to provide us with the best tools to manage our wellness.

We all strive to be the best version of ourselves – fitter, happier and healthier. Small changes to our daily routines, including changes to diet, sleep habits and exercise, go a long way in helping us get the most out of work and play. While the path to wellness is different for everyone, there’s nothing more important than to start focusing on our health from young.

Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch4 series takes health and fitness data tracking to the next level, featuring a groundbreaking 3-in-1 BioActive Sensor, which uses a single chip to run powerful health sensors, including measuring blood oxygen levels [1], and for the first time – calculating body composition [2].

Read on to discover ways you can make the most out of the cutting-edge data presented by the Galaxy Watch4.

Get a good night’s sleep, every day
Are you guilty of revenge bedtime procrastination? If so, is there a nagging thought in your head that it might be affecting sleep quality? You can now find out with the Galaxy Watch4’s sleep analysis function.

The sleep analysis function has been a fan favorite for users of the Galaxy Watch series, and rightly so – a good night’s sleep is fundamental to our overall mental and physical health. In fact, in the past year, Galaxy Watch users have checked their sleep patterns more than 800 million times [3]!

To give you a more comprehensive understanding of your sleep quality, the Galaxy Watch4 tracks both your snoring and breathing patterns – so you can make informed decisions about your sleep to help you sleep longer and better.

The Samsung Health App [4] on your smartphone detects the sounds of your snores, while the Watch4 checks your blood oxygen levels once every second [5]. This data collectively informs your overall sleep score.

If you find yourself struggling to get a good night’s sleep based on your Watch4’s readings, you can consider following these steps [6] to improve your sleep score:

  • Establish a daily bedtime routine
    • You sleep best when your body is used to falling asleep and waking up at a fixed time every day — even on weekends or holidays.
  • Watch what you eat and drink before
    • Avoid big meals, alcohol, caffeine, heavy, spicy or sugary foods four to six hours before bedtime, as these foods stimulate the system, making sleeping difficult.
  • Create a good sleep environment for yourself
    • Block out all distracting noises and lights. A room that is too hot or too cold can keep you awake. A cool environment is often the most conducive setting for sleeping.

Accurately track fitness and health goals through body composition
Many of us may be more familiar with relying on weighing scale readings as a general indicator of health – but there are limitations to this. Such readings do not consider the amount of muscle, fat and water in your body tissues [7], unlike a more comprehensive body composition analysis.

For the first time in a Galaxy Watch, the body composition measurement tool on the Galaxy Watch4 brings a technology more commonly available in smart scales at the gym or at the clinic to your wrists!

This is enabled by Bioelectrical Impedence Analysis (BIA), which captures 2,400 data points, delivering results in about 15 seconds. Quality isn’t compromised either – with a correlation of 98%, the Galaxy Watch4’s BIA measurements are as accurate as those from dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans [8], the gold standard of body composition measurements trusted by industry experts.

With these insights, you can now adjust your diet and activity levels to get your body composition measurements to a healthier range.

Ease your day with multi-device experience
On top of advanced sleep and body composition tracking, we’ve made the smartwatch and Galaxy experience even more seamless. Pair the Galaxy Buds2 with your Galaxy devices, and using Auto Switch [9], go from listening to music on your tablet to picking up a call on your smartphone in an instant as your earbuds switches audio between your devices, depending on usage. With Buds Controller, you can conveniently access and control your earbuds via the Galaxy Watch4 series, interchanging between Active Noise Cancellation and Ambient sound mode with just a tap on your Watch.

The new Wear OS Powered by Samsung platform allows you to tap into an expansive ecosystem right from your wrist – with popular Google apps like Google Maps, and Galaxy services, like Samsung Pay, SmartThings and Bixby. It also supports third-party apps [10], like Adidas Running, Calm, Strava, and Spotify that is available from Google Play. So that you can enjoy smooth and convenient unified experiences everyday with your Galaxy Watch4.

