On the 21st of April 2020, the Royal Malaysian Customs released a circular that instructed traders to re-appoint their Forwarding Agents through the uCustoms portal. This is in line with the RMC’s intention to have traders utilize the uCustoms portal, which is designed to provide a Single Window experience for traders and covers cargo clearance procedures. Re-appointments of forwarders through the system must be completed before the middle of May 2020 otherwise business continuity issues can be expected.

In order to appoint a forwarder, the importer must first know the forwarding company’s name and agent code.
