Concerted efforts from Govt and industry players needed in the logistics industry

Extracted 28JUN2011 from

The Association of Bumiputra Logistics Services Providers (PPLB)... PPLB members were mostly from the SME category and they needed a lot of support especially from the government-linked corporations (GLCs) in creating new opportunities by considering the range of services offered by them...

Samsuddin added that the Government had set a target that the service industry should contribute to about 30% of the country's gross domestic product in 2013. “From the 30%, the logistics industry should take up between 10% and 12%.”

PPLB currently has about 100 member companies.
