POIC Lahad Datu Port – Vital for industrialization in the East Coast region
26th March, 2018


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The Impending opening of the container terminal at Lahad Datu is the realisation of the state government ambition in empowering economic development in the east coast of Sabah.

“The container terminal is an important piece of infrastructure that the government foresaw as vital to launch serious industrialisation in the east coast region,” said Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Haji Aman (pictured) as he was briefed on the completion of the POIC Lahad Datu Container Terminal project.

Located at the state-owned palm oil industrial cluster in Lahad Datu (POIC Lahad Datu), the container terminal with an annual capacity of 50,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent container units), will have its two sea-to-shore cranes installed by this week, and ready for operation.

Musa said the terminal, which Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak personally approved in 2012, will have a great impact in lowering the cost of logistics in Sabah.

“Logistics cost is a major component of operations cost. If this is reduced, it would help lower the cost of doing business in Sabah.”

With the completion of the container terminal construction which began in 2005, POIC Lahad Datu now has one of the best port infrastructures in the region. The industrial park had since 2013 operated a dry bulk terminal, an oil terminal and recently, a barge landing facility.

“This port infrastructure will unlock access to resources in the region, encouraging investors to go into downstream.

“Previously, investors felt inhibited because they required comprehensive port services if they were to venture into oleo chemicals and bio-chemicals because these export-oriented products require containerised shipping.”

Musa said POIC Lahad Datu harbour, with its deep draft, is now poised to be an important regional logistics hub along the busy Lombok-Makassar shipping route.

“Because of our deep-water port and the excellent infrastructure, we hope to be a focal point for the advancement of economic cooperation between the BIMP-EAGA territories, particularly in adding value to the rich natural resources in the area.”

POIC is the brainchild of Musa who envisioned the development of downstream industries based on palm oil and biomass that will create high-wage jobs and new wealth in Sabah.

Aside from POIC Lahad Datu developed by state-owned POIC Sabah Sdn Bhd, Sawit Kinabalu Sdn Bhd is developing POIC Sandakan.

A total of 46 companies are currently operating at POIC Lahad Datu, with total investment value of RM3.4 billion. Of the 46 companies, 24 are operating while the rest are at various stages of development and planning. A total of 1,200 jobs have been created to date.

CCN announces investment by Japan's Nicherei
By NST Business - April 17, 2018 @ 1:13pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Japan’s Nichirei Corp has made a strategic investment in Khazanah Nasional Bhd’s halal cold chain logistics company.

Khazanah yesterday said Nichirei, through its unit Nichirei Logistics, had bought a 40 per cent stake in Cold Chain Network (M) Sdn Bhd (CCN).

CCN chairman Datuk Mohd Rafik Shah Mohamad said the partnership will enable it to achieve its vision of becoming the leading halal cold chain logistics company in the region that provides total logistics solution to all its multinational and domestic customers.

CCN offers a complete cold chain logistics solution leveraging on its 200,000 sq ft one stop centre with modern facilities and logistics management system.

Westports registers RM123.8m net profit in Q1
By NST Business - April 25, 2018 @ 1:20pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Westports Holdings Bhd’s net profit decreased 12.13 per cent to RM123.8 million in the first quarter ended March 2018 from RM140.9 million in the corresponding period a year ago.

The group achieved an operational revenue of RM385 million lower than RM520.9 million in the same quarter last year, with container operations remaining as the most significant revenue contributor at 84 per cent.

The container operations handled 2.25 million TEUs in the quarter.

The Intra-Asia segment now constituted 61 per cent of the total containers handled, and this trade lane saw a favourable increase of 12 per cent.

Westports also continued to facilitate and support domestic economic activities as the gateway volume improved strongly by 25 per cent in the quarter.

Transhipment volume has also improved when compared with the preceding quarter to 1.48 million TEUs.

Group managing director Datuk Ruben Emir Gnanalingam said the results reflected the residual impact from the unprecedented realignment within the container shipping industry last year.

Even though the container volume is lower when compared to the corresponding period, both the gateway and transhipment volume, however, show improvement when compared with the preceding quarter in 2017, he added.

Under Day 2 of Ocean Alliance in its second year of operations, Ruben said Westports is now accommodating and handling the newest Ultra-Large Container Vessels (ULCV).

CMA CGM’s newest, largest and flagship container vessel, the CMA CGM Antoine de Saint Exupery with a carrying capacity of 20,600 TEUs, made its maiden call at Westports on April 17, he said.

