The Malaysia Freight Transport Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, freight transportation associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Malaysia's freight transportation industry.

Two forces appear to be pulling the Malaysian freight sector in different directions this year. On the downside, the world economy remains somewhat troubled, and global demand has weakened. This means that Malaysian GDP and foreign trade growth is slowing down in 2012 compared to 2011. BMI predicts GDP growth at 3.3%, down from 5.1% last year, for example. But on the upside, the country's major ports (Port Klang and Port Tanjung Pelepas), along with land-based freight transport modes and air freight, all look like continuing to outperform relative to GDP for a variety of reasons. These include greater reliance on intra-Asian and local trade, the impact of fairly aggressive capacity expansion programmes and relative success in the management of corporate partnerships. As a result of these countervailing forces, we are holding our main projections unchanged compared to our last quarterly report.
