The Advanced Transhipment Management (ATM) scheme offers shippers forward hubbing options at PSA ports. ATM is a proven staple of shippers along the petro-chemical corridor between the Middle East and Singapore. With frequent sailings and multiple connections from Singapore, shippers benefit from both faster time to market and wider outreach to global destinations.
Similar to ATM, the Advanced Inventory Management (AIM) scheme offers local shippers forward hubbing options at PSA ports.
Perishables and pharmaceutical products require a reliable and robust end-to-end cold chain. A viable interface between the port and other cold chain nodes involves close collaboration with shippers, logistics service providers, and shipping lines. PSA is committed to working with customers and partners to tailor solutions for sustainable outcomes.
In Singapore, PSA provides a suite of comprehensive refrigerated container (“reefer”) services to ensure that cargo is kept at its optimal temperature and quality is not compromised throughout its stay in the port.
Beyond providing reliable infrastructure, data visibility, and 24/7 reefer management capabilities, PSA also provides value-added services to ensure that each shipper’s cold chain requirements can be met.
Leveraging the combination of its class-leading sea and air hubs, Singapore offers shippers unparalleled sea-air or air-sea intermodal connectivity, providing seamless transfers and alternatives; particularly in the perishables, electronics and e-commerce space.
The intermodal options offer a faster transit time via air and a lower cost via sea, alleviating capacity constraints especially during air freight peak seasons.
As an option for shippers seeking faster transit time, the International Land-Sea Trade Corridor (ILSTC) connects China’s western provinces and Southeast Asia through rail and sea links. This solution reduces cargo transit time along the Singapore-Chongqing route from 22-25 days (if via Yangtze River barge), to 7-10 days.
Building on our global network of ports, PSA is expanding investments to rail depots, extending our outreach beyond seaports into inland areas. Our footprint now includes the China United International Rail Containers (CUIRC) inland container depots in China and Ashcroft Terminal inland port facility in Western Canada.
Situated within the bonded zone of Fuzhou Container Terminal is the Jiangyin Cold Chain Warehouse. The facility is a one-stop multimodal cold chain solution that integrates the bonded port, container berths, and railway. The 5,000sqm cold store has bonded and non-bonded zones to serve both foreign and domestic markets.
With multiple temperature zones, the Jiangyin Cold Chain Warehouse is able to provide storage for a wide range of temperature-sensitive products. To optimise business flow for our partners, it also offers comprehensive supply chain services such as processing and distribution, customs clearance and inspection.
In Singapore, Keppel Distripark (KD) serves as a modern cargo distribution complex located within the Free Trade Zone. Its direct links with our port also enables quick transit of containers between warehouses and vessels. Located at the fringe of the Central Business District, KD is in close proximity with major expressways, with excellent connectivity to the city, airport and major industrial hubs.
Equipped with Container Freight Station (CFS) facilities, KD has 45 warehouse modules of covered storage totalling 110,000sqm. With a height of up to 14.6 metres, the modules allow for a high racking system to cater for different needs.
The following services are also available at KD:
Cargo consolidation, de-consolidation, trans-loading and storage
Cargo sampling, surveying, re-marking and re-packing
Central Distribution Centre (CDC), Regional Distribution Centre (RDC)
Co-loading among Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs)
