Port Of Tanjung Pelepas / Malaysia www.ptp.com.my

The Port of Tanjung Pelepas has recorded tremendous growth from its beginnings in 1999 to becoming South East Asia's fastest growing container terminal which in 2003 handled approximately 3.5 million TEUs.

PTP also offers over 1000 acres of commercial and industrial free zone. The excellent connectivity via road, rail, air or sea that PTP offers has been a major factor that has attracted companies like BMW, Schenker Logistics, Maersk Logistics and Kenwood Logistics to set up operations here.

PTP is now preparing to meet the demands of the future with the development of Phase II which comprises an additional 2.8 Km of linear wharf. The first 2 berths which are under construction will be completed by mid 2004. Upon completion of the 2 berths, PTP will have an annual capacity of 6 million TEUs.

PTP bags Container Terminal of the Year 2004



Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) has been awarded the Asian Container Terminal of the Year 2004 at the Third Asian Logistics Award in Kuala Lumpur on Oct 7.

"The port is deeply honoured to have won this prestigious award especially in view of the highly competitive field in this category which included terminal operators for the Port of Singapore and Hong Kong Port," PTP said in a statement.

In 2000, PTP became the first Malaysia port to be named the Best Emerging Container Terminal, an award that was again bagged PTP in 2001.

"We believe that this award is recognition that it is not size alone that makes a great container terminal. There are many other factors such as throughput growth rates, current and future handling capacity, operational efficiency and the potential for future growth," PTP added.

PTP volumes in 9 months set record

By DONALD URQUHART

(SINGAPORE) Malaysia's Port of Tanjung Pelepas said yesterday it handled a record number of containers in the first nine months this year, up 20 per cent on the same period in 2003 as surging global trade continues to push record volumes through the region's container terminals.

In the first three quarters of 2004, PTP handled 3.03 million TEUs, up 20 per cent from the 2.52 million TEUs it handled over the same period last year, according to a PTP statement.

Transhipment cargo - the bulk of PTP's throughput - saw a 20 per cent gain with 2.9 million TEUs handled during the first nine months, compared with 2.4 million TEUs handled in the same period last year.

PTP attributed the rising throughput figures to the continuing global economic expansion, the increasing market share of local cargo and the addition of new services calling at PTP.

Local cargo volumes handled at the port rose 16 per cent over the period to 122,654 TEUs, compared with the just over 100,000 TEUs handled last year. Total throughput in the third quarter of 2004 rose 11 per cent to 1.02 million TEUs.

The port has two primary customers, mainlines Maersk Sealand and Evergreen Marine Corp, both of which were formerly PSA Corporation customers.

Surging global trade also boosted Singapore's two container handlers, with PSA Corporation reporting a 15 per cent rise in its local throughput to 15.3 million TEUs for the first nine months this year, while its total overseas ventures reported a 25 per cent rise in throughput to 9.5 million TEUs.

Jurong Port, meanwhile, said it was also experiencing record throughput growth, with monthly volumes of about 76,000 TEUs, a near-trebling of volumes compared to the same period last year.

The strong growth was attributed to new services introduced by existing customers, and existing customers phasing in larger tonnage, along with new customers.

Jurong recently wooed United Arab Shipping Co from PSA Corp based on a service package more tailored to its needs.

In the port's latest newsletter, Jurong Port president Fong Yue Kwong said the port will 'continue with its niche marketing which has served to keep the port growing and relevant. It is our aspiration to provide the best services and to grow together with our customers.'

Container handling at PTP up 20% since Jan

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), which is competing with Singapore for South-east Asia's sea freight, said it handled 20 per cent more containers in the first nine months of this year, as global trade expanded.

PTP said it handled a record 3.03 million 20-foot standard containers in the January-to-September period, according to a press statement. The number of vessels calling at the port increased 49 per cent to 2,378 during the period.

Half-owned by Malaysia's MMC Corp, PTP has been luring business away from PSA International, operator of the world's second-busiest container port in Singapore.

PSA last week said it handled 24.8 million 20-foot containers in the first nine months of this year, 19 per cent more than a year ago. It handled 15.3 million containers during the same period, a 15 per cent increase from a year earlier.

Taiwan's Evergreen Marine and Maersk Sealand, a unit of Denmark's AP MoellerMaersk, are among the shipping lines that have switched to using PTP as their South-east Asia stopover, attracted by the harbour's cheaper port charges.

PTP shares are not publicly traded.

The shares of MMC fell 0.5 per cent to RM1.98 yesterday morning in Kuala Lumpur.

PSA's shares are not publicly traded.