Ruben added that on April 20, Evergreen’s newest and largest container vessel, Ever Golden on its westbound service to North Europe, also called at Westports.

“We have made significant investments of more than RM2 billion in recent years to enhance our container terminal facilities and equipment to be able to handle these ULCV, Ruben said.

“The capability to accommodate them, as the container shipping industry takes delivery of ever more ULCV, will strengthen Westports as the pre-eminent port for the nation’s gateway trade while also being one of the main transhipment hubs in the region,” he added.

DHL Express invests RM11m to build Malaysia Gateway
By Bernama - April 25, 2018 @ 11:38am
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider, will invest RM11 million and start construction of its Southern Malaysia Gateway in Johor this year

In a statement today, DHL said the Gateway will be purpose-built to meet the growing demands of Malaysia’s logistics sector, especially within the southern region.

“The DHL facility will be equipped with a 50,000 sq ft warehouse space and serve as a combined Gateway and Service Centre, for the import and export of shipments from southern Malaysia to the world, and for customer pickups and deliveries within Johor.

“The completion of the facility is planned for the first quarter of 2019,” it said.

Malaysia & Brunei Managing Director, Christopher Ong said with the e-commerce sector in Malaysia projected to contribute at least RM114 billion to the country’s gross domestic product by 2020, the new Gateway is expected to strengthen DHL Express’ global network and facilitate the movement of e-commerce shipments in and out of southern Malaysia.

“Solar panels will also be outfitted at the Gateway, as part of the company’s commitment towards achieving its zero emissions target by 2050,” he said.

Additionally, DHL Express Malaysia has signed a memorandum of understanding with GreenTech Malaysia to introduce a number of fully electric vans into its vehicle fleet as a pilot.

“This is the company’s pioneer introduction of electric vehicles in the country, and plans to include charging stations within its facilities are also underway,” said Ong.

DHL has about 360,000 employees in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide.

MISC allocates US$4 billion for capex
April 28, 2018, Saturday


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: MISC Bhd has allocated US$4 billion (US$1 = 3.92) in capital expenditure (capex) over the next five years with the aim of securing more floating production storage and offloading (FPSO), and shuttle tankers projects.

Its FPSO segment is grouped under offshore business and shuttle tankers comes under the petroleum and product shipping segment.

President and chief executive officer Yee Yang Chien said US$500 million would be set aside for potential FPSO and shuttle tanker contracts yet to be secured this year.

“However, that amount (US$500 million) can be increased if we bag more contracts this year.

“We foresee growth potential in the demand for shuttle tankers in the North Sea, as well as, North America, where we have a presence through our unit, AET.

“Let’s not be confused with the profit growth driver for 2018 which will be coming from the liquefied natural gas (LNG) and offshore business,” he told a press conference after the company’s annual general meeting yesterday.

Yee also said thirty per cent of the capex would be funded from equity and 70 per cent from bank borrowings.

The LNG segment contributed the majority of the company’s earnings followed by the offshore business.

Concerning its fleet, Yee said all 27 LNG vessels were chartered out.

“Out of our 14 offshore facilities, two will be coming off charters this year and another two will see its charter expiring in two to three years.

“But, these four offshore assets have a minimal impact on our bottom line,” he added.

2017 was a challenging year for the shipping and offshore sectors as growth opportunities were scarce, while revenue was under pressure from weak freight rates and contract renegotiation risks.

“We see this trend continuing this year but we expect an improvement after 2018 due to the steady rise in oil prices,” he said.

For the financial year ended Dec 31, 2017 (FY17), MISC recorded a 23.2 per cent decline in net profit to RM1.98 billion from RM2.58 billion recorded in the previous year, mainly attributable to a RM687.5 million impairment loss compared with RM358.8 million in FY16. — Bernama

PTP sets world record to depart over 19,000 TEUs vessel
August 24, 2018 @ 9:52pm



Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas became the first port in the world to depart a vessel with a final load over 19,000 TEUs. The milestone was accomplished on 18 August 2018 when Mumbai Maersk, one of Maersk’s 2nd Generation Triple-E vessels, left the port with the record load of 19,038 TEUs.
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP), a member of MMC Group, became the first port in the world to depart a vessel with a final load over 19,000 TEUs.

The milestone was accomplished on 18 August 2018 when Mumbai Maersk, one of Maersk’s 2nd Generation Triple-E vessels, left the port with the record load of 19,038 TEUs.

