Premier Global Hub Port

Singapore is a premier global hub port, connected to 600 ports in over 120 countries, giving users reliable, value-added and cost-efficient marine services and facilities.

Sitting at the centre of a web of trade routes and connected to 600 ports in over 120 countries, Singapore offers shipping companies seamless global trade connectivity.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) works closely with both port operators and shipping companies to regulate and develop the port into a global hub, offering a one-stop-shop for the global maritime community.

According to the World Shipping Council, Singapore is the world’s second busiest container port in terms of container throughput handled.

Singapore is also the top refuelling port for ships.

Oil tankers and cargo ships are massive and need space to safely manoeuvre and keep a safe distance from one another.

At the Pasir Panjang container terminal, super post-Panamax quay cranes have been deployed to service some of the world’s biggest vessels, such as the Emma Maersk. This series of dynamic quay cranes are the first of their kind in the region.

Besides offering reliable and efficient cargo handling, Singapore is also one of the top bunkering ports in the world, lifting more than 40 million tonnes of bunkers annually. A wide range of essential marine services are also available, including pilotage, towage, fresh water supply, crew changes, ship supplies and slop disposal.

More than just a container transshipment hub, Singapore is also the world’s third-largest petrochemical refiner and operates the most technically advanced and efficient shipbuilding and ship-repair facilities in Southeast Asia. Currently, it holds about 70% of the world's jack-up rig-building market and over 65% of the global floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) conversion market.

Singapore is one of the world’s premier hub ports, offering a breadth and range of maritime services that few can match.
