PSA container throughput breakdown Singapore 2018

In 2018, the volume of PSA Singapore's container throughput amounted to around 36.3 million shipping containers (TEU), indicating that more than a third of PSA's handled containers go through Singapore.

PSA International

PSA International is a Singapore-headquartered port operator that manages several major ports worldwide. The group handled about 85.2 million TEUs in 2019. Currently, PSA International has 1,800 cranes in operation, about 38 thousand employees and a daily movement of about 230 thousand containers. As a result, it has generated a revenue of about four billion Singapore dollars in 2018, and is, based on the throughput, the largest marine terminal operator in the world.

Singaporean port

Singapore lies on the Strait of Malacca and is therefore geographically positioned for maritime trade. The government started supporting the port early on, and the port has had a major impact on the country's economic situation ever since. Even though PSA International has undergone some extent of liberalization, the company is still owned by Temasek, a holding company owned by the government. This company aims to support businesses with good growth prospects to ensure Singapore’s economic development.
