Malaysia Airlines Cargo (MASkargo) plans to invest 100 million ringgit (US$30 million) to upgrade the material handling system of its cargo handling complex at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) over the next four years, according to MASkargo. “Although the business environment remains challenging, we in the industry are expecting 2010 to be less volatile with moderate growth forecasted,” said MASkargo managing director Shahari Sulaiman. Sulaiman said the upgrade would commence in mid-year for completion in four years. “This is to mitigate the risk of technology obsolescence and hardware scarcity. The move will sustain our system capabilities for another 10 years,” he said. “This also supports our aim to increase annual handling capabilities from the current 650,000 tonnes to a million tonnes,” he added.