PTP opened two new berths in the third quarter, helping to increase the port's annual capacity to six million 20-foot containers.

The number of containers handled by it that were bound for another destination, or the so-called transhipment traffic, increased 20 per cent to 2.9 million 20-foot units in the first nine months.

Local cargo volume gained 16 per cent to 122,654 20-foot containers.

Malaysian ports are expected to handle 11.5 million 20-foot containers this year, 13 per cent more than a year ago amid rising trade, Malaysian Transport Minister Chan Kong Choy said last week in Kuala Lumpur. -- Bloomberg News

Malaysia could raise port service charges

BY P.T. BANGSBERG - THE JOURNAL OF COMMERCE ONLINE
8 October 2004
Journal of Commerce Online

Malaysia, which has some of the lowest transshipment charges in southeast Asia, is considering a standardized fee system that could bump up rates by as much as 10 percent.

Industry sources say Port Kelang Authority, which administers the Northport and Westport box complexes at Kelang near the capital, Kuala Lumpur, is finalizing a study for submission to the country's Transport Ministry.

The authority was asked by the ministry to devise a national port tariff policy that would cap how much local ports can charge for services. Many of Malaysia's older ports have not raised tariffs for as long as 30 years.

The Kelang agency is being assisted by operators at the Ports of Johore and Tanjung Pelepas in the south; Penang in the northwest; Westport and Northport at Kelang, and Bintulu and Kuantan, two smaller gateways, according to the local Business Times.

Details of the plan could not be independently confirmed.

"Everyone wrote to the Transport Ministry asking for different rates of increase. Thus, the ministry decided to entrust the whole exercise to PKA to convene a meeting of various port authorities and private port operators to come up with a simplified and standardized national port tariff," one source was quoted as saying.

Kelang charges 140 ringgit ($36) per 20-foot transshipment container, Kuantan 50 ringgit, Pelepas 200 and Johore 80. By contrast, Singapore charges the equivalent of $67 and Hong Kong $180.

PTP’s yard cranes guided by satellite


The Port of Tanjung Pelepas has equipped all its 57 rubber-tyred gantry yard cranes with SmartRail, a new system manufactured by Kalmar Industries that uses the Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) to pinpoint positioning accuracy.

(11/4/2004)

The DGPS can handle all RTG steering and positioning activities by itself, as opposed to requiring the RTG operator manoeuvre the RTG in the yard while loading and unloading containers.

Through the tight integration between the SmartRail system and the port operating system NAVIS, SmartRail aims to eliminate human error regarding confirmation and selection of containers during operations, avoid misplaced containers, reduce waiting time for the quay cranes during loading and discharge, and have 100% accuracy between container position in the port operating system and the actual physical location in the yard.

According to a PTP spokesman, retrofitting of the RTGs was completed in July, and the system’s performance over the past few months has been very encouraging, with noticeable improvements in operations productivity - attributable to the SmartRail system - despite the increased volumes handled this year.

He added that safety has also been dramatically improved, and any possibility of RTG related service failures have been eliminated since the system went live.

The ability to accurately track and position individual containers and RTGs has allowed the port to maximise its yard space and minimise wasteful double handling of containers.

Possible future developments and enhancements to the system could include dynamic deployment so that the RTG nearest to a particular prime mover is assigned to it, instead of prime movers being assigned to dedicated RTGs which may not be positioned optimally.

Phase two development on schedule: PTP
The Business Times Singapore - April 12, 2005

The Malaysian Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) said its phase two development is on schedule with 40 per cent more container yard space coming on stream in August as the six-year-old port breaches the one-million-TEU mark for the first time.

The container port posted a 5 per cent growth in container volumes for the first quarter this year over the same period in 2004 with volumes hitting just over one million TEUs. Most of this volume growth came from transhipment cargo which comprised 96 per cent of total volumes.

Local export cargo grew 37 per cent to 34,709 TEUs for the first quarter which PTP attributed to increased activity in its free zone where a new halal food distribution hub is being developed.

PTP said it will complete the first four rows of container yard blocks 10, 11 and 12 this month which will support the first two berths of its second phase expansion that it completed in July last year.

The remaining yard space will be completed by end-August, boosting capacity by 40 per cent, or up to 154,000 TEUs at any one time, PTP said.

By end-April, PTP will also complete the construction of a new power substation which will run the latest generation of 82-tonne super post-panamax gentry cranes. Capable of handling 40-ft container twin lifts, these cranes will be operational in the fourth quarter of this year.

PTP's phase two berths have depths of 19 metres, enabling them to handle ships up to 250,000 DWT, including the next generation of container ships up to 12,000 TEUs.

