| Logistics & Supply Chain Management

PSA Corporation Limited (PSA) with the support of the Economic Development Board (EDB) and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has inaugurated the PSA Living Lab, a living laboratory in Singapore for the port and logistics industry, with close to S$100 million committed to the initiative over the next three years.

Comprising two operational berths at Pasir Panjang Terminal, the PSA Living Lab will enable start-ups and technology solution providers to collaborate with PSA to develop ideas and test-bed integrated systems in an unparalleled live port environment at PSA Singapore Terminals – one of the world’s busiest hubs for container movement.

The PSA Living Lab is an integral part of PSA’s on-going program to develop innovative and cutting-edge technology solutions for its existing terminal operations in Singapore, as well as the future Tuas Terminal. One key project is the Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) system, which will ramp up operations to a total fleet of 30 vehicles in 2017. Operationally-ready solutions have the potential to be deployed at terminals of the PSA Group worldwide.

The PSA Living Lab will also complement the recently-launched PSA unboXed Incubator program, which seeks innovative solutions from start-ups to revolutionise container terminal operations, streamline global supply chain logistics, and enhance the efficiency of international trade with better visibility and security.
