Penang maritime logistics in jeopardy

Based on the present scenario, Government is suggested to emphasize more on an effective public transport system for Penang, rather than going ahead for a sea-tunnel at the north channel (the only sea route for vessels). CORRECTION: Based on the water draft limitation at the channel, the terminal operator is able to handle NOT more than a 4,000 TEUs vessel (instead of 400 TEUs, which is wrongly stated due to typo error by the printer). It’s NOT a norm, but the largest containerized vessel in the world is able to carry 18,000 TEUs now!

“SPAD, setting up its office in Penang”: For which, LogM President CKL commented that might be an “convenience” to some people, but it would NOT be seen bringing any significant or favourable factor to the general public, including the Logistics & Supply Chain sector(s). Notwithstanding, unless, they’re able to work hand-in-hand with the Penang State Government to finding ways and means to reduce traffic congestion.
