PSA Marine (Pte) Ltd has launched a new digital solution that provides real-time alerts of delivery information for vessels alongside Singapore terminals, reads an official news release.
With OHS-Sapphire, shipmasters can receive timely updates and gain greater visibility over the delivery of vessel supplies for more efficient activities.
The new solution is available on PSA Marine’s ONEHANDSHAKE platform, which supports connectivity and transparency across maritime stakeholders. Other real-time information such as pilotage services to vessels that call on the port of Singapore are also made available through ONEHANDSHAKE.
“OHS-Sapphire helps our users to optimise resources and improve the welfare of ships’ crew,” said Jimmy Koh, Head of Digital Transformation and Chief Pilot of PSA Marine.
“As a new feature on ONEHANDSHAKE, it is also a step towards sustainability. With better planning, truck drivers can reduce idling time and ship crew can take delivery of goods in a timelier manner.”
Real-time delivery alert solution
PSA said this digital solution will be extended to include supplies to vessels at Singapore’s anchorages by the end of 2022. “We are happy to partner PSA Marine on OHS-Sapphire that will play a significant role in helping us monitor our supply flows more efficiently.” said Dannis Lee, Managing Director of Yang Ming (Singapore) Pte Ltd.
“Real-time updates on the delivery of ship supplies are a game changer for us,” said Capt. Yasuhiro Taguchi, General Manager of NYK Group South Asia Pte Ltd. “For the longest time, we have been dealing with uncertainty and it was not optimal from a resource planning perspective.”
Last September, PSA Corporation Ltd inaugurated Tuas Port, with the first three berths operational at Phase One of the development. Tuas Port has 23 metres of draft alongside, with a total berth length of 26 kilometres.
