MALAYSIA's Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) has again broken the record for the third time after the world's biggest ship, the 23,000-TEU MSC Gulsun departed with having taken on 19,574 TEU.

With Navis N4 terminal operating system in operation, PTP has become the first port in the world to set back-to-back records for container vessel utilisation, reported the American Journal of Transportation.



To meet the future expected volume growth, PTP has upgraded its TOS to Navis N4 which provides improved performance and scalability.



'I have personally been involved in many 'go lives', but never one of this size and scale and also never one that has gone so well in so many areas, including change management, adoption of new processes and frontline technology,' said PTP chief operations officer Joe Schofield.



'Thanks to our great foundation and Navis' second to none commitment to this project's success, we have done what many thought was impossible,' he said.



PTP, a joint venture between Maersk's MMC Group and APM Terminals, is Malaysia's most advanced container terminal, with capacity to handle up to 12.5 million TEU annually. PTP is situated on the eastern side of the mouth of the Pulai River in South-West Johor, mere 45 minutes from the confluence of the world's busiest shipping lanes.
