Our Beginnings

Our roots go way back to 1975, where our company’s founder started their careers in the early days of the freight-forwarding and shipping industry in the east Malaysian state of Sarawak. Realizing the industry’s potential, he set out to build a business providing transportation and forwarding services to Sarawak Shell Bhd. and related oil & gas companies, with a handful of dedicated employees and limited facilities.

When the discovery of large reserves of natural gas was made off the coast of Bintulu in the late 1970s, it brought with it an economic boom to what was then not much more than a sleepy fishing village. Riding on the waves of development and economic growth brought on by the birth of the oil and gas industry, our founding father set out to establish a base here. In the 1980s & 90s, when major petrochemical projects such as Malaysia Liquefied Natural Gas (MLNG), ASEAN Bintulu Fertiliser (ABF), and Shell MDS (Middle Distillate Synthesis) began to establish their plants here as well as the mushrooming of timber related industries within the region, Harbour-Link Group was established to provide logistics services for these projects.

We have built a strong foundation         
                                    to ensure our future success


Building from its core business as a local shipping and forwarding agent, Harbour-Link Group has expanded its service offerings and now provides a comprehensive range of services – from customs tax consultation services, customs brokerage and documentation to warehousing, transportation, air, sea and land freight to heavy haulage, mechanical erection/installation, ship chartering, supply chain management and other specialized industrial logistical support services, which are available nationwide and across the intra-Asian region.

Our focus and emphasis on ensuring Total Customer Satisfaction has further driven the Company’s diversification into areas such as civil and mechanical engineering, building and construction, offshore marine support services, road safety training and consultancy services.

With the inclusion to the group of Eastern Soldar Engineering & Construction Sdn Bhd, a company with more than 20 years of experience in the field of oil & gas engineering, construction and infrastructure development, we continue pursuit of our quest to be a leading Malaysian Engineering Services provider. Backed by our expertise, extensive resources and operations support network, Harbour-Link Group is fully geared to provide complete turn-key project solutions to our customers both locally and on the international front.

Constantly on the look out for value creating opportunities, Harbour-Link Group has now forged into the shipping line industry with the acquisition of container and general cargo vessels. This move is a logical extension of the group’s value chain that promotes end-to-end shipment visibility and will enable us to continue fulfilling our commitment of providing services to our customers that are both comprehensive and flexible.
