PORT KLANG: Port Klang Authority (PKA) chairman, Datuk Teh Kim Poo has finally resolved the issue involving prime-mover drivers and depot operators after a three-day stand-off.
In a statement issued to the media, Teh said although operations and management of the depots do not come under the purview of PKA but as they are all located outside the vicinity of the designated port area, it takes a serious view of the interruption to port operations and cargo delivery system caused by the protests.
"After two days of negotiations with all the parties involved, we are pleased to announce that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been reached between the Association of Malaysian Hauliers (AMH) and the Container Depot Operators which will resolve the grouses faced by the drivers.
"The terms and conditions of the MoU include the depot operators agree to give credit terms to hauliers and the details of the agreement will be dealt with individual hauliers and that they shall take all steps with AMH to achieve the target of maximum one hour to service each individual prime-mover drivers," he said.
