The Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) in Malaysia saw volume grow 16 percent in the first half of 2011.

The port handled 3.7 million 20-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in the first six months of the year, up 16 percent from the same period in 2010, reports news service Seatrade Asia.

A PTP executive said they expect to handle about 7.5 million TEUs of containers this year, a 16 percent increase from last year.

The port also announced a plan to switch to paperless billing from September 1 to reduce the amount of paper the terminal uses, saying the move was timely given the growth in volume.

The port has been generating somewhere around 4,000 invoices, or about 9,000 sheets of paper every month, Seatrade Asia reported, quoting a PTP spokesman. The paperless billing will save more than 100,000 sheets of paper per year, it added.
