FGV transport receives JAKIM halal logistics certification

FGV Transport Services Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of FGV Holdings Bhd, has received halal logistics certification from the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) for 76 tanker trucks operating at its Pasir Gudang depot in Johor.

The halal logistics certification falls under the category of Halal Supply Chain Management System for transportation. It includes transportation services for palm-based liquid products such as crude palm oil, palm kernel oil as well as processed palm oil.

FGV’s group CEO Datuk Haris Fadzilah Hassan described JAKIM’s recognition for its first batch of tanker trucks as a first step in the group’s efforts to develop the halal transportation segment in phases.

“In addition to meeting the increasing demand for halal logistics, it is also a benchmark towards comprehensively achieving halal certification for the Group’s future business operations.”

The tanker trucks received halal recognition in accordance with the quality standards set by Malaysia Standard MS2400-1:2010 where every aspect of Halalan Toyyiban and hygiene practices are observed to ensure the halal status of the products transported.

Four more FGV Transport operating depots in Kuantan (Pahang), Port Klang and Shah Alam (Selangor) as well as Sahabat (Sabah) will be carrying out the processes to obtain halal logistics certification by 2021.

FGV Transport also plans to expand the halal logistics certification scope to include a side curtain lorry early next year to meet the demand for halal transportation for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and other halal products. – Dec 15, 2020
