Vale is a global company headquartered in Brazil represented in 38 countries and employing over 100,000 people worldwide. In Malaysia, Vale set up a regional distribution center located in Lumut, Perak. The center became operational in 2014. As a regional hub, iron ore is to be shipped to Perak from Brazil for storage and then to be distributed to customers across the region.

During the first phase of its investment, Vale spent USD 1.37 Billion to set up a regional distribution center plus a designated port at Teluk Rubiah in Lumut.
