Sitting at the centre of a web of trade routes and connected to 600 ports in over 120 countries, Singapore offers shipping companies seamless global trade connectivity.
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) works closely with both port operators and shipping companies to regulate and develop the port into a global hub, offering a one-stop-shop for the global maritime community.
Singapore is the busiest port in the world in terms of shipping tonnage, with more than 130,000 vessel calls annually. At the Pasir Panjang container terminal, super post-Panamax quay cranes have been deployed to service some of the world’s biggest vessels, such as the Emma Maersk. This series of dynamic quay cranes are the first of their kind in the region.
Besides offering reliable and efficient cargo handling, Singapore is also one of the top bunkering ports in the world, lifting more than 40 million tonnes of bunkers annually. A wide range of essential marine services are also available, including pilotage, towage, fresh water supply, crew changes, ship supplies and slop disposal.
More than just a container transhipment hub, Singapore is also the world’s third-largest petrochemical refiner and operates the most technically advanced and efficient shipbuilding and ship-repair facilities in Southeast Asia. Currently, it holds about 70% of the world’s jack-up rig-building market and over 65% of the global floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) conversion market.
Singapore is one of the world’s premier hub ports, offering a breadth and depth of maritime services that few can match.
