Abstract

Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) has been Malaysia’s sole key player in the logistic industry of transporting people and goods via rail throughout Malaysia since 1948. The transportation company which will reach its 57th anniversary this year is now plagued with several serious problems that arise due to its inability to respond to the evolving market environment and customers’ demands. Problems, such as recent hikes in fuel prices, would have a direct impact to KTMB’s transporting operations. KTMB needs also to address its negative public image due to its inefficiency and current low capacity, especially with its intercity services. In addition, shortage of skilled staff, as well as old inventories and resources, such as coaches and old tracks, are also hampering KTMB in its quest to improve itself and meet future demands.With the burgeoning growth of other modes of transportation, such as the low budget air carrier, AirAsia, and modern comfortable buses that move people along the efficient highways of Malaysia, KTMB is indeed, in need of fast solutions to face its other stiff competitors if it wants to remain a key player in the Malaysian transportation industry.
