The Express Delivery industry is undergoing a challenging time. Business sustainability is at stake as the result of serious price undercutting among the licensed players. As an essential service to the country, the industry needs to be transformed to enhance sustainability and to support the needs of the community. It is our role to be a key driver of economic growth for the country.
In February 2020, AMEC has been appointed by MCMC to undertake the role of managing the Postal Forum. At the same time, MCMC has approved the Chief Secretariat Officer (CSO) of AMEC to take on a dual role for the Postal Forum. The Captains of our industry should take this opportunity to work together to ensure all the stakeholders and consumers are protected.
AMEC is taking the necessary step to revise some of our Articles of the Association to make them more up to date after recent changes of the requirements set by MCMC to administer the Postal Forum and also to empower it to better serve its members. The provisions are updated to meet the current requirements and the future trends of the industry. As such we hope that all the Non-Universal Postal License (courier) holders will join our Association for the benefit of all.

During the last 2 years when the world is challenged by Covid 19 pandemic where almost all nations on earth are on lockdowns, consumer behaviours have changed dramatically to adapt to the new norms. E-commerce for one, has boomed exponentially with the volume of postal and courier had doubled in Malaysia. AMEC, in close collaboration with the main regulator of the postal and courier industry, MCMC under the purview of the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia are working very hard to quickly develop the industry to benefit not only the industry players, but also the consumers.
Due to the sudden surge in demand for courier and postal services during the pandemic, the industry has to quickly find a wholistic and long-term solutions to cater for future demands which is expected to triple from pre-covid 19. Digitalization of consumer experience and digitalization of the industry operation is one key success factor to absorb this sudden surge. While business opportunities abound, the industry has to be closely monitored and regulated so that the industry can flourish symbiotically not only amongst themselves, but also with the small and medium sized businesses that support it.
The contribution of this industry to the nation is astronomical with employment reaching up to 150,000 employees of various levels, with the B40 group making up the largest group. While the industry flourishes at such a great speed, its transportation requirements increase too. AMEC, with the strong support of the government agencies and authorities are currently working on reducing the carbon footprints in cities and rural Malaysia that the industry touches. We are confident that in years to come, the industry does not only rise as one of the fastest and most profitable businesses in the world, but also be the impetus to be the most environmentally friendly industry in Malaysia.
