Westports primarily manages port operations dealing in container and conventional cargo. It also provides a wide range of port services, including marine services, rental services and other ancillary services

Westports is located in Port Klang and it is one of the three main ports in the Straits of Malacca that handles gateway and transhipment container cargo, all of which are located in close proximity to the main shipping route along the Straits of Malacca. These ports have the advantage of natural deep water berths which allow them to accommodate large vessels.

Westports serves as the main gateway for container and conventional cargo for central Peninsular Malaysia hinterland.

Our container business has grown exponentially from 20,000 Twenty-foot Equivalent Units ("TEUs") in 1996 to 9.9 million TEUs in 2016. Our market share of container business represents 76% in Port Klang, 18% in Straits of Malacca and 10% in South East Asia as at 2016.

Our success is attributable to our strategic location, deep channel and wharf, linear berth, high productivity, dedicated young and vibrant employees, connectivity to more than 350 ports around the world, amongst others.

We have 28 berths with a length of 7,542 metres, of which 21 berths are connected in a straight line measuring 5,700 metres. Our container handling capacity stands at 12 million TEUs and our capacity utilisation ratio is at 83% in 2016. We are in the midst of expanding our capacity to Container Terminal 8 ("CT 8") and Container Terminal 9 Phase 1 ("CT 9 Phase 1").

Our conventional terminal handled 11.8 million tonnes of bulk cargo in 2016. The bulk cargo comprises mixed steel, steel coils, project cargo, animal feed, edible products, fertilisers, building-related cargo, palm oil, petroleum, chemical and liquefied petroleum gas. It represents 62% market share of conventional cargo handled in Port Klang.
