As a caring organisation, Tanjung Bruas Port remains committed to being socially responsible in the long run and will continue to contribute and help more students in the future.

Tanjung Bruas Port Sdn Bhd (“Tanjung Bruas Port”) is strategically located along one of the world’s busiest trade route at the centre and narrowest point of the Straits of Malacca. Situated within a large developed hinterland drawn from Melaka, Negeri Sembilan and Northern Johor, the Port is surrounded by more than 500 companies operating within Melaka’s Industrial Parks featuring electrical and electronic companies, fabricated metal product plants, food and furniture manufacturers. This enables the Port to be developed as a major Gateway to handle both Containers and Conventional cargoes to serve the growing industries in Melaka and the Central Region of Peninsular Malaysia as well as its neighbouring countries. The strategic location of the Port also provides an opportunity to tap on marine services such as ship husbandry, ship supplies, bunkering services and ship-to-ship transfers.

The Port was constructed in late 1970 and commenced operation in early 1980 to provide port facilities and services to the local business communities and to handle the exportation of hinterland goods as well as the importation of raw materials. The Port was originally developed on 18.6 acres of land area supported by a T-shaped jetty with two Berths facility. The Outer Berth is 225 metres in length with alongside depth of 10.5 metres and is able to accommodate vessels with LOA of up to 180 metres while the Inner Berth is 120 metres in length with alongside depth of 8.8 metres while the jetty is connected to the shore by a 450-metres trestle/bridge. The Port itself is situated very close to the 12 metres depth line, which is the draft required by most of the modern vessels.

With its strategic location along the second busiest sea trading Straits in the world and the surrounding developed hinterland, the Tanjung Bruas Port has the potential to be developed as a hub for ‘Sea-Air cargoes’. A Comprehensive Development Plan has been established to improve on the current Port facilities via investment in modern equipment to enhance the operations of the Port and supported with strategic marketing and business development initiatives.
