Johor Port reported 6% growth
In the course of 2020, container throughput at Johor Port in Malaysia surpassed the mark of one million teu. Johor Port CEO Derick Basir said that neither Covid-19 nor the shortage of empty containers in Malaysia and other parts of the region had an effect on the port’s positive performance.
“Johor Port recorded a year-on-year growth of 6%, and with the re-opening of industries on 4 May 2020, the export volume regained its momentum as manufacturers stepped up their production to meet the pre-movement control order,” he said in a press release. Johor Port also became a port of call for four new services in 2020, mainly to the Intra-Asia region. (cd)