Ultimately, the simplest routines and habits can go a long way in helping us optimize our personal health and fitness. With the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Buds2, Samsung brings years of R&D and cutting-edge technologies to you, providing advanced insights distilled into an easy-to-digest interface, guiding you towards making informed decisions that optimize your health, fitness and overall wellness.

Signature Market Empowers Women To Be A UNIQUECORN

Partners with international and local brands in supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month



Malaysia FMCG Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) brand Signature Market is spreading its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaign known as “Be A Uniquecorn: Embrace Your Uniqueness, Be Your Own Unicorn” to the local community in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Signature Market is collaborating with the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA) and leading lifestyle brands.

The social stigma associated with cancer can be devastating, with losing hair, fear, rejection, isolation, and others. Regardless of what one may experience, it is important to encounter it while seeking the right support. Learning to be comfortable with one’s body during and after breast cancer treatment is a personal journey, one that is different for every woman. Change of mindset is pertinent for every brave woman to stand up, fight the disease and continue to live life like normal.

Edwin Wang
Realising the importance of having the right support and the need to emerge stronger, Signature Market with its vision to spread the teaching of conscious living will play a vital role in its ‘Be A Uniquecorn’ campaign. This is aimed at empowering women to accept the differences in shapes and sizes that make each and every one unique and beautiful in their own way. Hence, all women deserve to be a ‘Uniquecorn’, which Signature Market truly believes in since day one.

“The campaign is designed to enforce the message that it is important for every woman irrespective of the challenges she goes through to acknowledge her condition and embrace herself in all her uniqueness knowing that she is not alone. Signature Market signifies the importance of reaching out and being a strong support in every way possible especially to women who are fighting breast cancer. We hope this campaign can increase the self-awareness among our customers, thus providing unconditional care and love from our side,” said Edwin Wang, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Signature Market.

Any woman will find it difficult to accept the fact when diagnosed with breast cancer. But cancer fighters like Aimi Yusoff, diagnosed with advanced breast cancer stage 4, have never been discouraged from fighting cancer. Throughout her 7 years of undergoing treatment until now, she has been fighting it and does her very best to endure it even though sometimes she feels like giving up. Blessed with valuable support and love from her family and friends, she continues to stand up and confronts it in the strongest way possible.

Aimi Yusoff
“As a breast cancer survivor, I want to remind everyone that it is so important for us to listen to our body and go for regular checkups. Because I truly believe that early detection can save lives. In everything we do in life, it’s all about mind over matter, that's my motto that drives my spirit to keep on fighting. Even though you are physically drained with the chemotherapy, your mind will always be strong and keep you in a fighting spirit. More campaigns and initiatives about breast cancer should be held as it can make a difference in the lives of thousands of women out there,” said Aimi Yusoff, Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Ambassador.

Meanwhile, Consultant Clinical Oncologist, Dr. Mastura Md Yusof emphasized that cancer has a high cure rate if it is detected early and given the correct treatment, at the correct time, and by a dedicated team with a special interest in breast cancer. It is important for women to check their breasts regularly to look out for any irregularities because we should know how our breasts feel or look better than anyone else. However, there are also some lifestyle factors such as poor diet, being overweight or obese, lack of physical activity, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, and taking supplements that contain hormones that we can do something, to reduce the chances of getting breast cancer. Furthermore, having a history of breast or other cancers in close relatives or within the family may enhance our chances of developing it, which is becoming an increasingly important fact in breast cancer.

Dr. Mastura Md Yusof
“This October, being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will continue to show our support not just on the importance of raising awareness but also to promote a call for action towards women, local community, government, and corporate sectors to advocate for early detection of breast cancer. This is the right time to connect, provide moral support and aid them in the right direction by sharing experiences and giving hope to others who are going through the same journey. We want them to accept their challenges, look deeper within themselves and embrace their uniqueness,” added Dr. Mastura.

