About Kuantan Port
Kuantan Port Consortium Sdn Bhd (Kuantan Port) is 60:40 owned by IJM Corporation Berhad and Beibu Gulf Holding (Hong Kong) Co. Ltd.
Established in 1974 under the Kuantan Port Authority, Kuantan Port has come a long way since its inception. With full operations commencing in 1984, it has emerged as the port of choice in the South China Sea region, steadily gaining prominence over the years. In 1998, Kuantan Port underwent privatisation to Kuantan Port Consortium Sdn Bhd.
After nearly four decades of successful operation, the ambitious idea to expand the port took shape in 2013. Fast forward to today, and Kuantan Port has transformed into two ports – Kuantan Port 1 and the New Deep-Water Terminal (NDWT), with the latter commencing its first phase of operation in 2018. Kuantan Port 1 boasts a maximum 12-metre draught, allowing it to accommodate vessels of up to 55,000 deadweight tonnes. It is equipped to handle various types of cargo, including containers, and has become a hub of versatility in port operations.
The New Deep-Water Terminal (NDWT), with its 16-metre depth, is a game-changer. Capable of accommodating vessels of up to 180,000 deadweight tonnes, three times larger than Kuantan Port 1. It primarily focuses on dry bulk and break-bulk cargoes in its first phase and is designed to operate with semi-automation, requiring minimal manpower compared to Kuantan Port 1.
Strategically positioned on the eastern seaboard of Peninsular Malaysia, right at the heart of the bustling petrochemical industry, Kuantan Port has emerged as a major force in the east coast region. The port is equipped with top-of-the-line facilities and services and boasts an extensive market outreach and a robust global shipping network. With these unparalleled resources, Kuantan Port is set to drive the rapid expansion of industrial and manufacturing activities in the dynamic East Coast Industrial Corridor.
