COSCO SHIPPING Ports, PSA to Launch Third Singapore Berth
- Dec 01, 2017-
Established in 2003, CPT has served as a hub for container shipping in the Southeast Asia region. The launch of the third berth follows the CSP supplemental agreement signed with PSA on March 18, 2016, which replaced the original two berths in CPT located at Pasir Panjang Terminal 1 with three new and larger berths at Pasir Panjang Terminal 5.
“These agreements are timely as the importance of Singapore as a pivotal regional maritime hub grows in tandem with the advent of mega vessels and new alliances in the shipping industry,” PSA said in a statement.
The first two berths had earlier commenced operations from January 2017, with an annual handling capacity of 2 million TEU.
In order to meet the new requirements from shipping alliances and mega-vessels, as well as maximize the utilization rate of the berths, COSCO SHIPPING Ports decided to commence operations at the third berth on starting from January 2018. The move would increase the handling capacity of CPT to an annual capacity of 3 million TEU.
The parties informed that the new berth, like the first two berths, will be supported by an automated yard, allowing for more efficient berthing arrangements, enabling the terminal to increase productivity and greatly enhance its service capability and quality.