The vessel, deployed on the Asia-to-Europe Service (AE5) arrived from Shanghai, China to PTP and is now en route to Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands.

In a statement, PTP said the feat was accomplished with efficient planning and execution of container operations and good optimization of resources.

PTP chairman and MMC group managing director, Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, said the latest achievement is testament to PTP’s commitment in providing best in class service for our customers.

“As Malaysia’s leading ports & logistics operators, we take pride in our ability to anticipate and understand the needs of our customers as well as our agility to adapt to the changes of the industries that we operate in, in order for us to stay ahead.

“As such, we are very proud of this significant milestone as it is only made possible by the passion and commitment of our employees and all parties involved. PTP will build on our performance and deliver the service levels and productivity required to meet the demand of our customers and stakeholders,” he added.

PTP chief executive officer Marco Neelsen added that despite the robust conditions, PTP continues to witness a steady volume growth by delivering high efficiency in productivity and competitiveness.

“Various continuous investment and improvement activities have been successfully executed and are currently taking place to ensure that we are able to achieve our target set forth for this financial year, and more importantly to safeguard PTP’s position amongst the top transhipment hub in the world,” he added.

PTP is currently embarking on an ongoing equipment acquisition, preventive maintenance initiatives and infrastructure upgrading programme worth over RM1.2 billion. The programme includes the purchase of new quay cranes with spreaders, rubber-tyred gantries and prime movers, berth upgrading and the deepening of channel to accommodate the new generation of mega vessel that will berth at PTP.

PTP recorded a total throughput volume of 8.4 Million TEUs in 2017 and is projected to handle a total throughput target of 9 Million TEUs this year.

Malaysia shipping masterplan needs to be updated
November 8, 2018, Thursday


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The maritime industry policies such as the Malaysia Shipping Masterplan needs to be updated with elements of Industry 4.0 to strengthen the industry’s contribution to the economy.

Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry Ong Kian Ming said little attention was given to Industry 4.0 as the thinking behind the industry was not so mature before.

“With the launch of the Industry 4.0 policy recently and incentives announced in the 2019 Budget, I think it is a very good time for us to work with the industry.

“Players who want to move up to achieve Industry 4.0 standards can do so with the new policy,” he told reporters after the launch of the Malaysia International Marine Expo 2018 yesterday.

The shipbuilding and ship repair industry in Malaysia, which is a subset of the marine industry, currently employs over 15,000 people and recorded a total trade of RM6.1 billion in 2017.

Malaysia is now ranked the 18th largest shipbuilding country.

Ong emphasised that focus would be given to the smaller players of the maritime industry for the adoption of Industry 4.0.

“We hope that we can help them work together with these (big) players to see which area within the Industry 4.0 is the most important and relevant to them, and then align the new incentives structure within the budget and also industry 4.0 policy so that we can give special attention to this particular sector because there are 11 components of Industry 4.0,” he said.

Earlier in his speech, Ong said the Malaysian shipbuilding and ship repair industry was mainly driven by local players with the capabilities to cater for the naval and commercial sectors with around 100 shipyards in Malaysia with a majority of them in Sabah and Sarawak.

“There is still plenty of opportunity for the sector to grow particularly in the ship design, parts and components manufacturing, system integration and other marine equipment production,” he added. — Bernama

Bigger role for Sabah’s ports: CM
Published on: Friday, February 22, 2019


Quote:
SANDAKAN: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said the State Government is committed to developing ports in Sabah by taking into account future needs.

This includes Sandakan Port which has long been the focus of trade. “I am delighted that a new jetty is now ready and will allow us to cope with the growing needs of this area,” he told a media conference after opening the port’s new jetty, Thursday.

He said not only with neighbouring countries like the Philippines and Indonesia but also China and Japan, adding that this is a step forward as a mid-term effort.


“In future we need a port with larger capacity. For Sandakan Port our initiative is, among others, to cater to the needs and enable our trade to increase,” he said.

“In future, when ships from outside come not only are there products from outside but also products from Sabah to be exported, this is important,” he said, adding that this includes the presence of potential tourist vessels brought to Sandakan and tourists visiting interesting places here.

At the same time, he wants the Minister of Tourism to take a role in this regard, including thinking of what can be upgraded to beautify the district such as Sepilok and the Sun Bear Conservation Centre, among others.

