This chapter commences with an overview of the Malaysian halal logistics industry and reviews research on halal logistics studies from logistics service provider (LSP) perspectives. The terms ‘halal service/business’, ‘halal logistics’, ‘halal logistics service providers (HLSP)’ and ‘halal logistics performance’ are contextualised within Shariah law. The chapter then goes on to discuss some of the key elements that need to be considered in halal logistics. The final element of the chapter is a case study of a Malaysian logistics company. The resource-based halal logistics (RBHL) is an important aspect of successfully implementing halal logistics practices which produce positive effects on profits and market share by empowering halal service capability and by enhancing competitiveness. Halal potentially empowers sustainable performance antecedents by maximising profits, excellence products/services, ensuring well-being, observing religious requirements, as well as minimising cost or hardship, and ultimately the desire for Allah’s blessing.
