7 May 2020:
IIn view of the Malaysian Government's announcement on Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) starting 4th May 2020, we would like to inform that our documentation counters throughout Malaysia will operate with below hours in compliance with the regulations.
12th till 22nd May: 9am - 4.30pm (no lunch closure) in view of Ramadhan
27th May onwards: 9am - 12.30pm and 1.30pm - 5pm (normal operation hours)
To make it easier for you to manage any situations remotely, we have the below recommendations
- If possible, move to handling shipments via waybills.
- In case you do require original bills of lading, Maersk will be happy to assist with an “electronic release” of bills of lading – where we will keep the original bills of lading with Maersk and allow release of cargo to the consignee / nominated party on your request alone.
Our warehouses, depots and trucking services are now back to the usual business hours.
In case you are visiting our offices (except for document collection or surrender), please do
- Request for an appointment before arriving at our office. We are trying to stagger timing of people coming to our office to avoid a crowded environment.
- Follow the World Health Organisation recommendations on hygiene, available on the link (Click here).
Should you have any concern and/or queries, please feel free to contact your Maersk Local Representative, we will be happy to assist you.
Keep your business moving during the COVID-19 situation
We have outlined solutions which might help during this uncertain time. We are developing alternative services across the logistic chain where possible and our customer service teams are able to provide more context.
