THE PORT of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) has been nominated for the Asia's Best Seaport Terminal Operator award together with two other Asian ports.
PTP was nominated in the category with the Port of Hong Kong and the Port of Singapore by Cargonews Asia/Logistics Asia/Cargonews China, a widely read Hong Kong-based fortnightly transportation and logistics trade publication that hands out the prestigious Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards.
PTP was also nominated in the Asia's Best Container Terminal Operator category, alongside Hong Kong's Modern Terminals Ltd and Singapore's PSA Corp.
The awards honour winning organisations for demonstrating leadership and consistency in service quality, continuous innovation, customer relationship management, reliability and strong company mission.
According to PTP chief executive officer Mohd Sidik Osman, the nomination is testament to the excellent relationship and teamwork of the PTP management and workers who have been inspired to turn PTP into an efficient world-class port.
“We feel humbled. The nomination itself is a proud achievement as the award is prestigious,” he said.
Another Malaysian port, Port Klang's Westport, will compete in the Asia's Best Emerging Container Operator category with China's Guangzhou Container Terminal and Shekou Container Terminal and Singapore's Jurong Port.
Winners of the Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards 2003 will be announced at a black-tie presentation ceremony at The Fullerton Singapore on March 19.