The same goes for the development of ports across Sabah, including Kudat. In the planning is a proposal to create a railway route from Kudat to the State capital to facilitate the passage of freight forwarding.

Also present were Deputy Chief Minister cum Minister of Commerce and Industry Datuk Seri Madius Tangau, Minister of Health and People’s Wellbeing Datuk Stephen Wong, Chairman of Suria Capital Holdings Berhad cum Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd Chairman Tan Sri Ibrahim Menudin, among others.

Shafie said the Government not only wants to develop the port sector but also various sectors with existing initiatives.
“We have identified the Sandakan Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC Sandakan) as the centre for existing furniture. And I am streamlining with Yayasan Sabah and the State Forestry Department to assist the timber industry in Sabah,” he said.

“Not only in the field of plywood but also furniture. But furniture will take a bit of time.

“I have met with major industry players like those in Kota Kinabalu, among them Super Wood and Borneo Benar which not only produce domestic and foreign needs but also export to Maldives and Sri Lanka,” he said.

“I am confident it can create many job opportunities like Super Wood, which has employees comprising locals who live near the factory.

“The same goes for the industry in Sepanggar like KKIP with its glass industry, in Sipitang with the downstream fertiliser and other potential in other districts.”

Meanwhile, Ibrahim said the building cost of the pier is RM129.4 million and took 24 months to complete.

“The new pier is an important landmark for the construction of port infrastructure especially in Sandakan and the State to increase the efficiency of port services and facilitate trade and investment in Sabah.


“Sandakan Port is an important gateway for the State economic development because of its role in accelerating the economic activity in the east coast of Sabah,” he said.
In view of this, he said the need to expand the anchorage area for big trading vessels at Sandakan Port has been identified.

Sandakan Port has increased actively and is the second largest contributor to the earning of Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd after Sepanggar Port.

The port is not only dependent on palm oil but also become the gateway to travellers and passengers from the southern Philippines.

The port handles almost all types of cargoes comprising containers, general cargoes, bulk oils, passenger ships to ferry services and transhipment activities to carry the services and conduct transhipment activities. It consistently operates roughly 4.4 million tonnes of cargo a year.

Ibrahim said the project is among the company’s effort to upgrade port development as stated in the Port Masterplan, which also includes other ports such as Sepanggar, Lahad Datu and Tawau ports.

“Ports in Sabah were built over the last 30 to 40 years. Therefore, there is a need to upgrade and enhance port efficiency, as well as support Green Port initiatives to promote the use of state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure to meet the growing demands of port users and shipping ships,” he said.

He said Suria Capital, as a public company and Government-Linked Company in Sabah, plays a significant role in assisting the State Government provide a sustainable port service through its subsidiary, Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd.

He said during the concession period since 2004, Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd has assisted the State Government to reduce port infrastructure spending by more than RM1 billion. - Mardinah Jikur

Bintulu Port kicks off 2019 on strong note
Justin Lim May 28, 2019 23:48 pm +08

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (May 28): Bintulu Port Holdings Bhd’s net profit for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019 (1QFY19) expanded 26.6% to RM39.5 million from RM31.2 million a year earlier on higher revenue.

Its earnings per share grew to 8.59 sen compared with 6.78 sen previously.

Quarterly revenue increased 6.7% to RM178.38 million versus RM167.16 million in 1QFY18, thanks to higher revenue recorded in Bintulu Port, Samalaju Industrial Port and its bulking facilities.

“The port’s services recorded revenue of RM140.8 million in 1QFY19 which is RM8.49 million higher compared with RM132.31 million achieved in 1QFY18 mainly contributed by handling of LNG and palm oil cargoes and vessel calls,” it said.

The higher revenue also contributed by the operation at Samalaju Industrial Port which reported revenue of RM26.05 million against RM25.8 million in the corresponding year quarter, it added.

Revenue from its bulking facilities stood at RM11.53 million against RM9.06 million in 1QFY18.

Bintulu Port declared a first interim dividend of four sen per share, which will be paid on Aug 9.

On the group’s prospects, Bintulu Port said the handling of LNG cargo and vessel calls would remain as the main revenue contributors in 2019.

“Positive contributions are also expected from container, palm oil and cargoes handled in Samalaju,” it said.


However, the revenue growth for the year would be impacted should the tariff revision be implemented in 2019, it added.

Northport has potential to become automotive transhipment hub
Bernama July 09, 2019 21:13 pm +08
Quote:
PORT KLANG (July 9): Northport has the potential to become the region’s top automotive transhipment hub following the government’s exemption of the Approved Permit (AP) requirement on vehicles transhipped from local ports.

