Abstract

Normally, every vessel sailing in or out from a port will use special path which is call channel. The channel is provided by the port management. Typically, a channel is a dredged path to a defined depth. Therefore, the channel has a minimum depth of water to ensure the safety of every vessel. The channel is usually maintained by the port management through dredging activities once in three or six months depending on the sedimentation movement in the area. However, there are certain areas the channel does not covered since the natural depths of the area are adequate for vessel safety as well as the channel itself (e.g. Port Klang). Normally, there will be pilotage services for any vessel entering or departing from the anchorages area to the port berth and viceversa.
