Subject to regulatory approvals, the joint venture terminal is scheduled to begin operations in the first half of 2019 and operate four mega container berths with a combined annual handling capacity of 4 million TEUs.
Ong Kim Pong, PSA International regional CEO for Southeast Asia, called the collaboration “a win-win and mutually beneficial partnership.”
“Recently, PSA has developed many enhanced products, including data analytics tools to boost port efficiency and initiatives for cargo solutions to address market needs,” he said. “We look forward to working alongside with ONE to grow its value, strengthen its position as a major global player and at the same time enhance the status of the Port of Singapore as a premier global container and cargo orchestration hub.”
“Through this joint venture in Singapore, ONE will be enabled to further enhance its terminal and vessel planning operations in an even closer cooperation with PSA. This will improve our service reliability and benefit our customers through better service levels,” Nixon said.
