SEPANG, Malaysia: June 19, 2019. MASkargo has joined the durian craze bandwagon by flying four tonnes of frozen durian fruit to Shanghai from Kuala Lumpur via Kota Kinabalu.

“Previously, Malaysian durians could only be shipped into China in pulp or paste form. The regulation is no longer applicable and now frozen whole Malaysian durians can be flown into China. This is a great development for us in terms of expMAS Kargo Frozen Duriansanding our business," explained Jason Thomas, MASkargo’s Chief Commercial Officer.

"The boom in durian export follows the deregulation by China which now allows whole durians from Malaysia to be imported. The fruits are a big hit in China and we are happy to be part of this demand. From the acceptance at our Perishable centre, these fruits are kept fresh in our cold rooms before being shipped in the temperature-controlled Envirotainers.

“We are working very closely with the Malaysian Quarantine & Special Services Department (MAQIS) to ensure that all the stringent export requirements are met and will be putting in more efforts to the smooth operations of these shipments, as we are expecting more durians coming through our flights to China. At the same time, strong collaborations are in place with the ground handlers in China for seamless operations there too," he continued.

“We would like to thank the exporter, BEHO Fresh Sdn Bhd, and the durian processing factory, PHG Ever Fresh Food Sdn Bhd, for choosing MASkargo for this inaugural delivery. We would also like to congratulate both companies and those who have passed China's stringent import protocol for frozen whole fruit durians into the country,” Thomas concluded.
