Malaysia’s most advanced container terminal, the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (“PTP”) is strategically located at the confluence of the main east-west shipping lanes, offering Shipping Lines minimal deviation time of 45 minutes. PTP is situated in a sheltered bay and has no tide restrictions.
Local cargo movement to major industrial estates is accessible through the second Malaysia-Singapore expressway and the north-south highway. In addition to road, sea and air inter-modal linkages, PTP is also connected to the national rail grid passing through Peninsular Malaysia from Singapore to Southern Thailand.
PTP has 14 linear berths totalling 5.04 kilometres. The terminal is equipped with 58 Super Post Panamax cranes, 16 of which have a 24-box outreach catering for the next generation of Triple E size vessels. These cranes also have twin-lift capability to further enhance productivity. PTP’s current average over 32 moves per hour/crane, and berth productivity stands at 100 moves per hour minimum.
Easily accessible from the Straits of Malacca, PTP is situated on the eastern side of the mouth of the Pulai River in South-West Johor. PTP is a naturally sheltered deep water port and is near the Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing.
The terminal operations are also backed by state-of-the-art information technology system with links to all port users. By synergizing all of the port’s operations and communication centres, the I.T. network system facilitates a free-flow of real-time information and provides near paperless transactions between shipping lines, forwarders, shipping agents and the port ensuring high productivity.