Port Klang Authority chairman Ean Yong Hian Wah said previously, vehicles entering the country were required to have an AP even though they were not bound for the local market.

“Due to the regulation, no ports, including Northport or Southport, had allocated any area as a vehicle transit site before the vehicles are sent to other countries,” he told reporters after his working visit to the Northport here today.

Also present was Northport (M) Bhd chief executive officer, Datuk Azman Shah Mohd Yusof.

Yong said following the exemption, which started on April 1, Northport planned to turn the port into an automotive transhipment hub -- a field which is currently dominated by Singapore.

“Currently, the Northport can only accommodate a maximum of 200,000 units of vehicles annually.

“However, they are planning to expand the space in the next few years,” he said.

Meanwhile, Azman Shah said the company planned to construct a multilevel car park — similar to the ones in Singapore — in order to accommodate more vehicles.

“We may also start looking for land around the port that would suit the purpose,” he added. — Bernama

Area Logistics set to ride on strong demand
By Kathy B. - July 11, 2019 @ 11:44am



Datuk Stewart LaBrooy

Quote:
DEMAND for industrial properties, in particular mega distribution, inner-city distribution and purpose-built centres, is holding strong despite a dim outlook for Malaysia’s economy.

Knight Frank Malaysia is expecting more high-tech manufacturers, especially from China, to make Malaysia their manufacturing hub, taking advantage of the country’s adequate supply of raw materials and relatively low operating costs.

Seeing demand spilling in from countries around the world, real estate private equity and advisory firm Area Management Sdn Bhd is setting up Area Logistics @ Ampang to tap business opportunities from multinational companies and local industry players.

Area Logistics @ Ampang is located on a 7.15ha site and expected to be fully ready by year-end.

Upon completion, it will be Malaysia’s first three-storey ramp-up inner-city mega distribution hub. With 1.5 million sq ft of warehouse space, it will be the largest of its kind in Malaysia.

The warehouse is coming up on the former site of a chip manufacturing company near Texas Instruments Malaysia Sdn Bhd, in the mature electronics manufacturing site at the Ulu Klang Free Trade Zone.

The Certificate of Completion and Compliance for the warehouse is expected to be issued in October, said Datuk Stewart LaBrooy, chairman of Area Management.

LaBrooy said the warehouse is purpose-built to serve the inner-city logistics and e-commerce supply chain networks.

It offers services such as self-storage, last mile delivery, warehousing, e-commerce, parcel sorting and cold-chain logistics.

With the completion of the warehouse, two-hour same-day delivery would become a reality, he said.

“The last mile is often the least efficient link in the supply chain. There is often delay of loading and dispatch from the warehouse, and in deliveries due to congestion in urban areas.

“There is also transportation downtime due to mall delivery restrictions and unsuitable mode of transports. Other issues include expansion of the e-commerce industry resulting in high volume of single-item deliveries and multiple attempts to deliver goods. We found a terrific site to build the warehouse and it will alleviate all these concerns.”

LaBrooy said location of the warehouse and the mode of delivery are key points to meeting demand and supply.

Area Logistics @ Ampang is well connected to highways and major roads, making delivery convenient.

Most of the major shopping malls are also within 13km radius of the site.

“We are excited about this venture. We have received enquiries from a number of industry players who want to take up space at the warehouse for their business expansion. We are confident the warehouse will be fully leased next year,” he said.

Area Logistics @ Ampang is accessible through the Middle Ring Road 2, Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway and Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway, as well as major roads like Jalan Ampang and Jalan Tun Razak.

Coming up is the new Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Expressway (SUKE) alignment, which is expected to complete in early 2020.

LaBrooy said SUKE alignment would allow for smoother traffic and reduce the amount of commuting time.

Traffic congestion on Jalan Ampang could be reduced by 36 per cent, MRR2 24 per cent and Jalan Cheras 12 per cent, he said.



Area Logistics @ Ampang is well connected to highways and major roads making delivery convenient.

TARGETING MULTIPLE PLAYERS

Area Logistics @ Ampang, with Grade A specifications, is targeting e-commerce players, logistics firms, third-party logistics companies and retailers which supply to major shopping malls within 13km radius of the site.

These include Suria KLCC, shopping malls on Jalan Bukit Bintang, Tun Razak Exchange, Sunway Velocity, MyTown, Berjaya Times Square, PNB 118, Bukit Bintang City Centre and Sunway Putra Mall.

