Transhipment containers were the biggest contributor to Northport’s growth last year
Fresh from completing the upgrading works on Wharf 8 in August, MMC Corporation Bhd’s port operator Northport (Malaysia) Bhd is now looking to expand its capacity further.

Northport CEO Datuk Azman Shah Mohd Yusof tells FocusM the port operator is currently scouting for a suitable site to add more capacity.
 
This development comes amid upcoming capacity expansion by Westports Holdings Bhd and the planned multi-billion ringgit new port city in Carey Island in Selangor.
 
Westports in August received an approval-in-principle from the government to expand its container terminal facilities from CT10 to CT19, from the current CT1 to CT9 development. The first phase will take place from 2019 to 2024.
