WHAT IS HALAL LOGISTICS?
Halal logistics is the process of managing the material flow and information flow throughout the supply chain in accordance to a halal standard. The material flow covers the transport, storage and terminal operations. The information flow covers the management of the data in the supply chain, such as product information, demand data, and halal logistics label and code. Halal logistics is a system based on segregation instead of detection.
Halal products are segregated from non-halal products to:
1. Avoid (cross) contamination
2. Avoid making mistakes
3. Ensure consistency with expectations of the Muslim consumer
LBB International, a multinational logistics advisory, research and supply chain management firm with offices in The Hague, Kuala Lumpur, and Bangkok, has developed expertise in the area of halal logistics and assisted governments and multinationals in developing halal-compliant supply chains.
The company holds the Secretariat of the International Halal Logistics Standard (IHI AS 01) under the International Halal Integrity Alliance (an OIC organization). In Malaysia, LBB has launched the internet portal halalStorage.com, an online marketplace for the demand and supply in halal storage. This portal facilitates in the search process for halal storage worldwide.
