PSA Singapore, and Pacific International Lines (PIL) have successfully completed their first trial of low-carbon green shipments, in a joint effort to build a more sustainable end-to-end supply chain ecosystem. This pilot is part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between both partners in October last year to collaborate on green solutions to decarbonise supply chains.

The trial involved warehouse-to-warehouse cargo flow from Singapore to Chongqing via the International Land-Sea Trade Corridor. The containers were transported via PIL’s vessel Kota Ratna through PSA’s coastal terminal and rail nodes in Singapore, Qinzhou and Chongqing.

Green levers utilised in this pilot included the use of biofuel on PIL’s vessel, as well as landside supply chain optimisation by PSA. The biofuel deployed was a blend of used cooking oil containing very low sulphur fuel oil, which abated about 100 tonnes of carbon.

Managing Director, Container Division, PSA Corporation, Philbert Chua said, “The successful completion of this green pilot project with PIL is an important step forward for the maritime and supply chain sector. Combating climate change is one of our urgent priorities and PSA is committed to work with like-minded partners to put these words into action. This concerted teamwork illustrates a step-by-step measurable approach to further decarbonise supply chains and has unlocked opportunities for accelerated action to achieve our net zero goal.”
