16 July 2011
Tanjung Manis Integrated Port Sdn Bhd (Tanjung Manis Port) is ready to be a global player in the trading industry with the launching of its new logo into the shipping fraternity and world map.

The group`s chairman Datu Sarudu Hoklai said the entry of the new logo required TMP to comply with international operating, safety and security standards.

To meet the required standards, Hoklai said the port`s management team had put in place several quality management systems to boost its operational efficiency.

"They are Tanjung Manis Port`s Occupational Safety and Health Management System (OSHAS 18001:2007), a national single Window`s compatible ICT system, the International shipping and port facilities security (ISPS) Compliance Code and the 5S Quality Environment Practices (5S), all geared for implementation and certification in 2011," he said.

He was speaking at the launching of the new logo, Tanjung Manis Port`s OSHAS 18001:2007 and the 5S Quality Environment Practices at a leading hotel here on Thursday night.

He pointed out that the quality management system would ensure safe working conditions once the oil, gas and chemical (OGC) jetty began operation on Sept 21, serving as a distribution centre for fuels in the central region.

He also said the quality management system met the high safety standards expected by Senari Synergy, Shell and Petronas.

"We are here to facilitate trade and open alternative gateways for international trade for the central region, making what was not possible a reality through personalised and customised services," he said.

Apart from that, the existing port would be renovated to cater for immediate needs.

"To ensure efficient and safe cargo handling operations, Tanjung Mains Port will take delivery of one 100-tonnes mobile crane and one unit of 65 tonnes mobile harbor crane by December 2011," he said.

On the development of Tanjung Manis, he said the 77,000ha halal hub and various investment incentives from the federal and state government were ideal attractions for foreign direct investments (FDI).

He said more than RM2 billion FDIs had been committed and would fuel more than RM10 billion worth of FDI in 10 to 20 years.

He said intensive export-oriented food processing activities from the halal hub alone would feed huge container throughput for TMP, which would create a demand for a container terminal in Tanjung Manis in the next five to ten years.

"The huge volume of containerised imports created a good trade balance that could sustain calls by mainline operators connecting TMP to its strategic markets worldwide," he said.

Also present at the function were Mukah Resident Saudi Narani, Sarawak Timber Development Corporation general manager Hashim Bojet, TMP executive director Sadiah Tu and Rajang Port Authority general manager Helen Lim.
