Warm Greetings for the New Year and Welcome to Port Klang Authority (PKA)’s new official webpage.
We have made some changes to our webpage and we hope that you will find it more user friendly with improved browsing experience.

Dear Friends, the global shipping industry underwent major changes in 2017, restructuring existing alliances and forming new ones while several companies with significant tonnage and market share merged or were acquired by bigger lines. These changes were necessitated by the need to improve efficiency, reduce costs and provide value added services to customers as a result of the rapidly changing landscape in the global logistics industry. In 2017, Port Klang handled 11,978,466 Teus where 9,022,756 Teus were handled by Wetsports and 2,955,710 Teus handled by Northport. Though the overall volume dipped 9% compared to 2016, mainlly attributed to the shift of transhipment cargo by shipping lines to other ports, gateway cargo registered an increase of 6% underlining strong fundamentals in Malaysia’s economy as a major manufacturing hub in the region. Demand for logistics facilities continues to grow with occupancy at Port Klang Free Zone, a 1000 acre Special Economic Zone wholly owned by Port Klang Authority at nearly 90%, generating revenue of RM 78 million in 2017, an increase of 100% since 2012. Despite the setback last year, Port Klang continues to expand its port handling capacity having confidence in the bullish domestic economy and the growth in regional and global trade. Westports have completed its Phase 1 development with CT9 commissioned in December 2017, raising it annual capacity to 15 million TEUs. The terminal has also recently secured approval from the government to embark on Phase 2 development where its capacity will be doubled to 30 million TEUs with the development of CT10 to CT19 by 2035. At Northport, the upgrading of Wharf 8 was completed in 2017 where the terminal is now able to handle 18,000 TEUs vessels along a berth length of 550 metres at the same time boosting Northport’s annual capacity to 5.8 million TEUs.

Besides this, Port Klang is finalising plans to develop a third terminal at Carey Island, an integrated facility capable of meeting future demands. Earmarked to embrace full automation and extensive green port features, the terminal will comprise container, bulk and breakbulk facilities supported by industrial, commercial and logistics activities within a 120 sq. km landbank to be developed over a period of 30 years.      

Port Klang is also positioned as a key player in the Maritime Silk Road initiative spearheaded by China with the formation of China-Malaysia Port Alliance comprising 9 Malaysian ports and 12 Chinese ports. Over the last 2 years, several initiatives have been rolled out by the Port Alliance in promoting trade, shipping and logistics services between the 2 countries besides developing synergies in trade facilitation, information exchange and human resources training.  

Under the National Logistics and Trade Facilitation Master Plan, which aims to provide a strategic direction to improve the productivity and competitiveness of Malaysia’s logistics industry, Port Klang is earmarked for further infrastructure enhancement with a long-term plan to transform it into a regional maritime centre.  Another initiative that is set to give Port Klang a boost is the implementation of the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) which leverages on Ali Baba, the renowned e-commerce platform to connect Malaysian exporters to China’s huge consumer market. As part of Ali Baba’s Electronic World Trade Platform initiative, the DFTZ aims to provide Small and Medium Enterprises a conduit to overseas markets minus the complex regulations, processes and barriers besides championing Malaysia as a regional transhipment hub for ASEAN.  The first phase of the initiative was recently launched to facilitate exports, imports and transhipment of air cargo via Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and  the 2nd phase will involve Port Klang where bulk goods can be traded through the e-commerce platform and moved directly via the port.

Port Klang Authority is looking forward to meeting the challenges of an unpredictable  global economy, closely working with terminal operators, shipping lines, shipping agents, cargo principals, logistics services providers, government agencies and other stakeholders without whom Port Klang’s success would not have been possible. Together, we will chart a new course in driving Port Klang to greater heights to be  among the best in the world.
Thank you once again for your kind support.
