2018 | Quarter 3

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to The Hub. In this issue, we have covered 45 highlights consisting of operational updates, accomplishments, recognitions and corporate events that took place within the Group in the third quarter of 2018.

We started with an exciting news, when Captain Cheng Sung Fong of Northport and Captain Roslan Othman of Penang Port were awarded the Maritime Pilot Stalwart Award 2018, during the Malaysia World Maritime Week 2018. The Maritime Pilot Stalwart Award recognises outstanding professionalism, commitment in safety, and protection of life and property, among other criteria.

The winning streak continued with Malakoff being awarded the Risk Management Team of the Year Award during the Malaysian Association of Risk and Insurance Management Conference 2018.

MMC Group celebrated two more wins when both Penang Port and Northport, were each awarded the OSH Gold Class Award, during the 36th Occupational Safety and Health Awards. The awards ceremony was organised by the Malaysian Society for Occupational Safety & Health, which recognised Penang Port and Northport as the best from a total of 176 companies, after thorough auditing by a panel of independent bodies.

The win did not end there, as Port of Tanjung Pelepas set a world record when it became the first port in the world to depart a vessel with a final load over 19,000 TEUs on the Mumbai Maersk.  Senai International Airport too, marked another milestone of its own when the company successfully handled a total of 300,620 passengers - the highest number of passengers handled in a single month since its inception in 1974.

The achievements are not limited only to operational excellence, but also our effort in Corporate Social Responsibility as evidenced by back to back community development, education and environmental initiatives that were carried out within the Group.

There are many more events and news in store for you in this latest edition of The Hub which we hope you will find it informative.  Do drop us an email at to share your feedback and suggestions as we would love to hear your thoughts.

Thank you and best wishes,
