Westports tariff rise put off till 1 October
Shippers will have an extra month of reprieve before new tariffs kick in at Port Klang, with top operator Westports Holdings announcing that the first phase of its tariff revisions will take effect on 1 October instead of 1 September, as previously announced.

Westports said in a stock market announcement that it received a letter notifying about the date changes from Port Klang Authority, the regulatory body for the port. "All other details of the (previous) announcement remain unchanged," Westports said.

The revised tariff will increase charges such as container terminal handling charges for import, export, transhipment, shifting and re-stow, storage charge for container and handling charge for heavy lift or uncontainerised cargo by approximately 15% Westports had said.
