One of Iskandar Malaysia’s greatest assets is its strategic location in the heart of SE Asia adjacent to an established regional hub. It is well positioned to leverage on the fast growing economic powerhouses of India and China as well as the ASEAN region.
Iskandar Malaysia is also located along the busiest sea trade routes in the world. The east-west trade route is currently handling 260 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) and two of the world’s major port basins located along this route are the Pearl River Delta (Hong Kong-Shenzen-Guangzhou) and the Straits of Malacca (Singapore-Tanjung Pelepas-Port Klang).
The Straits of Malacca is the second largest port basin in the world. Hence, Iskandar Malaysia is well-poised to become one of the most important logistics hub in Asia Pacific.
