Port Kelang (Port code:MYPKG), formerly Port Swettenham, is the leading port of Malaysia, on the Strait of Malacca midway between the major ports of Pinang and Singapore. It consists of port kelang west and port kelang north. It is the port of Kuala Lumpur, the federal capital, 23 miles (37 km) east-northeast, with which it is connected by road and rail. At the mouth of the Sungai (River) Kelang, it is accessible to oceangoing vessels via the Selat Kelang Utara (North Kelang Strait). Sheltered by two long mangrove islands (Kelang and Lumut), its hinterland contains the rich rubber and tin areas of Kuala Lumpur and Seremban.
Developed by the Malayan Railway, the port was named for Sir Frank Swettenham, Selangor’s British resident (representative) after 1882, and was intended to serve west-central Malaya, making the railway independent of Singapore and Penang.
