Port Klang

We would like to inform you that with immediate effect Hapag-Lloyd will implement new procedures of importing plastic scrap (HS Code 39.15) into Malaysia to comply with recent government regulation from the Port Klang Authority (PKA).

  • Shipment without valid import permits are not allowed to discharge from the vessel at destination – Malaysia Terminals.
  • Shipper is requested to furnish below documents to the origin ‘s booking office:
    – Import Permit of the consignee
    – LOI from the shipper (Appendix 1)

Upon confirmation from the destination office, the cargo will be allowed to load at origin. This confirmation by destination is to assist shippers but does not ensure the cargo will be allowed to discharge as it is subject to PKA approval prior to vessel arrival at Malaysia ports.
