Tebedu Inland Port
Tebedu Inland Port (TIP) was an initiative by the Sarawak Government to regulate and facilitate the flow of goods at the West Kalimantan-Sarawak border. Located near the town of Tebedu, Serian District, TIP is about 1 km from the West Kalimantan-Sarawak border. From TIP, it is approximately 85 km to Kuching, the capital of Sarawak and about 370 km to Pontianak, the capital of West Kalimantan.
Certainty of Doing Business
With the establishment of the Tebedu Inland Port (TIP), the Sarawak Government aims to provide certainty of doing business at the border by regulating the bilateral trade at the border. With a certainty of doing business, the business community benefit greatly and can capitalize more on the opportunities to further expand their businesses.
Catalyst of Accelerated Development
With the rich natural resources and abundant human capital in the vicinity, the potentials for development are ample at the border. TIP is projected to act as a catalyst for accelerated development in the interior of Borneo.
Gateway to International Market
The only inland port in Sarawak, TIP is located next to the Tebedu Industrial Estate which caters to light industries. The Tebedu Industrial Estate complements and supports the Sarawak Corridor of Renewal Energy (SCORE). From TIP, manufacturers in the Tebedu Industrial Estate may access other domestic ports of Sarawak and the international markets via the Senari Container Terminal near Kuching. TIP is served by a good road system to the Senari Container Terminal which has connectivity to regional hubs as well as feeder connection to Port Klang and Singapore. TIP officially started its operations on 1 May 2011 and is managed by SM Inland Port Sdn Bhd (SMIP). SMIP was appointed by the Sarawak Government to manage and operate TIP in 2004.
