"We will continue to see some growth in Port Klang for 2008. Looking at the current worldwide situation, it would be a big task for us to sustain this growth in 2009 as we see uncertainties in the global markets.

It makes it a one-stop scenario for the supply chain and logistics operators benefitting the end customers eventually.
