Ports in Malaysia

A port is a facility for receiving ships and/or transferring cargo. They are usually found at the edge of an ocean, sea, river, or lake. The best ports have deep water in channels or berths, and protection from the wind and waves. The major ports in Malaysia are Port Klang and Port of Tanjung Pelepas.
Port Klang
Port Klang is an important entry into Malaysia by sea. It was called Port Swettenham earlier. It is the busiest and the largest port in Malaysia. Port Klang is situated in Klang district in Selangor state.  Port Klang is served by many KTM Komuter stations that connect it to Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya, and other areas of Klang Valley.
Port Klang Free Zone
Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) is a regional industrial park and integrated free zone and an industrial zone that offers services for regional distribution, international cargo distribution, and manufacturing parks for product fabrication. It is situated along the Straits of Malacca. The regional industrial park presents many investment encouragements to investors to establish business and manufacturing facilities in PKFZ like tax exemptions on most products, industrial allowances, incentives for research and development, training and export. The port is easily accessible to Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The port is also connected to Northport and Westport in Port Klang.
Port of Tanjung Pelepas
This is a port for container ships situated on the eastern side of Pulai River in southwest Johor. The port has been registering good growth since its official launch in 2000. The fast growth, centres on the closeness of the port to the busy sea lanes on which the Port of Singapore sustained the growth for many years. Port of Tanjung Pelepas has placed itself as an alternative to Singapore’s terminals.. Sustained growth has been mainly possible after Maersk Sealand, the largest container ship operator in the world, took an equity stake of 30% in the port’s holding company. The port has 10 berths adding up to 3.6 km of linear wharf length and a 1.32 million square meters container yard having a storage space of over 156,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU). The total capacity of the port is over 8 million TEU annually.
Johor Port
The port is situated southwest of Johor in Peninsular Malaysia. It is the first port in Johor and services all kinds of cargo. It is the first port in the country to be situated in a free trade zone. The warehouses in the port are exempt from custom duties. Duty is charged only when the cargo is discharged from the warehouse for local utilisation. The annual capacity of the terminal is about 1,000,000 TEU. The port has berths totalling 2.4 km with about 200,000 square meters of storage facilities.
