INFRASTRUCTURE

INLAND PORT

Malaysia’s first inland port, the Ipoh Cargo Terminal (ICT), is strategically located at the heart of Ipoh city. It allows seamless goods movement within and around the Kinta Valley to Port Klang

RAILWAY

The modern Electric Train Service (ETS) runs throughout the Perak state. It takes about 1.5 hours from Ipoh to Penang (Butterworth) and about 2.5 hours from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur (KL Sentral), giving you convenient connectivity to the two major markets and industrial hubs in Malaysia

SEAPORTS

Perak has two seaports, Lumut Maritime Terminal (LMT) and Lekir Bulk Terminal (LBT). The LMT handles both dry and liquid bulk cargos such as coal, limestone, petroleum products and raw fabrication materials. It is also located adjacent to Lumut Port Industrial Park, a major heavy industrial area focusing on oil and gas fabrication and shipbuilding.

The LBT on the other hand is dedicated to handle coal for the Sultan Azlan Shah Power Station. It is currently South East Asia’s largest dry bulk unloading facility

AIRPORT

The Sultan Azlan Shah Airport, Perak’s sole domestic airport, has been in use for the state since the 1980s. Capable of accommodating commercial jet aircrafts such as the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320, the airport offers multiple daily flights to both domestic destinations and Singapore. 

ROAD

Perak’s major cities are well-connected to the rest of Peninsular Malaysia through a vast network of roads and the North-South Expressway (NSE). It takes about 1.5 hours from Ipoh to Penang and about 2 hours from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur

Another expressway, the West Coast Expressway (WCE) is currently under construction and will begin to operate in 2019. It will connect Taiping in Perak to Banting in Selangor, which will greatly improve the connectivity between the two states, particulary towards Port Klang