PTP gets ready for the big boys
Fairplay - May 17, 2005

Tanjung Pelepas, Singapore’s nearby rival for container transshipment cargo, is flush with capacity after added two berths as part pf its Phase Two expansion. A total of eight berths give the nascent port, which began operating in 1999, capacity of 6M TEU a year.



CEO Mohd Sidik Shaik Osman exudes confidence that PTP is geared to cater to the most exacting demands of lines during boom time. Almost all its cargo – the facility topped 4M TEU during 2004 – is derived from Maersk and Evergreen Marine.



There is no sign of any other major line leaving Singapore’s PSA terminals for PTP, which is preparing to accommodate huge container ships.



“There is no other port in the region where 100% of the berths and cranes can cater to 8,000 – 9,000 TEU vessels,” Sidik tells Fairplay. So, it could be just a question, which will add six berths, has been designed for ships of even 12,000 TEU.



PTP stresses efficiency
PTP has an edge over rivals with its lower handling costs, but Sidik stresses that PTP regards efficiency as its main strength. In the present times of plenty, the sees the cost factor receding into the background.



“The shipping boom has resulted in lines not looking at quick cost gains, but rather overall efficiency gains and analyzing how the ports can cater for their growth,” he explains.



PTP’s other big edge is space for “unlimited” expansion, which enables the port to offer dedicated facilities. Sidik discloses that feeder connectivity has “grown tremendously” since Evergreen’s arrival in 2002, resulting in multiple connections to all major Southeast Asian destinations. As part of its efficiency drive, PTP has deployed Kalmar’s Smartrail system, officially handed over on 14 April.



This uses satellite technology for its automatic steering system and provides automatic container position verification. It can be connected to yard management systems and has increased productivity through higher gantry travel speed, reduced crane shifting time and faster container handling, Sidik discloses.



Hinterland cargo is growing along with transshipment throughput, albeit from a lower base. PTP has already captured one-quarter of the Johor market. Free-zone tenants such as BMW, Linfox, Logistics and Schenker Logistics have contributed to this growth.



Sidik expects the first phase of the free zone to be “fully occupied” in 2005. Its second phase is expected to begin in mid-2005.



He plays down talk of overseas acquisitions: “While we have had offers to invest in overseas terminals, we have yet to embark on any,” he says.

Tanjung Pelepas: Newcomer puts pressure on rival
Robert Wright
23 May 2005
Financial Times

Standing at the port of Tanjung Pelepas, the distant cranes of a Singapore's container terminal can just be seen through the tropical haze. Given their intense rivalry it is hard not to imagine that the ports are glaring at each other across the strait of Johor.

Tanjung Pelepas at the southern tip of the Malaysian peninsula pulled off one of the most extraordinary coups in modern shipping in 2000. It sealed a deal for Maersk-Sealand, the world's largest container shipping line, to move nearly all its trans-shipment business away from Singapore - the world's greatest trans-shipment hub - to its newly built container terminal. The move lost Singapore more than 10 per cent of its container throughput.

Taiwan's Evergreen Shipping, the world's fourth largest container line by capacity, followed in 2002, taking another 5 per cent of Singapore's business. PTP, as Tanjung Pelepas port is known, started operations only in October 1999 but was last year the world's 16th busiest container port, handling 4.02m 20-foot-equivalent units (TEUs) of containers.

It is a remarkable success for a port that critics once said would never be used and that was constructed, highly unusually, entirely by private shareholders. It has also demonstrated the potential for a determined new entrant into the market for trans-shipment - the moving of containers between different seagoing ships - to take business from an established centre.

"PTP has been very successful," says Neil Davidson, container ports analyst at London based Drewry Shipping Consultants. "The big challenge for them now is to try to get the third big customer in."

The port was not initially designed exclusively to handle the kind of trans-shipment business which now accounts for 95 per cent of its throughput.

Brian Paul, corporate communications manager for the port, says Seaport Terminal Johore, controlled by Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary, a Malaysian tycoon, planned the terminal mainly for trans-shipment but also to capitalise on local economic growth.

Work started on the terminal, which cost $600m and involved substantial land reclamation, in 1993. But it opened after the Asian financial crisis when prospects looked grim.

Its fortunes were turned around by Maersk's unhappiness with PSA, Singapore's main terminal operator, which was charging high fees for Maersk's 2m annual TEUs. PSA had also refused to allow it to take a stake in a terminal.

