PRAI BULK CARGO TERMINAL
Penang Port ‘s conventional cargo facilities are spearheaded by the Prai Bulk Cargo Terminal (PBCT) that handles a multitude of dry bulk cargo such as grains, soybeans and raw sugar as well as non-edible liquid bulk cargo.
In addition, PBCT is thoroughly equipped to handle dangerous cargo that includes liquid-based products such as Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM). This type of bulk cargo handling must adhere to international standard safety measures and provide services such as security and fire protection.
Conventional cargo handling efficiency has been improved with the application of a computerised cargo and marine system (PELPIN) catering for berth planning, equipment scheduling, go down management, and billing functions. These drives have been instrumental in the ISO9001:2000 certification awarded to Penang Port ‘s conventional cargo operations.
