Abstract: The rapidly growing global halal market has given a unique window of opportunity which may enable Malaysia to become the global hub for halal food. Malaysia has already taken a lead by developing a halal assurance system which is now considered as the benchmark for a global assurance system and establishing the halal industry development corporation which driving a wide range initiatives. In parallel to these developments, the research communities around the world have also launched various projects to investigate issues surrounding the halal industry. Among them, halal logistics have attracted the attention of many researchers. However, a preliminary literature survey revealed that research in this area is patchy and no efforts have been taken yet to assimilate best practices emerging from various studies to formulate a framework which enable all stakeholders to work together to create an efficient, cost-effective and integrated halal supply chain. A coherent and holistic approach is required to ensure that a seamless halal logistics become the backbone of a global supply chain. This conceptual study proposed a research work that aims to fill this gap by developing a streamlined and integrated framework for halal global logistics.
