PSA and SATS will work together on a various cross-industry initiatives, especially in the perishables, electronics, and e-commerce spaces. From 'Yard-to-Port' data linkages and network extensions between both companies, to improved track-and-trace capabilities, the partnership aspires to enable data transparency and ease of shipment movement within different free-trade zones (FTZs).

SATS and PSA will also enter their systems to aid regulatory compliance and build data analytics capabilities. COSYS+ is a cargo terminal handling and management system operated by SATS, which will be linked with CALISTA, a supply chain platform developed by PSA’s subsidiary GeTS Asia Pte Ltd, to provide real-time updates and better visibility for shipments transported through multimodal channels.

Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO, PSA International, stated:

Shippers are increasingly seeking innovative multimodal solutions for their cargo to reach their preferred markets competitively. This partnership with SATS will enhance Singapore’s ability to offer unique air-sea multimodal connectivity to fulfil these demands
