About Penang Port
Located in the state of Penang, in the north-west of Peninsula Malaysia, Penang Port is the oldest and longest established port in Malaysia. The port serves as the main gateway for shippers in the northern states of Malaysia and also the southern provinces of Thailand.
The port is strategically located along the Straits of Malacca, one of the busiest shipping routes in the world. Penang Port is fully equipped to handle all types of cargo such as containers, liquid, dry bulk, break bulk and others; and provides a multitude of services to cater for their safe and efficient transit via the port’s various terminals and facilities.
In order to further improve the operational efficiency of the port and to further enhance its service offerings, Penang Port was corporatized in 1994; and recently privatized.
The Port operates 24 / 7 and 365 days a year.
