The port of Celukan Bawang is a cargo port which today’s is dedicated to the import of cement. The port receives about 140 cargo vessels with cement every year. The cement is arriving either in bulk being disembarked on a special berth situated on the Eastern part of the harbour, away from the other cargo berths, either in bag being disembarked on one of the three existing cargo piers.
The coast around the port of Celukan Bawang is sloppy and rocky, and the sea bed is made up of stony sand.
The anchorage area as well as the harbour are protected from dominant winds. This port is continuously operated all year long. The area of anchorage is large enough and the port's hinterland is prospective to be developed in the future. The big size vessels anchor close to the entrance channel with 50 to 60 meters water depth.
For the moment there is no pontoon in place permitting the operations of disembarkation from cruise ships at anchor but Pelindo III which manages the harbour has the cruise operations expertise and is prepared to instal tendering facilities when required.
