Westports has been operating in Pulau Indah over the last 22 years, capitalising on the strategic location of the island which is only 12 nautical miles from one of the busiest trade lanes in the world, the Straits of Malacca. This strategic location has contributed to Westports’ rapid growth to become the busiest container port in Malaysia and a mega transhipment hub in Southeast Asia.

Subsequently, being centrally located in the South East Asia, Westports’ location allows us to capitalise on the long-term economic transformation of the ASEAN region. As GDP per capita increases in the coming decades, the propensity and need to meet basic and aspirational consumption will grow exponentially. With our overall operational efficiency and cost competitiveness, we believe we will grow in tandem with the long-term’s path towards higher income and consumption.

Likewise, we intend to elevate our position as the preferred hub for distribution and trading operations in South East Asia. With our seamless and integrated business processes, we have become one of the best in the world in what we do. Our proximity to Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) is another key factor why Westports has become a key spotlight to all industry players over the last decade.

More importantly, PKFZ compliments and presents an apt platform for Westports’ realisation as the preferred hub in South East Asia. Subsequently, the combination of regional service connectivity, the abundance of warehousing space, proximity to local markets and adequate labour supply among others, firmly position Westports as one of the leading hubs in the region. Furthermore, our high productivity and efficiency allows us to provide the full range of port services around the clock with minimal cost, delay and damages.

Additionally, the development of The Pulau Indah Industrial Park (PIIP), which is adjacent to Westports, will provide a greater opportunity for investors to be part of the largest private sector-initiated development in the region. This project’s strategic location will enable it to cultivate thriving business opportunities, innovative industrial solutions and to generate a substantial increase in employment opportunities.

Traditionally, we at Westports pride ourselves on our unique culture that motivates and drives our employees to produce the best results. Employees should never dread coming to work. Instead, they should look forward to their daily jobs. Our management team here at Westports, especially our HR team, have worked hard over the last two decades, to create a competitive and rewarding environment for the employees. It is our firm belief that jobs should not provoke stress in our employees. The work may be tough, but the culture we have designed has proven to alleviate the work-related stress.

The evolution of our culture throughout the years reflects brightly on the attitude of our employees. Westportians believe that attitude and processes to key businesses are treated as if one’s life depended on it. It is about the determination to stay focused and committed to delivering positive results. Wesports cultivates a tremendous sense of urgency and priority in every employee. Similarly, CSR activities are entrenched in all our employees. We take responsibility in ensuring we not only comply with the statutory obligations, but also in giving back to society by improving the quality of life among our employees, the local community and society at large. Basically, we have adopted Pulau Indah and its residents.

With an outstanding workforce, exemplary operations and un-paralleled productivity, we are well prepared to deliver the very best and overcome whatever challenges the industry is about to face. We have always been relentlessly committed to accommodating the growing requirements of our customers. This passion and commitment have reflected positively in our achievements over the past years. Westports in now a mega hub for both local and transhipment containers. Our handling capacity has been increased to 12 million TEUS with a target of expanding to 16 million TEUS annually upon the completion of CT9.
