Port Klang is situated on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, about 40 km from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur. Its proximity to the greater Klang Valley – the commercial and industrial hub of the country as well as the country’s most populous region ensures that the port plays a pivotal role in the economic development of the country. Based on a Government directive in 1993, Port Klang is currently being developed as the National Load Centre and eventually a hub for the region.

With a number of load centering and hubbing strategies pursued since 1993, the facilities and services in Port Klang are now synonymous to those of World class ports. The port has trade connections with over 120 countries and dealings with more than 500 ports around the world. Its ideal geographical location makes it the first port of call for ships on the eastbound leg and the last port of call on the westbound leg of the Far East-Europe trade route.

2022 Official Charity

The Mission to Seafarers is delighted to be the official IHMA 2022 nominated charity.

Day and night, The Mission to Seafarers is on call for seafarers in 200 ports around the world. With over 90% of world trade carried by sea, providing work to 1.5 million seafarers, we offer much needed practical, emotional and spiritual support through ship-visits, our seafarers’ centres and a range of welfare and emergency support services.

Our mission is to care for the shipping industry’s most important asset: its people.

To find out more about our work and how you can support The Mission, please visit www.missiontoseafarers.org

The IHMA and Informa Connect will be making an official donation to the Mission on behalf of the 2022 Congress.

IHMA 2022 'Draw a Picture' Campaign

IHMA launches, for the second year in a row, a campaign to call attention to the invaluable contribution seafarers make to international trade and the world economy, often at great personal cost to themselves and their families.

Following the success of last year’s campaign in which were received a considerable number of drawings from children all over the world, IHMA is once again calling on the families of its members and of the wider maritime community to help show their support for seafarers by having the young people in their lives draw a picture.

For ideas on what to draw, please see last year’s submissions on the IHMA website at https://www.harbourmaster.org/harbour-master/seafarers.

Drawings can be submitted in electronic form to the following e-mail address: secretary.ihma@harbourmaster.org . Hard copies can be also sent by post to: IHMA, 2 Burgh Mount, Banstead, Surrey, SM7 1ER, United Kingdom.

Drawings received by post will be delivered to seafarers at member ports.
Drawings submitted electronically will be posted on the external IHMA website.
Artists are encouraged to include their names and ages on their work.
The initiative is opened effective immediately until International Day of the Seafarer on 25 June 2022.
