Malaysia shares a healthy import and export relationship with India and has a prevalent Indian diaspora, according to the company.

The newly established office will provide export and import services to and from India, Singapore, and Australia, along with handling local deliveries in Malaysia, it said.

"The expansion in Malaysia will add to our capabilities in the region and provide seamless shipping solutions to/from our global network, specifically countries like India, Australia, UAE, and the UK," said Subhashish Chakraborty, Founder and CMD of DTDC Express Ltd.

Malaysia exhibits a strong growth potential with its economy standing at USD 1.2 trillion, fuelled by the growth in local manufacturing, he added.

As per recent reports, the bilateral trade between India and Malaysia, currently at USD 20 billion, will increase to USD 25 billion by 2026, and "our expansion in Malaysia aims to capitalize this opportunity," Chakraborty said.

The new sales office will ensure convenient and cost-competitive shipping options for retail and MSME customers through the DTDC worldwide solution, the company said.

DTDC has over 16,000 physical customer access points and has a global reach of 220 destinations, as per the company.
