Johor Port bags three awards amid COVID-19 challenges

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 13 -- Johor Port Bhd has clinched “Asia’s Most Influential Companies Award” at the Asia Corporate Excellence and Sustainability Awards (ACES) 2021 and bagged the Industry Excellence Award for the Service Sector under Category 4, as well as the Prime Minister Award recently.

Chief executive officer Md Derick Basir said the port has undertaken numerous initiatives to innovate and establish Johor Port as one of the most efficient multi-purpose ports in the region.

“These awards are a testament to our ability to understand and accommodate the market’s needs as well as in delivering high-quality services,” he said in a statement, adding that the Prime Minister Award is the highest accolade at the Ministry of International Trade and Industry’s awards ceremony.

Md Derick said despite the very challenging COVID-19 year for them, Johor Port had continued to operate optimally. There was no disruption to its import, export, and logistics activities, he said.

He said Johor Port is still forecasting a year-on-year overall volume growth of one per cent in 2021.

The port also rolled out its container terminal operational improvement plan which focuses on improving productivity and yard efficiency. This has resulted in better gross moves per hour (GMPH) of 25 cranes versus a GMPH of 22 cranes previously.
