About the recruiter

Westports Malaysia is a leading port in the world supported by superior productivity and water depth of 18.5 meter. This makes us the preferred hub port for major shipping lines in this region.Our container volume has grown exponentially over the years and we are the leading terminal operator in Port Klang, controlling 76% of the market share in container volume throughput as at end of 2016. We have handled 9.95 million twenty-foot equivalent units(“TEUs”) container throughput and 11.8 million metric tonne of bulk cargo in 2016. This is a phenomenal performance considering the fact that we only started operations in September 1994. The productivity in terms of container moves per hour (“mph”) in Westports is among the highest in the world, averaging 30 – 35 mph per crane compared to the industry standard of 27 mph, therefore translating into faster turnaround for vessels that makes our port their home. We are not resting on our laurel but to continue to challenge ourselves to raise our performance bar, delivering our utmost best is the commitment that we have pledged to all our valued partners. The Container Terminal 8 (“CT8”) Phase 1 expansion was completed in mid-2016. The latest CT8 Phase 2 expansion is on schedule, and the additional 300-metre wharf facility is expected to be completed by mid-2017. By then, Westports would have taken delivery of additional Ship-To-Shore Cranes and also Rubber Tyred Gantry Cranes. Together with the added wharf facility, these additional Terminal Operating Equipment would enhance Westports’ total container handling capacity to 12.5 million TEUs per annum. Westports is truly a Malaysian Port with 4,600* workforce in the company all being Malaysian, and many are from the island where Westports Malaysia is situated, Pulau Indah.
