RoRo Shipping To East Malaysia

I was searching for a company to send my motorcycle to Kuching, Sarawak via Roll-On/Roll-Off (RoRo) vessel for my Borneo ride trip. I found many companies who provides shipping Car or Motorcycle to Sabah or Sarawak and some are even cheaper but the reviews has been negative.

This article is created based on my solo Borneo Ride to explore the beautiful Malaysia.

Pos Malaysia Logistic

I’ve chosen Pos Malaysia Logistic as they have 30+ years in experience and I can also deal with them directly. i.e. No Agent / middle man involved. If you’re planning to ship your vehicle to East Malaysia or vice versa, you can use my article as a guideline. Apart from Pos Malaysia, the other company that you can use (seems to be cheaper) is GiGa Shipping.

Pos Malaysia Logistic uses three vessels and they are as per below:

  • (Malaysian Star) MS
  • (Positive Brave) PB
  • (Positive Pioneer) PP

Again you did not disappoint Chris. Your explanation is crystal clear and more importantly, your sense of sharing important information to the biking community is priceless. How is the bike secured on the vessel. Is it put into a container or tied down?
