Its logistics solutions comprises six (6) core business divisions, namely:-

The Company commenced business operations in September 1975 following the issuance of shipping and forwarding licences by Royal Malaysian Customs. It then only offered customs broking services to a limited number of customers and our major operational office was located in Port Klang with a total staff strength of five (5). It later expanded its logistics solutions from customs broking to air and sea freight forwarding, trucking, warehousing and project management to fulfil our customers’ demands.
During the 1990s, the Group further strengthened its international alliances with NYK Group to facilitate one another’s business operations within and outside Malaysia. At the same time, the Group had also expanded its logistics solutions, staff strength and domestic network to serve its customers. By the end of 1990s, the Group had approximately seven hundred (700) staffs and eleven (11) business locations which cover the northern, central and southern regions of Peninsular Malaysia as well as East Malaysia.
With the above expansion, the Group is now ready to offer customised logistics solutions which includes integrated logistics solutions among different modes of transportation, total supply chain solutions, value-added services and door to door delivery services. Some of the proactive measures undertaken by the Group is the introduction of its new business division i.e. INSD to cater for international buyer consolidation services and the establishment of its in-house web-based IT solution (iT@SCO) for the use of its integrated logistics services.
As at 30 September 2008, the Group has thirty one (31) local offices, nine hundred and seventy one (971) employees, and serves approximately one thousand five hundred (1,500) active customers and receives support from approximately three hundred (300) active suppliers.
