Westports Holdings Berhad ("WHB" or "the Company") would like to announce that it has achieved a container throughput of about 9.0 million Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit ("TEU") for the twelve-month period ended 31 December 2017.

The services will start in April 2018, and Port Klang continues to be one of the leading transhipment hubs in the region for OCEAN Alliance.
