Group CEO

“We are now entering a new phase in the pandemic as many countries begin to re-open their social and economic activities.

This next phase could be termed as a “reboot” – albeit a tentative one – given that we do not thoroughly understand the magnitude of disruption faced by global economic systems during the lockdown. The focus has been on saving lives, and rightly so. But for the sake of our livelihoods, we have to move forward cautiously.

I want to give you an update on what we will be doing to stay ahead of the curve and my thoughts about the next few months, summarised with these 4 ‘R’s.”

Measures taken to curtail infections

PSA was formerly the Port of Singapore Authority, a statutory board regulating, developing, operating and promoting the Port of Singapore. In 1996, PSA’s regulatory functions were transferred to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. PSA Corporation Limited (the corporate successor to the Port of Singapore Authority) was subsequently established in 1997 to manage and commercially operate container terminals and related businesses in the Port of Singapore. In December 2003, PSA International Pte Ltd became the investment holding company for PSA’s group of businesses worldwide.

Safety Measures to Follow

PSA’s operating entities are organised into five business regions – Southeast Asia, Middle East South Asia, Northeast Asia, Europe and Mediterranean, Americas – each headed by a regional chief executive officer responsible for its business performance. The regional CEOs report to the group CEO who is assisted by a small team of senior executives at the Corporate Centre.

In the 1970s, PSA took the pioneering step of building a container port in Singapore, and handled its first container ship in 1972. Container volumes grew rapidly. In 1982, the number of containers handled crossed the one-million-TEU mark.

By 1990, container volumes handled by PSA Singapore Terminals grew to 5 million TEUs making Singapore the world’s largest container port.

PSA took the first step in becoming a global terminal operator in 1996 when it embarked on its first overseas venture in Dalian, China. Today, PSA is a world leading ports and terminals group.
