THE GUIDE TO MALAYSIA

Penang has been a major

passenger port since the

19

th

Century, and currently

operates a 24-hour car and

passenger ferry service

between George Town

and Butterworth, a cruise

terminal that can handle

the largest vessels afloat,

and Malaysia’s only inner-

city marina, the 102-berth

Tanjong City Marina.

During 2012, Penang

Port handled 30 million

tonnes of cargo, comprising

containerised cargo, liquid

bulk, dry bulk and break

bulk. Its long-term objective

is to become the preferred

container hub for the Bay

of Bengal, leveraging its

location at the heart of the

Northern Corridor Economic

Region (NCER) and the

Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand

Growth Triangle.

Port Klang is located on

the west coast of Selangor

directly facing the Straits of

Malacca, 40km southwest

of Kuala Lumpur. Formerly

known as Port Swettenham,

it is Malaysia’s leading import

and export gateway and

the 13

th

busiest container

port in the world. Home

to two container terminals,

Northport and Westport,

Port Klang opened in 1901

and has since evolved into

a sprawling metropolis,

home to many thriving

manufacturing industries

as well as shipping-related

businesses.

The Lekir Bulk Terminal at Lumut

Port can handle some of the largest

bulk carriers currently afloat.

With containers stacked like a giant 3-D game of

Tetris

in Northport’s vast

handling yard, it’s easy to visualize why Port Klang is one of the world’s Top-

20 container ports.
