Port Technology International selects the 5 top ports in Southeast Asia

LONDON's Port Technology International (PTI) have surveyed the ports of Southeast Asia and have come up with the top five.

Tops by far is the Port of Singapore, the biggest and busiest port in Southeast Asia and the second in the world after Shanghai, and the only port in the region among the world's top 10.



In 2019 it carried 37.2 million TEU, an increase of 1.6 per cent on 2018. The Maritime Port Authority (MPA) is currently in the process of building the Tuas Port, which will be the biggest port in the world with a capacity of 60 million TEU once it is completed in 2040.



Next comes Port Klang, across the Malacca Strait in Malaysia. Port Klang is the second biggest port in the Southeast region and is just outside the world's top 10, with its traffic reaching 12.3 million TEU in 2018.



In May 2018 Westport, one of three major terminal operators at Port Klang, announced it had started buying land as part of its expansion plans, which will see development of four of its terminals.



Next comes Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia, the third biggest port in Southeast Asia and one of the 20 biggest in the world, with annual traffic of 12 million TEU.



It is Asia's most technologically advanced port and has broken the vessel utilisation record three times in a row, the most recent being in July 2019 when the 23,756-TEU MSC Gulsun, the biggest containership ever, called.



In October 2019 it announced plans to double its capacity in a move that will see it carry more than 30 million TEU by 2030.



Next comes the Port of Laem Chabang, Thailand, the fourth biggest port in Southeast Asia and is just outside the world's top 20 in the world with an annual volume of eight million TEU, with Hutchison's Terminal D being the next game in town, which will increase by 3.5 million TEU.



Finally, the Port of Tanjung Priok, also known as the Port of Jakarta, is the fifth biggest port in Southeast Asia and just outside the world's top 20, with an annual traffic of 7.6 million TEU and as such the busiest and most advanced port in Indonesia.