As part of the ‘Be A Uniquecorn’ campaign, Signature Market is introducing a special edition, ‘Be A Uniquecorn’ gift box priced at only RM35 that will be available from 1st October until the end of the month. Part of the proceeds from the sale will be channeled to the BCWA. A total of 12 lifestyle brands will be part of this campaign. Among them are Marc Jacobs fragrance, Chloé fragrance, Philosophy, Hair Atelier, XIXILI, Benefit Cosmetics, Agrain, Alcosm, Mis Claire, Neutrovis, Machine, and Under Armour. The public are encouraged to support this cause and celebrate the uniqueness of women. For more information on activities held throughout the month, visit Signature Market’s official Instagram, @signaturemarket.


Leading The Future with Foldables: Galaxy Z Series the first to bring IPX8, S Pen, and Under Display Camera Capabilities

In recent decades we saw mobile phones drift away from their quirky designs of the 2000s, where foldables phones of all shapes and colours were a staple icon that defined the era. In a bid to preserve this creative and highly personal expression, Samsung is breathing new life into foldable designs through the latest entries in their Galaxy Z Series.



With the Galaxy Z Series, Samsung showed their drive for innovation by creating foldable phones for the future – through merging modern hardware and intelligent features to create an experience of many firsts in the history of foldable devices, which includes pushing boundaries to make this generation’s Galaxy Z Series the world’s first Foldables, to earn an IPX8 [1] water-resistance rating, ensuring that the devices are equipped to handle accidental spills or worry if users get caught in the rain. Both devices are also built with the new Armor Aluminum—one of the strongest aluminum ever used on a Galaxy smartphone—along with one of the toughest Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™ to protect against scratches and accidental drops.

Samsung takes pride in providing a true 2-in-1 experience with foldables in the Galaxy Z Series by giving users the feel of owning both a mobile phone and tablet under one package. While users of the past had to choose between one or the other, Samsung has closed the gap by enabling the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G to be the first foldable device with S-Pen [2] support, propelling productivity to new heights while opening new possibilities for creativity.

Providing an immersive experience was also an important factor for the Galaxy Z Series and a large part of that was achieved through the excellent display screens of both the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Z Flip3 5G. Samsung took immersion a step further with the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G by making it the first foldable device with an Under Display Camera. Thanks to breakthrough engineering, Samsung was able to achieve sliding the camera in-between the phone’s glass panel to create an uninterrupted display without compromising the quality of its camera.

With the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G coming in a range of colours, and even more personalisation options from Galaxy Z Series catalogue, Samsung is putting personality back into phones and setting the standard for foldable devices of the future. So, what are you waiting for? Pick boldness today by switching to the Galaxy Z Series!

From 22 September to 31 October 2021, purchase the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G to receive a RM500 e-voucher and a one year plan of Samsung Care+ worth RM799 [3]. Consumers who purchase the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G within the same promotional period will receive a RM350 e-voucher and a one year plan of Samsung Care+ worth RM699 [4]. It does not stop there! Until 30th November 2021, purchase either the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G or Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and be entitled to receive 30% OFF the original price of up to three selected accessories! [5]

With Power Saving Mode, the battery will analyse your routine, optimize CPU resources and disables background data to conserve battery.

Digitalisation of airasia portfolio companies provide robust platform for growth in the future

Surge in cargo demand, shopping deliveries drive expansion during pandemic



As airasia’s rapid transformation into a digital travel and lifestyle group continues to gain strong momentum, the group’s engineering arm Asia Digital Engineering (ADE), ground handling division Ground Team Red (GTR) and logistics venture Teleport, are set to soar to new heights, leveraging the new technology revolution through digitisation and data.

AirAsia Group Berhad (AAGB) President, Aireen Omar, who oversees digital operations, said embracing the digital revolution and driving innovation is a core focus across the entire airasia portfolio of companies.

“While the pandemic has undoubtedly adversely affected our airline operations over the past 18 months, it has also reshaped consumer behaviour and we are really excited about the future of all of our digital businesses.

