PSA Corporation (PSA) has developed and launched more than 50 Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to enable digital transformation and enhance digital integration within the haulage industry in Singapore.
his is a significant push for the local haulier community towards information sharing and the adoption of new technologies to streamline their operations and processes.

With these APIs, the hauliers’ existing in-house systems can now be digitally connected with PSA’s Portnet, streamlining and automating their work processes including port documentation. Portnet is a port community solution that provides real-time and detailed information on all port, shipping, and logistics processes.
PSA’s efforts to integrate systems via APIs will encourage its logistics and haulage partners to innovate their business processes and at the same time, provides the sharing of real-time information for enhanced planning and decision-making.
PSA has also been working closely with key stakeholders, including the Trade Associations and Chambers to build digital capabilities to strengthen the overall business ecosystem. These digital initiatives aim to help companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), move in tandem with the emerging needs of the digital economy and a postpandemic future. More than 100,000 containers were handled via APIs launched since 2021, with favourable feedback from hauliers who have come onboard.
Ms Seow Hwee, PSA’s Head of Cargo Solutions Business, Southeast Asia, said:
Agility is a prerequisite in meeting today’s complex and dynamic nature of logistics management, and PSA recognises the industry’s need for data and information sharing to improve resilience in supply chain systems
