Port Klang/Kelang is Malaysia's largest port/principal cargo port and serves the capital city Kuala Lumpur. The city has total area approx 243 km2 (94 mi2) and population around 1,8 million (metro over 7,2 million / Greater Kuala Lumpur). Klang City is among Southeast Asia's fastest-growing metropolis in terms of economy, and Malaysia's economic, cultural and financial center.

Kuala Lumpur City was once home to executive and judicial branches of the federal government, but in early 1999 they were moved to Putrajaya. Here is located Istana Negara - the official residence of Malaysian King. The city is also home to the world's tallest twin buildings - Petronas Twin Towers, an iconic symbol of the country's futuristic development. The towers have tip height of 452 m (1483 ft). Each tower is served by 40 elevators. The project was completed in 1996 at the cost of USD 1,6 billion. The building is owned by KLCC Holdings Sdn Bhd. Below the towers is located the shopping mall Suria KLCC and the Petronas Filharmonik Hall.

Port Klang

Port Klang (Pelabuhan Klang, locode MYPKL) is Malaysia's largest seaport, located approx 6 km (4 mi) southwest of Klang Town, and approx 38 km (24 mi) southwest of Kuala Lumpur City. The port is ranked the world's 12th-busiest containership port, as well as the world's 17th-busiest by annual total cargo tonnage.

Currently, Port Klang Authority (PKA) manages 3 seaports in the area (Northport, Southpoint, Westport). Port's total cargo capacity is 109,7 million tons.

  • Northport comprises multipurpose port facilities and logistics services. A merger of two Malaysian companies (Kelang Container Terminal and Kelang Port Management), Northport operations also cover Southpoint and the Northport Distripark Sdn Bhd (logistics). In January 2016, MMC Corporation took over the ownership of Northport through its subsidiary company MMC Ports.
  • Westport (fka Kelang Multi Terminal) is the passenger (ferry and cruise) port, Port Klang Cruise Centre was inaugurated in December 1995 and has 3 berths, where passenger and naval ships can dock. The cruise terminal was previously managed by Genting Hong Kong/GHK-owned company Star Cruises, then its management took Glenn Marine Group.
  • On March 28, 2014, an interim privatization agreement was signed Port Klang Authority, Northport Bhd (subsidiary of MMC Corporation) and the Malaysian government, which enabled Northport Bhd to continue to manage the port until a new agreement is approved. On March 13, 2018, was signed the privatization agreement between the three parties. Northport Bhd received a 30-year concession extension (until 2048) to operate Northport and Southpoint.

In 2017-2018 (September-June), the liner SuperStar Libra operated 1-3-day short breaks / mini-cruises leaving from 3 homeports - Port Klang, Penang (Malaysia) and Phuket (Thailand). Weekly were offered 2 roundtrips from Malaysia, including 3-night itinerary (Kuala Lumpur-Phuket-Penang) and 4-night itinerary (Kuala Lumpur-Langkawi Island-Phuket-Penang). The new program (also offering fly-cruise packages) allows tourists in Southeast Asia to have more flexibility to choose a departure port. Each of the 3 turnaround ports is a well-connected port city, especially Kuala Lumpur - a major flight hub in Asia.

On November 1, 2018, Westports Klang handled the world's largest boxship - OOCL United Kingdom (max TEU capacity 21413 containers). The ULCV vessel docked at Container Terminal 8 (new wharf completed in 2017) and was handled by nine ship-to-shore gantry cranes. The ship call at Westports was part of scheduled Ocean Alliance service NEU1 (Rotterdam to Xiamen).
