MyCC Issues Proposed Decision Against Five Enterprises For Price Fixing
The Malaysia Competition Commission (“MyCC”) on 19 June 2015 issued a Proposed Decision against four Container Depot Operators,
namely Ayza Industries Sdn. Bhd./Ayza Logistics Sdn. Bhd.; ICS Depot Services Sdn. Bhd.; E.A.E. Depot & Freight Forwarding Sdn. Bhd.; and Prompt Dynamics Sdn. Bhd. (“the Container Depot Operators”) and an Information Technology service provider to the shipping and logistics industry in the Penang area, namely Containerchain (M) Sdn. Bhd. (“Containerchain”) for engaging in price fixing.
Upon completion of its investigation, the MyCC provisionally finds that Containerchain has engaged in concerted practices with the Container Depot Operators which resulted in the Container Depot Operators increasing the Depot Gate Charges imposed on their customers from RM5 to RM25 and the Container Depot Operators offering a rebate of RM5 to hauliers on the agreed Depot Gate Charges.
