PSA Singapore responds to supply chain disruptions with cargo solutions

PSA Singapore responds to supply chain disruptions with cargo solutions
PSA aims to ensure the smooth operations of supply chains

PSA Singapore has launched a series of value-added services to support cargo owners which includes priority discharge, top stowage, express delivery flexi-alerts and fast connection management for containers moving via Singapore.

The company had deployed these additional resources and ramped up its capabilities to increase activity at the Sinagpore port to deal with the current disruptions in global supply chains.

Global e-Trade Services (GeTS) has also worked with PSA Cargo Solutions Southeast Asia (PCSS) to offer free access to CALISTA P!NG for a limited time.

CALISTA P!NG will provide cargo owners with near-realtime visibility of key cargo event milestones via Singapore to facilitate better planning and management of cargo movements.

Seow Hwee, head of cargo solutions, southeast Asia for PSA, said: “The global pandemic has resulted in industry disruptions affecting cargo owners and communities worldwide.

“Closer collaboration and increased cargo movement visibility will go a long way towards keeping supply chains flowing smoothly and safely.”

China Energy Engineering Group Electric Commerce Co., a subsidiary of China Energy Engineering Group Co. (CEEC), benefitted from PCSS’s cargo solutions.

The company’s senior logistics manager, Zhao Zhi Ming, said: “In January 2021, we faced an uncertain delay in supply shipments from northeast Asia for our local projects in Singapore.

“At one point of time, our inventory ran extremely low and operations were on the bring of total stoppage. PSA rendered valuable support during these challenging times working with stakeholders to facilitate priority discharge of the containers holding our supplies.”

PSA also expedited the delivery to CEEC’s construction site, which assure the continuation of the operation and avoided the incurrence of liquidated damages and wasted overheads.
