SINGAPORE: May 10, 2019. PSA International (PSA) and SATS are to provide shippers and logistics companies greater supply chain efficiency by boosting Singapore as a key multimodal hub.

PSA is a port group with operations in Singapore and Antwerp plus a network of 50 coastal, rail and inland terminals in 17 countries. SATS is a provider of gateway services in over 60 locations and 13 countries in Asia and the Middle East.

PSAPSA and SATS say their recently-signed MoU will lead to collaboration on a wide range of cross-industry initiatives in the perishables, electronics, and e-commerce sectors.

From “Yard-to-Port” data linkages and network extensions between both companies to enhanced track-and-trace capabilities, the partnership is expected to produce data transparency and ease of shipment within different FTZs.

The two companies will also integrate their IT systems to build data analytics capabilities. COSYS+, a cargo terminal handling and management system operated by SATS, will be linked with CALISTATM, the global supply chain platform developed by PSA’s subsidiary GeTS Asia, to provide real-time updates and greater visibility for shipments transported via multimodal channels.

“When SATS became the world’s first ground handler to provide multimodal meat transshipment services between New Zealand and the EU, we demonstrated that multimodal connectivity can attract higher trade flows. Today, we hope our cross-industry initiatives with PSA will now enable the whole industry to market efficient multimodal solutions globally, through Singapore.” said Alex Hungate, SATS president and CEO.

PSA International group CEO Tan Chong Meng added: “Shippers are increasingly seeking innovative multimodal solutions for their cargo to reach their preferred markets competitively. This partnership with SATS will enhance Singapore’s ability to offer unique air-sea multimodal connectivity to fulfill these demands.”
