Malaysia’s First AI-Based Container Port In Port Dickson


Malaysia is embarking on a groundbreaking venture with its first artificial intelligence-based container port set to be established in the city of Port Dickson, located in the Negri Sembilan state. This MYR2 billion project is a collaboration between the state and Malaysian property developer Tanco Holdings, showcasing a pioneering approach to port development.

Key Features of the Port

  1. Strategic Location: Situated on a 192-ha existing golf course, the port boasts deep waters exceeding 21m and is positioned 1.8km from the shoreline, making it ideal for accommodating the largest container ships globally.
  2. Technological Integration: Embracing cutting-edge technologies, the port will facilitate automated container handling, predictive maintenance, and advanced security measures, promising efficiency and operational excellence.
  3. Expansion Plans: The government has allocated 33.6ha of the seabed off Dickson Bay for terminal construction, underlining its commitment to fostering growth and development in the region.

Government Endorsement and Outlook

Malaysia’s Transport Minister Anthony Loke expressed support for the project, emphasizing its complementary nature with existing ports and the government’s openness to private initiatives aimed at enhancing infrastructure. The port’s anticipated container handling capacity will be determined upon completion of pertinent studies, signifying a forward-looking approach to meeting future demands and driving economic progress.
