The Airfreight Forwarders Association of Malaysia (AFAM) wants the supply chain security partnership that was established between the Royal Malaysian Customs and the private sector to be extended to freight forwarders, the Malaysian Business Times reported. The facility is currently restricted to manufacturers and traders.
