Automation and innovation are the new buzzwords in today’s logistics industry, as it works towards technology-driven operations to tackle the issue of manpower shortage and cope with future demands.
Expected to be the largest container terminal in the world, the future Tuas Mega Port will be able to handle 65 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) once fully completed. It will also be equipped with state-of-the-art technology such as automated crane yards, drones, data analytics and driverless trucks for port transport to improve the port’s productivity.
Located 1km away from the Tuas Mega Port, PLG is strengthening its capabilities to support the port’s operations with plans to incorporate suitable automation technologies to increase the efficiency of its operations. We invited Dr Song Tiancheng, the Deputy Director of the Engineering division at the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore for a discussion and sharing session with our team to explore possible innovation and automation for the Future Mega Port City at PLG Building.