Under the deal for Maersk-Sealand to move its business, AP Moller-Maersk, Maersk-Sealand's parent, took a 30 per cent stake in PTP. All Maersk's inter-lining - movement of containers between deep sea, long distance ships - in south-east Asia is done at PTP.

For Evergreen, the move from Singapore is thought to have brought a cost reduction of 30 per cent.

Other shipping lines call at PTP - including feeder operators that take containers between PTP and regional ports.

However, Mr Paul concedes that growth "has been very sporadic. Instead of organic growth we've had a huge step up then another huge step up. Many people are asking, 'When is the next huge step up?'"

To attract further customers, he says, the port needs to expand. PTP has already prepared quay space for a further two berths on top of its existing six.

PTP is likely to benefit if, as expected, Maersk completes its planned takeover of P&O Nedlloyd, the third largest container line, the business of which would then come to PTP. The port is also working on developing a freeport area to generate more direct cargo.

However, Singapore has slashed its prices and improved its relations with shipping lines since the two defections. It is widely believed to use its pricing system to discourage feeder lines from calling at PTP.

Some likely customers for PTP, including China Shipping and France's CMA-CGM, have opted to do their trans-shipment at Port Klang near Kuala Lumpur.

Yet PTP remains optimistic about its prospects. Beyond the turquoise and white cranes of the existing terminal, PTP has reclaimed nearly 3km of land for six more berths. With the two so far unequipped berths, they would more than double PTP's capacity, moving it closer in scale to its cross-strait rival.

RM1.5 Billion To Expand Flextronics Operations

By ZAZALI MUSA in Gelang Patah, Johor

Flextronics Group will be investing RM1.5bil over the next 10 years to expand its operations in Johor, Flextronics Asia president and managing director Peter Tan said.

The investment would be used to develop a fully integrated manufacturing centre at Port of Tanjung Pelepas' (PTP) free zone to house the engineering, printed circuit board assembly, plastics injection moulding and logistic operations in single location, he said.

The 1.3 million sq ft industrial campus was the largest in Malaysia under the Singapore-based company's operations and the second largest in Asia after China.

The company had invested about RM525mil in its Malaysian facilities in Senai, Tampoi, Tebrau, Shah Alam, Penang and Malacca, which together employ 18,000, he told a press conference after the signing of an agreement between Flextronics and PTP yesterday.

In Malaysia, the original equipment manufacturer serves multinational companies in the communications, printing and digital imaging, computing and automotive industries.

Tan said the company would consolidate its Malacca, Tampoi and Tebrau operations at the new centre, which would be fully operational next April.

“The new centre needs between 12,000 and 13,000 employees, including 1,000 engineers,'' Tan pointed out.



Peter Tan (right) exchanging documents with Datuk Mohd Sidik Osman after the signing ceremony.
The company operates six other industrial campuses in Brazil, China, Hungary, Mexico and Poland.

For its financial year ended March 31, 2005, Flextronics recorded US$16bil in revenue, of which 44% was from Asia.

PTP chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Sidik Osman said the port was currently talking to three manufacturers who plan to set up facilities in its free industrial zone.

“We are at looking towards the end of the year to finalise the talks and hopefully the projects could start early next year,” he said.

Japan Firm To Set Up RM374 Million Plant In PTP Free Zone

Japan Solderless Terminals (JST) through its Malaysian subsidiary, JST Connectors (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, will develop a one million sq ft integrated facility in the Pelepas Free Zone.

The plant, to be built over 12.58ha, will be developed at an initial cost of US$100 million (RM373.66 million) and will increase to more than US$200 million over 10-year period.

The new plant is for production, engineering, R&D, training and sales and it will be the most advanced of its kind, the company said in a statement on Aug 5.

"It will be part of JST's long-term goal of being the global leader in electronic and electric connectors," it said.

JST said the new plant would be part of JST's long-term goal to be the global leader in electronic and electric connectors.

The lease agreement was signed on Aug 4. Port of Tanjung Pelepas was represented by its chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Sidik Shaik Osman while JST was represented by chairman Miyoko Nishimoto.

A JST spokesman said JST decided to locate in the Pelepas Free Zone partly because of the lower overall costs of business and logistics facilitation, especially with their Singapore and Indonesian operations.

It said the other factors were the extensive and effective distribution network available through PTP to reach out to the company's global market.

JST has annual global sales of more than US$1 billion and a global workforce of over 6,000.

It supplies to leading companies and MNCs in the electronics, telecommunications and automotive industry.

Mohd Sidik said the entry of JST was the start of an industry cluster for the electronics industry in the Pelepas Free Zone, which over time will have a significant impact on the local cargo volumes handled by the port.
