Singapore’s international shipping port has once again set its own record!

According to data from the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore, on December 25, 2023, the annual tonnage of ships arriving at Singapore Port (a measure of ship flow) reached slightly over 3 billion total tons, an increase of 6% from the total tonnage of 2.83 billion in 2022. This is the second time that Singapore’s port has set its own record since reaching a total tonnage of 1 billion in 2004 and 2 billion in 2011.SingaporeIt is reported that this record was set on December 25, 2023, when an 8628 TEU, 98799 GT Singapore flag container ship ONE Olympius arrived at the Pasir Panjang port.The annual tonnage of ships arriving at Singapore Port in 2023 is expected to increase from 2.83 billion GT in 2022 to 3 billion GT in 2023.This record was marked at an event organized by the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore, attended by Acting Minister of Transport Chee Hong Tat. He said that the most important success factor for Singapore’s port to achieve this milestone is the strong tripartite cooperation between unions, industry, and government. He pointed out that while others can try to replicate the hardware, infrastructure, technology, and operating systems of ports, “many people find it difficult to replicate our trusted third-party ecosystem in Singapore.” This is one of the key factors that keep us competitive and take the Singapore Maritime Authority to a higher levelMPA CEO Teo Eng Dih said, “Singapore continues to be the preferred port of call, and we feel humble. We will continue to work with all three stakeholders to improve port efficiency and safety. On October 1st of this year, a” Just In Time (JIT) Plan and Coordination Platform “was launched for ships docking at PSA docks and Jurong Port.”. The just in time platform will help improve ship turnover and optimize port docking, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions from ships. Starting from January 2024, it will gradually expand to all ships docking in Singapore
