Though Kuantan Port was traditionally designed to handle general cargo, over the years the port has adapted to the changing shipping trends and cargo packaging from break bulk to unitisation, palletisation and containerisation. Kuantan Port has also developed specialised liquid chemical, mineral oil and palm oil berths.
To facilitate efficient, faster and safer transportation of petrochemical products to and from the petrochemical plants in Gebeng Industrial Estate, to their respective tank farm facilities at the Port and the Liquid Chemical Berths, a common pipe-rack running 9 kilometres long had been constructed.
The port is equipped with three (3) berths to handle palm oil, vegetable oil, other edible oils and bio-diesel shipment.
One (1) mineral oil berth measuring 150 metres in length is available to handle mineral oil at Kuantan Port.
