 Honda’s division in Malaysia has opened East Malaysia Logistics Hub in Kota Kinabalu which will be operated and managed by logistics and shipping firm Giga Shipping.

Pre-delivery inspection (PDI) management undertaken by Giga Shipping will include standard key management system, washing bays for vehicles to be cleaned before delivery to dealers, security system to prevent theft, parking lot management system, stock monitoring, a kaizen system to ensure that vehicles remain in good condition while in storage, and a thorough inspection facility.
Giga Shipping currently operates Giga Car Terminal, which provides transit storage and handling facilities for most of Malaysia’s import and export auto marques within Westports. The terminal handled about 130,000 cars in 2014.
Aimed at easing the operational activities of Honda dealers, these logistics hubs are together the first step in the company’s expansion roadmap into East Malaysia and will reduce vehicle delivery periods for those areas from nine days to only three days. 
In addition to the new logistics hub, Honda Malaysia is also in the process of setting up a regional office, training facilities and parts warehouse in East Malaysia to support Honda dealers and customers there.