“They are supplying to major shopping malls and would require a big space to store their items before delivery. These companies are expanding in tandem with e-commerce growth,” said LaBrooy.

He said Area Management is also in negotiations with multinational companies who are keen to take up to 50,000 sq ft of space at the warehouse.

LaBrooy said Kuala Lumpur has the largest retail market in Malaysia and with the rise of e-commerce, many retailers are trying to adopt e-commerce strategies.

“They need to create a 24/7 business model to complement their stores’ performance and drive sales. They also need strategic stock points near their retail outlets. They can use an efficient e-commerce provider to deliver online orders to their customers.”

LaBrooy said the four-storey warehouse including basement has been carved out into 15 zones to cater to individual players.

There are four zones on each floor except for the basement, which has three zones.

The warehouse has large floor plates of about 320,000 sq ft per level and three floor plates with fully-sealed docking bays catering fo 20ft by 40ft container trucks.

There is also high security features with full CCTV surveillance.

In addition, there is a separate car park, of which access will be through turnstiles and biometric/radio frequency identification device passes.

“Safety and security is the top priority at the warehouse. There will be full control of all entering and exiting vehicles, as well as the movement of people,” added LaBrooy.

Northport is the first Malaysian port to be awarded ISO 45001:2018

By Ayisy Yusof - July 17, 2019 @ 5:04pm

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Northport (Malaysia) Bhd became the first Malaysian port to be awarded the ISO 45001:2018 standard for management systems to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions.

Chief executive officer Datuk Azman Shah Mohd Yusof said it was important for the port operator to be certified with ISO 45001 to proactively improve its occupational health and safety performance in preventing injury and ill-health at the workplace.

“As one of Malaysia’s busiest ports, the efforts toward the certification is also a testament of Northport’s commitment to protect our employees, customers, contractors, service providers and port users from work-related accidents,” he said in a statement today.

The Lloyd’s Register’s assessor manager and country lead for Malaysia, Mohamed Azhar Sulaiman said Northport has put in tremendous effort to operate its business and activities to the highest level of occupational safety and health (OSH) management systems across its organisation.

“Northport has developed several initiatives and programmes that generated positive outcomes including reducing hazards and OSH risks, in the quest for providing safer and better workplace,” he said.

Northport’s journey towards ISO 45001:2018 certification began in 2012 when its health, safety & environment (HSE) performance was showing a very alarming deteriorating trend.

The journey towards HSE excellence was meticulously crafted and was divided into three phases within a period of nine years with the focus to improve HSE culture and eventually to be recognised locally and internationally.

The effort was further intensified after MMC Group took over the ownership Northport in early 2016. Under the new leadership, the initiatives in getting the certification were strengthened and immediate returns from the efforts was enjoyed with the improvement of more than 20 per cent on lost time injury (LTI) performance.

Among the HSE initiatives undertaken by the port is the health, safety and environment omission notification (HON), a mechanism designed to enforce safety compliance on the port users, contractors and employees within the port premises.

Azman said Northport had also introduced UCUX or ‘You See You Act’ initiative to promote and enhance incident reporting, which send incident alerts through the use of mobile phone via calls or text messages and action will be taken immediately.

He said Northport has enhanced its terminal surveillance with the use of a drone and closed-circuit surveillance system to ensure thorough monitoring and to strengthen the security of the port area.

Azman said the new system utilises the latest in video surveillance technology, including facial recognition, license plate character identification, intrusion detection and night viewing.

The fully integrated closed-circuit surveillance system is built on smart software that is scalable and upgradeable with features to fulfil the growing and evolving security challenges of the future.

“With its full implementation effective May 1, 2019, Northport is the first Malaysian port to use the integrated drone-closed circuit surveillance system round-the-clock to fulfil various port security needs including general surveillance, parameter monitoring and detection of suspicious activity,” said Azman.

Hubline aims to be all-round logistics operator
BY SHARON KONG ON JULY 31, 2019, WEDNESDAY AT 12:48 AM BUSINESS


Quote:
KUCHING: While keeping its eyes on dry bulk shipping, Hubline Bhd (Hubline) is pursuing its dream to be an all-round logistics operator in the state by expanding into aerospace and hopefully land transport in the near future.

The Borneo Post recently sat down with managing director and chief executive officer Dennis Ling and vice chairman Dato Richard Wee to talk about Hubline’s current operations and other areas of transportation they will be looking to undertake.

