Singapore’s strategic location at the heart of Southeast Asia; a nexus of major shipping routes, has made it an important logistic hub in the global supply chain. With a total of 53 berths and designed annual capacity of 50 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), Singapore is the world’s largest container transhipment hub. In 2021, Singapore handled 37.2 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containers. With its unrivalled connectivity, small feeder vessels bring containers to the Port of Singapore for loading onto larger vessels which then carry the shipments to their destination. About 85 per cent of the containers that arrive in Singapore are transhipped to another port of call.
We are delighted to confirm that IFCBA Conference Delegates will be touring the port on December 13, 2022 from 3:00-5:00 pm and seeing first hand this important logistics hub. We hope you are as excited as we are to have the opportunity to see this marvel of logistics in action.
As a reminder, the IFCBA conference hotel, the beautiful J.W. Marriott Hotel South Beach, Singapore has a deadline to reserve your room at the conference rate. The deadline is this Monday, November 14. Please use this link to book now:
