KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 19): Edaran Bhd has been appointed as a National Single Window (NSW) service provider by the Royal Malaysian Customs Department.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia today, the information technology company said it secured the job via its wholly-owned subsidiary, Edaran IT Services Sdn Bhd (Edaran IT).
It said the appointment as the NSW service provider is subject to the issuance of the Certificate to Operate (CTO) upon testing and approval by the government, which is valid for a period of two years and renewable every two years.