According to Ling, Hubline’s dry bulk division has been profitable since day one which is why the group focuses on this segment.

Currently, Hubine operates a fleet of 23 tugboats and barges, all of which are approximately at 10,000 tonnes, plying in the Asean region.

“The dry bulk division has been on the expansion mode. In 2016, we increased two sets, to bring the number to 23.

“We have another two which are in the shipyard, in the process of construction. One already came out in July, and another will be coming out either in October or November this year,” Ling said.

“Going forward, we see that there will be two sets (added) each year. We will also be replacing some of the older ones. The (fleet) size will be increased to 25 by the end of this year.

“Operations are all within the Asean region. We are operating in the smaller ports, where the waters are very shallow and big vessels cannot access,” he enthused.

“This is why we still have business (from dry bulk) because those big vessels can’t get in to (shallow areas). Things we carry are commodities like coal, gypsum, aggregates, scrap metal, palm kernel shells (PKS) and woodchips … these are the types of cargo we carry.”

With regards to its expansion into aerospace, Wee said this was part and parcel of its focus on Sarawak-centred activities such as the O&G sector in Sarawak and Sabah waters.

“The idea is to try to also be in that position so that we would be able to participate in the O&G industry where we (provide) the helicopter to take them to the platforms,” he said in regards to Hubline’s acquisition of a 51 per cent stake in Layang Layang Aerospace Sdn Bhd, for a total purchase consideration of RM14.198 million

“Apart from that, in the company that we have acquired (Layang Layang Aerospace), currently they are also providing medical services like flying doctors into rural areas for Sarawak and Sabah.

“They are also involved in aerial survey for the timber industry, as well as Petronas pipeline. Over and above that, on a charter basis, they do have some tourism in Sabah for those who want to have an aerial view, for example, but those are chartered services.”

Looking ahead, Wee highlighted that they are looking at transforming Hubline into an all-round logistics company, as they target to provide air, sea and land transportation services.

“Going forward, we are looking at transforming Hubline into a total logistics company. That’s why, apart from the bulk side, we acquired the aviation company, it is also doing that kind of services they do in the way of transportation,” he said.

“We are looking at air, sea and land eventually, all the total logistics that we can actually try to turn this company into.”

On land transportation, if the opportunity is present and prices are right, Hubline is all for venturing into this segment as well.

“We would also be interested to look into the land transport side also, if there is opportunity and if the price is correct.”

Kota Perdana logistics hub to be ready in two years — Mukhriz
Bernama August 08, 2019 00:59 am +08


Quote:
ALOR SETAR (Aug 7): The Kota Perdana Logistics Hub to be developed in the Special Border Economic Zone (SBEZ) in Bukit Kayu Hitam, is expected to be ready within two years, Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir said.

He said that it is in the process of applying for planning permission and its developer, Northern Gateway Sdn Bhd, has also identified a company which will be its strategic partner in carrying out the project.

“Northern Gateway Sdn Bhd is in the last stages of finalising a joint venture agreement with the company.

“The earliest to be completed would be the truck depot. So, it will not take too much time because as we announced recently, we opened the border round-the-clock and a number of trucks carrying containers has started coming in and the truck depot will be completed soon,” he said.

He said this in replying to a supplementary question from Datuk Dr Ku Abdul Rahman Ku Ismail (Bersatu-Guar Chempedak) who wanted to know when the hub would be completed, at the State Assembly sitting in Wisma Darul Aman here today.

Meanwhile, Mukhriz said the State Government had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Chinese developer Capital Global, to develop land owned by the Kedah State Development Corporation in the Kedah Science and Technology Park (KSTP) in Bukit Kayu Hitam.

“Global Capital will also provide the infrastructure development for the KSTP industrial park,” he said in responding to the original question by Ku Abdul Rahman who wanted to know the progress of the KSTP project in terms of infrastructure and investment.

State Industry and Investments, Local Government and Housing Committee chairman Tan Kok Yew told the assembly that 10 factory projects with total investment value of RM7.6 billion were approved in the first quarter of the year.

He said the investments would generate 1,920 jobs.

State Opposition leader Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor urged the State Government not to renew the contracts of two private companies responsible for managing five water treatment plants in the State, saying that it would better to hand over the matter to State-owned Syarikat Air Darul Aman (SADA), claiming that it would result in annual savings of RM80 million.
