The DFTZ e-fulfillment hub at KLIA will facilitate seamless cross-border trade

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd’s (MAHB) ambitious RM33 bil KL International Airport (KLIA) Aeropolis project in Sepang, Selangor, is firmly on track after roping in big guns who will invest billions into the development.

The 3,460ha project in Sepang, Selangor was launched in May last year and will be completed in phases in the coming years.

Similarly, the airport operator’s smaller RM450 mil Subang Aerotech Park, which was also launched last year, has gained the attention of several international aeronautical companies.

The biggest buzz generated was the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) launched last month within KLIA Aeropolis, with the Alibaba Group taking a substantial role in developing its first regional e-fulfilment hub outside of China.
