Malaysia, the South Asian nation of over 31 million people, is known for its incredible diversity. Not only is it one of only 17 “megadiverse” countries in the world, with abundant amounts of plant and animal species that can only be found in malaysia, but its people form a multi-ethnic and multicultural melting pot as well. Reflected in Malaysia’s culture, cuisine, dress, and way of life, the diverse roots of its people are everywhere you look.
Perhaps it is to be expected that Malaysia’s is one of the best performing economies in the world, averaging 6.5% GDP growth per year over the last 50 years. This incredible consistency and growth outpaces even other quickly developing nations around the world, demonstrating that Malaysia’s economic vitality is not a fluke, and is likely the result of its enterprising and bright workforce.
In Malaysia’s early years of independence, the economy was anchored by robust agriculture and mining sectors, but it has since been making itself into a multi-sector economy. While agriculture and mining are still important industries, the country is today lead by its manufacturing capabilities and international trade industry. The center of Malaysia’s industrial, economic, financial, and international business world is Kuala Lumpur
Based in Kuala Lumpur, the capital and largest city of Malaysia, one of the company’s that has been helping to foster economic growth in the country is SD Express Sdn. Bhd. Founded in 2002 as Shami D Enterprise, this company has expanded over the years, consistently adding services and increasing capabilities, prompting two name changes in the process. What started out as a courier service has since become one of the top full service transport, logistics, and warehousing operations in the country. SD Express
, with the company motto "We Deliver Your Expectation" is credited with single handedly changing perceptions about the feasibility of running a supply-chain in and out of Malaysia. The company consists of five distinct operating units: SD Express, which covers transport throughout Malaysia and Singapore by road, sea, and air; SD Express Dispatch, which is a same-day courier service operating in Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley; SD Transport Professional Movers which supplies dedicated drivers and manpower for moving furniture, electronics, offices, and more; and SD Warehouse and SD Logistics, which cover the full suite of supply-chain services needed for businesses owners both big and small.
By providing warehousing, logistics, and distribution services all under one roof, SD Express is able to manage every aspect of the supply chain with complete confidence and quality.