“We’re a group that continues to evolve based on consumer demand. A silver lining of Covid-19 has caused a huge surge in demand for cargo and online shopping deliveries and this is driving many new business opportunities and revenue streams. As a brand that has always had innovation in its DNA, we see huge potential, not only in our super app and fintech solutions, but also in our logistics, aircraft maintenance and ground services divisions.

“While our airasia Super App is already on track to become the platform of choice for everyday travel and lifestyle needs in Asean, ADE, is set to revolutionise the airline Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) industry in Asia, our logistics venture Teleport is experiencing significant growth in line with overwhelming demand for cargo and online deliveries and GTR is preparing for strong regional expansion including with third party airlines as soon as travel restrictions ease and international borders reopen.

“What we have built in a short period of time is a complete digital marketplace for travel and everyday lifestyle services on our airasia Super App. Logistics, aircraft maintenance, ground handling services and fintech are equally important to complete our ecosystem. They all work in tandem symbiotically, to meet increasing demand in the e-commerce and distribution space.

“What we now deliver is stronger competition and better value and choice for consumers' everyday needs, which is what the airasia brand is all about. Importantly, we are not just an airline anymore. Our goal is to become the most prefered, profitable and lowest cost digital distribution group in Southeast Asia and we believe we are on the right track to get there soon,” she said.
 
ADE

With state of the art infrastructure, superior quality services at the lowest cost with and fastest turnaround time for third party airlines as well as for AirAsia airlines, ADE is gearing up for a major resurgence in the post pandemic world.

ADE performed and completed Teleport’s first A320 cargo plane conversion earlier this year and expects more aircraft modifications of passenger to cargo aircraft in the future as regional demand for delivery continues to soar. The MRO business division has been conducting base maintenance checks since June and has completed its first wifi installation on an AirAsia aircraft. Wireless connectivity will be rolled out progressively across the fleet in the near future as AirAsia and airlines worldwide move towards delivering fully digital inflight experiences.

“The Southeast Asia aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) market alone was valued at over USD 4 billion in 2020 and the industry is expected to rebound very fast when things return to the new normal. Over the past few decades, leading MRO providers in the region, including in Malaysia and Singapore, have established themselves as dominant providers in the industry, positioning Southeast Asia as an important hub for aircraft MRO globally.

“With an experienced workforce of more than 15 years managing AirAsia’s fleet, strong supplier, lessor and regulatory relationships and through industry leading automation and streamlined operations, we foresee that ADE will soon become the next major MRO player in Asean, delivering a significant new revenue stream for airasia Group.”
 
Teleport

Teleport, which was launched in 2018, has experienced strong growth off the back of the burgeoning digital economy and has recently refocused its strategy with the introduction of cargo only flights. Two modified former A320 passenger jets and a dedicated freighter aircraft will serve to bolster Teleport’s ability to meet the region’s rapidly increasing demand for deliveries.

“With direct access to the unrivalled Airasia Group network in Southeast Asia, best in class technology and a commitment to enabling last mile, door to door commerce anywhere in Asean within 24 hours, Teleport has put in place the right foundations to truly disrupt the cargo industry in Asean.

“Furthermore, Teleport’s partnership with Freightchain, the world’s first digital air cargo network running on blockchain, is a game changer for Teleport and the industry, making the online booking process as easy as buying a flight ticket on AirAsia. Importantly it also links AirAsia airlines with other innovative interline partners to ensure maximum efficiency and lowest cost for clients,” she said.

As a testament to the company's goal to shift from a pure air freight logistics provider to a complete multi-modal operator, Teleport's recent acquisition of Delivereat has also helped accelerate its network expansion and growing the fleet of riders. That, along with the use of SmartKargo in the company’s operations - an all in one digital system for cargo management which provides a seamless end to end tracking system - helps propel Teleport’s air cargo business forward.

GTR

To feed into AirAsia’s logistics and distribution ecosystem, GTR has embraced digitisation initiatives across the process pipeline to enhance air cargo movements, communication exchanges and logistics processes in and between its KLIA Cargo Terminal and AirAsia’s aircraft. GTR will continue its efforts to support and supplement the Group’s ecosystem by working hand in hand with other AirAsia affiliate airlines while expanding its range of services and capabilities including across other airlines.

