SFFLA monitoring free storage trial run

SELANGOR Freight Forwarders & Logistics Association (SFFLA) will monitor the trial run of the implementation of the three-day free storage period for containers at Port Klang that started last Saturday.

The two-month trial run is to ensure the smooth implementation of the regulation that will come into force effective from Jan 1 to reduce the period for containers to store at Port Klang terminal for free from five days in the past to three days.

The implementation of the shorter container storage period had been postponed several times in the past couple of years.

SFFLA honorary secretary general Wee Ah Sah said the association would monitor the trial run of the new regulations on a weekly basis.

“We have to identify the hitches and iron them out,” he said.

The implementation of the shorter container storage period has been postponed several times in the past couple of years.

He said Port Klang Authority (PKA) should set up a communication platform for all players involved in the smooth running of the new regulations.

According to PKA, the shorter free storage period for containers is in accordance with international standards, and would improve the utilisation of containers and maximise usage of container yard space.

With the lower fuel price, Wee said the association had on Nov 1 lowered fuel surcharge for container freight station to RM1.50 from RM2.50 per freight tonne on Nov 1.
