MALAYSIA’S PORTS

of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP)

to become the fastest

growing container port in

the region, reaching 1 million

TEUs within 571 days of

commencing operations.

It has since become the

third busiest container port

in Southeast Asia, the 17

th

busiest in the world and

the busiest in Malaysia,

registering 7.72 million TEUs

in 2012. Growth is driven

by its location in the Johor-

Triangle and is expected

to continue with the

development of Iskandar

Malaysia.

PTP is one of seven ports

worldwide chosen by

Maersk Sealand, the world’s

largest container ship

operator, to handle all of its

operations, including a daily

service between the Far

East and Northern Europe.

PTP’s capacity will be

expanded to over 95 berths

with docking facilities for

mega-container vessels.