“Similar to our super app ambitions, alongside ADE and Teleport, GTR aims to be the ground handling services provider of choice in Asean and with the easing of movement restrictions and return of air travel globally, GTR is anticipating more business collaborations with foreign airlines in major airports across Malaysia, further delivering service excellence and superior Asean hospitality to its business partners and travelling guests.”

The Halal Integrity of Australian Beef and Lamb from Farm to Table

No comments


Australia is an impeccable source of halal meat and meat products, being a long trusted supplier of Halal Beef and Lamb to over 100 countries, including the Middle East, Indonesia and Malaysia.

“Halal” is an Arabic word meaning lawful and permitted. It refers to not only adherence to a set of conditions on how the animal is slaughtered and meat processed but also to how the animal is treated while alive. According to Islamic law it must not be mistreated nor has any pain inflicted on it during its lifetime. It must also be provided with enough space to roam, clean water, food and fresh air.

All these conditions are met for Halal beef and lamb production in Australia. The animals graze on lush green pastures and are well cared for. It is a natural way of life for livestock in Australia and animal welfare is regulated by laws enforced by government. These have a positive impact on the consistently high quality of Australian Halal beef and lamb.



A recent study by Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) has revealed that animals raised and processed in a stress-free environment produce better quality meat that are consistent, hygienic, safe and nutritious. These are the beneficial attributes that are permissible for consumption.

Australian Halal beef and lamb are versatile and suitable for Asian and western cuisine, turning out delicious and nutritious dishes each time. With such quality, fresh and tender meat, it takes less time to cook, whether it’s a beef rendang or a spicy lamb stew.

All cattle, sheep and goats processed in Australia for the Malaysia market are slaughtered under the Australian Government Supervised Halal Program by accredited Muslims. This program is administered by the Federal Department of Agriculture in Australia.

Additionally, all processing facilities in Australia employ only registered and trained Muslim slaughtermen from the Halal Certifying Bodies. They also comply with personal hygiene, operational sanitation and animal welfare requirements. These Halal Certifying Bodies are recognised and approved by JAKIM (Department of Islamic Development of Malaysia). The Halal systems and production facilities are regularly audited by internal quality and food safety assurance systems, (Australian and importing country representatives from DVS (Department of Veterinary Services of Malaysia) and JAKIM.

With a population of 16 million Muslims, Malaysia has a growing demand for halal meat and meat products. The meat is certified halal prior to its import into Malaysia. These authorised representatives will confirm the manufacturing process adheres to Halal standards. There are currently 7 Muslim certifying bodies in Australia for Halal certification export to Malaysia. Meat exporters will also need to meet other requirements under Australian regulations prior to export. Every shipment carries a Halal and Health Certificate.

Malaysia stands to benefit from both local demand and strong export opportunities by leveraging increasing purchasing power among consumers in other Muslim markets. These include the Middle East and neighbouring Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim country with a population of more than 200 million.

There are increasing opportunities in Malaysia’s Halal economy. As a member of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), Malaysia’s Halal certification is globally recognised by all Muslim nations, making it a perfect launch market for exporters.

Meat and Livestock Australia will be taking part in MIHAS (Malaysia International Halal Showcase), the world’s largest Halal exhibition. It’s a hybrid event from 9 to 12 September, combining virtual and physical exhibition, with halal industry players from around the world. The virtual exhibition will continue till 31 December 2021.



Nearly 30,000 visitors, 28 trade envoys and 2,000 delegates representing the entire Halal supply chain attended MIHAS and the Global Halal Summit in 2019.

According to Ms Valeska “Australian Halal beef and lamb work well with Asian and western cuisine, turning out delicious and nutritious dishes each time. With such quality, fresh and tender meat, it takes less time to cook, whether it’s a beef rendang or a spicy lamb stew”.
