Penang Port Commission joins IAPH

The Penang Port Commission (PPC) has joined the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) as a regular member.

Penang Port is an international port strategically located in the Straits of Malacca on the Northwest Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

Penang Port offers a variety of facilities and modern equipment to handle containers, liquid bulk cargo, dry bulk cargo, and general cargo.

The PPC, established on 1 January 1956, is a Statutory Body under the purview of the Ministry of Transport.

After the amendments of the related Acts, the PPC currently acts as a Port Authority and a Regulatory Authority for port privatisation, a Port Resource Centre for the northern region, and the Administrator of the Free Commercial Zone (FCZ).
