Cargo Handling Equipment

Historical Brief

Prior to 1961, all the ports in Sarawak were administered jointly by Government Agencies, namely the Marine Department, responsible for movements of ships into and out of ports; the Royal Customs and Excise Department, responsible for custody of cargoes in the shed; and the Public Works Department, responsible for construction and maintenance of wharves, sheds and other facilities.

While this administrative set-up served its objective, it was nonetheless felt that much was still left to be desired to achieve greater co-ordination of port activities. A move in this direction was made with the enactment of the Port Authorities Ordinance in 1961.

Formation of Rajang Port Authority

The Authority came into legal existence on 1st November 1970 but commenced its operation on 17th May 1971. Its establishment represented a positive step towards providing more efficient port services.

With better organisation and planning, it achieves faster development through better wharf facilities, more economical and up-to-date modes of handling cargoes, and greater convenience in importing and exporting goods.
