MASkargo Gets It On Halal
MASkargo Halal

“We are most probably the first Cargo Terminal Operator in the world to be classified as a halal cargo handler from a globally recognized and renowned Islamic Affairs Regulator for halal products,” Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh, MASkargo’s Chief Executive Officer said after receiving certification from the Malaysian Department of Islamic Development (JAKIM), that MASkargo is now part of the halal logistics chain.
  If that sounds like MASkargo pulled an inside straight, you’ll get no argument from us.
  But what gets our attention is MAS getting it on halal in air cargo.
  Recognizing a market and going after it is something to shout about here.
  Very cool, original thinking gets it every time and must always be welcome in air cargo, above and below deck.
  “The global halal market is right now worth close to USD$2 trillion per annum,” Mr. Salleh declared.
  “We are ready, capable and certified to tap the halal market,” he said.

  If you live in the U.S. and might fancy some fresh durians grown in Malaysia, the cost on Amazon is approximately USD$120 for a single six-pound fruit.
  But that is not the only thing that might slow up your purchase.
  In China, durians are all the rage as MASkargo reported a big charter shipment of durians recently.
  A native of Southeast Asia, durian is considered the king of fruits.
  It is incomparable in both smell and taste, as well as famous for its big size, thorny and thick shell, intense aroma and strong taste. The smell of durian has often been described as repulsive, however for some, its smell is pleasingly sweet.
  Until just recently, May 30 to be exact, durians could not even be exported from Malaysia, except in pulp or paste.
  So now whole Malaysian durians can be flown into China.
  The MASkargo team in KL worked with the Malaysian Quarantine & Special Services Department (MAQIS), inspecting whole durians earmarked for China, whilst outside on the hardstand, the big airplane awaited loading of the four-ton fresh fruit charter late into the night.
