Abstract

Inland ports in Malaysia play a significant role in the freight transport system providing access for manufacturers and producers in the hinterland to seaports acting as gateways to the nation’s trade. The current inland ports in services include Padang Besar, Ipoh, Nilai, Segamat and Tebedu.The existence of inland ports will facilitate more movements of containers to major seaports (i.e., Port Klang, Penang Port and Port of Tanjung Pelepas) and goods across the borders (Tebedu). These features will make an existence of an inland port in the northern region of peninsular Malaysia to be potentially holding a strong foothold for successful intermodal transportation hub in the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER).For this purpose, this paper had collected various experiences of developing inland ports, reviewed their facilities and functions, and thus listed their critical success factors. Based on these reviews, it has been found out that the critical success factors of an inland port are to provide rail links from the main line to the inland port, provide an appropriate institutional framework for supporting inland port activities, cost, multimodal, geographical locations and hinterland, demand management, infrastructure development, technological and innovations and establishing incentives to encourage the industries to utilize the inland port. The findings also suggest that inland port will play a more strategic and creative role in managing the demands and making the inland port as an important hub with the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative.
