Chairman's Message

Tan Sri Datuk G. Gnanalingam First and foremost, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation to all our partners for your business and continuous support. I'm deeply impressed by your relentless contribution in promoting Port Klang, Westports Malaysia, in particular, as the preferred port of call in this region.We will not be where we are today without your support and once again, thank you.

Westports Malaysia is a leading port in the world supported by superior productivity and water depth of 15-17.5 meter. This makes us the preferred hub port for the shipping lines in this region.

Our container volume has grown exponentially over the years and we are the leading terminal operator in Port Klang controlling 75% of the market share in container volume throughput as at end of 2017. We have handled 9.02 million twenty-foot equivalent units (“TEUs”) container throughput and 10.93 million metric tonne of bulk cargo in 2017. 

The productivity in terms of container moves per hour (“mph”) in Westports is among the highest in the world, averaging 30 – 35 mph per crane compared to the industry standard of 27 mph, therefore translating into faster turnaround for vessels that makes our port their home. We are not resting our laurel but to continue to challenge ourselves to raise our performance bar, delivering our utmost best is the commitment that we have pledged to all our valued partners.

Our CT9 expansion of 600m wharf is completed and fully operational since late Dec 2017. With the contiguous quay length of 5.8 kilometres and 67 ship-to-shore cranes, we have the capacity to handle 14 million TEUs per annum.

Westports is a truly Malaysian Port with over 4,000 workforce in the company all being Malaysian, and many are from the island where Westports Malaysia is situated, Pulau Indah. The hardcore poor and poverty in the Island has been reduced drastically and hence making us a truly Corporate Social Responsibility Malaysian Port.

As the Executive Chairman of Westports Malaysia, once again, I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to all my friends and business partners around the world, YOU are the one who have made us the Mega Hub in this region.
