‘Nucleus of SG’s maritime supply chain’ Tuas Port opens
Its first three berths are now operational.
Tuas Port officially opened on 1 September with three berths operational, the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA) announced. Working at the port are 500 staff members.
The three berths are part of the port’s first phase of development. The mega port is being developed in four phases and is expected to be fully operational in 2040.
Once completed, Tuas Port will become the world’s largest fully automated container terminal in a single location, with an annual handling capacity of 65 million TEUs.
Dubbed as the nucleus of Singapore’s maritime and logistics value chain, PSA said Tuas Port will offer its customers a “comprehensive suite of value-added port services and innovative cargo solutions by leveraging technology and automation.”
“Tuas Port is where we can help realise the immense potential of Singapore as a trade hub for the world, and where our people’s passion for excellence meets a higher purpose. We will live up to this responsibility and continue to span new frontiers to achieve sustainable business success,” said PSA International’s Group Chairman, Peter Voser.
