Ministry Identifies Five Key Areas To Enhance PPSB's Productivity
News From : DagangHalal.com (5/7/2010)

PENANG, May 6 (Bernama) -- The Ministry of Transport has identified five key areas to enhance productivity of the Penang Port Sdn Bhd (PPSB) and compete globally.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said PPSB should not rest on it's laurels after being ranked 64th in the international port ranking, but instead improve their services to achieve their target of handling one million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) this year.

"We have identified five areas to help the port improve and become more competitive among Malaysian ports," he told reporters after a dialogue session with port users here Thursday.

He said for a start, the port must improve on its productivity especially on its work force and equipment for port activities.

"Secondly, coordination among various agencies with the port need to be enhanced and third, the sea dredging to serve mother vessels calling at the port," he said.

He added that the fourth would be rebranding of the port to allow them to compete internationally while the fifth area will be to focus on Port-Rail-Link to boost business.
