UTi Worldwide has introduced new multimodal hubs in Kuala Lumpur and Ho Chi Minh City to handle growing business in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region, which in turn has led to three new routings out of Southeast Asiafor UTi. “Our new routes will allow clients to benefit from improved transit times and the elimination of split shipments, as well as the knowledge that their goods are being delivered quicker, safer and more reliably all year round,” UTI said.

Utilising these consolidation hubs, UTi said it could provide faster and more reliable transport for its clients’ goods.

It also aims to take advantage of excess, short haul air freight capacity alongside benefi ting from established road feeder routes it already has in place. It said these hubs had also allowed UTi “to roll out new routes to provide clients with seamless movement of cargo to UTi’s European and American gateways”.

Mudasar Mohamed, UTi Worldwide’s managing director for Singapore and Malaysia, said: “Business in the ASEAN region continues to grow, while air cargo capacity from the area has remained static – resulting in an overflow of export cargo causing delays for clients, especially during peak seasons. In order to tackle these challenges, UTi Worldwide in Southeast Asia has been looking to develop new routes and multimodal freight options to create seamless movement for our clients’ shipments.
