Kuching and Sabah Ports poised to serve BIMP-EAGA hub

16th July, 2012

KUCHING: The Kuching Port Authority (KPA), through its Tebedu Inland Port, which is strategically positioned to serve the western part of Kalimantan, Indonesia, is poised to become the regional distribution hub between West Kalimantan and Sarawak.

KPA chairman Datuk Awang Bemee Pengiran Ali Basah said, in terms of container productivity, the port handled an average of 30 moves per hour – well above the industry average – besides being the first Malaysian port to be accorded the MS ISO 9002 certification on Container Handling Management System.

“Both the port and Sabah Ports are strategically located to serve the eastern part of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines East Asia Growth Area or better known as BIMP-EAGA Region,” he told the visiting 17-member delegation from Sabah Port Sdn Bhd’s Operations Meeting Committee here.

On Friday the delegates, led by Sabah Port’s group managing director/managing director Datuk Dr. Mohd. Fowzi Razi toured KPA’s container operations besides exchanging ideas and experiences pertaining to container operations as well as to enhance further the already established relationship and cooperation between the two premier East Malaysian ports.

Sabah Ports, with its Sepanggar Bay Container Port, is strategically positioned to serve as the transshipment hub for the BIMP-EAGA region, especially between Malaysia and Philippines.

Given that BIMP-EAGA covers an area of 1.6 million square kms and has a combined population of 60 million, Awang Bemee said, the two ports played a pivotal role to facilitate cross border goods and cargo movements.
