The Port of Singapore

The Port of Singapore is a vital part of the country’s economy and key piece of physical  infrastructure. The port is currently ranked second busiest by cargo tonnage, behind  Shanghai, with approximately 1,000 ships in port at any given time. It directly connects  with 600 other global ports in 120 countries, making it a vital part of the world’s logistics system. An estimated 130,000 vessels stop in Singapore each year, highlighting  its role as a transshipment point – which could pose significant problems if the port ever  faced a major disruption.

Rising tensions rising between the West and China, make understanding the role of the  Port of Singapore important for business leaders who may wish to diversify logistics  routes prior to or during a conflict in Southeast Asia.
