In ensuring that more people in Malaysia are getting the much-needed help during the COVID-19 pandemic, Northport (Malaysia) Bhd (Northport), a member of MMC Group and Shin Yang Shipping Corporation Berhad, a member of Shin Yang Group jointly supported the Malaysian Relief Agency’s (MRA) relief mission to help the frontline healthcare workers and the communities affected by COVID-19 in Sabah and Sarawak.

More than 10 tonnes of supplies worth RM1.24 million consisting of medical equipment and food packs were successfully collected by MRA for this mission. The aid items were packed in three containers and shipped to Kuching, Sibu, Kota Kinabalu and Tawau using Shin Yang’s shipping services via Northport.

Under this joint Corporate Social Responsibility programme, Northport provided support through the handling of the aid items at MRA’s warehouse in Petaling Jaya and at the destinations, as well as the provision of storage and port services at Northport’s container terminal. Meanwhile, Shin Yang, one of the main shipping lines providing shipping services between Port Klang and East Malaysian ports, supported the mission by providing three containers as well as special slots for these containers in their vessels.

To mark the occasion, a simple flag-off ceremony was held at Northport on 21 August 2021. Present during the ceremony were Dato’ Azman Shah Mohd Yusof, Chief Executive Officer of Northport and Dr Mohd Daud Bin Sulaiman, President of MRA.

The supplies contributed by MRA donors for this mission consist of medical items and equipment including ICU beds and mattresses, ECG systems, ventilators, infusion pumps, syringe pumps, laryngoscope, face masks, personal protective equipment and 500 packs of food items.

“This collaboration is a platform and an opportunity for Northport to stand together with our business partners to help those in need during this crisis. We are very pleased to offer our expertise and facilities to help organisations such as MRA in ensuring the success of this noble initiative,” commented Dato’ Azman.
