The Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) has once again broken the TEU utilisation record for a Maersk vessel by logging 19,388 TEU on Munich Maersk, surpassing the record 19,344 TEU record set during the visit Murcia Maersk in July 2020.
PTP attributed the record to “various operational improvement initiatives and consistency in productivity”. It also said that it would not have been possible without the “cooperation and joint efforts” of all parties and “continuous effort, dedication and hard work” of its operations team.
It is the latest achievement by PTP, which at the end of July broke its productivity move record. That followed a series of port optimisation records as it received many of the biggest vessels in the world, such as the MSC Gulsun and the HMM Algeciras, currently the largest in the world.
Additionally, in April 2020 it recorded an all-time container terminal move record as it saw a total of 137,256 moves in a week, equivalent of 211,997 TEU.
PTP is one of the fastest growing and most technologically advanced ports in the world. In 2019 it launched plans to more than double its TEU capacity by 2030.,
