Ericsson has commissioned a new facility at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) that will expand its regional distribution capacity and support the operations of customer networks in the Asia Pacific region.
The Ericsson Distribution Centre will cater to more than 20 countries and is responsible for the inventory of new and serviced equipment as well as inventory replenishment, receiving equipment from other countries and delivering serviced equipment in the Asia Pacific region.
The new distribution facility will complement the Maintenance and Support Center in Malaysia.
Malaysia is a very strategic location for Ericsson and the new distribution facility strengthens our commitment here, while creating both direct and indirect employment opportunities for Malaysians.
The capability to respond, deliver quickly and ensure minimal downtime for mobile network operators and end-users places Malaysia in a very strategic position to serve the telecommunications industry,
This is especially critical as countries in the region begin accelerating their 5G commercial rollouts while also strengthening their 4G deployment.Head of Ericsson Malaysia, Sri Lanka & Bangladesh, David Hägerbro.
The 68,000 sq ft distribution centre is located at the Cainiao Aeropolis Electronic World Trade Platform (eWTP) Hub at KLIA’s Cargo Village and operated by CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s largest supply chain management companies.
