“2022 was a year marked by unpredictability. Even as COVID-19 transitioned to endemic for most major economies and people learned to live under a new normal, businesses and communities continued to face macroeconomic uncertainties arising from geopolitical challenges such as ongoing trade sanctions, the war in Ukraine; record inflation, rising fuel and energy costs, supply chain disruptions and growing climate-related pressures.
Amidst the many challenges, we stayed focused on our strategic priorities and delivered a commendable performance. On behalf of our Board and Management, I would like to thank our customers, partners, and stakeholders for their continued trust in us. My heartfelt appreciation also goes out to our staff, unions, and management globally as their dedication and commitment stood us in good stead as one of the world’s leading port operators and trusted cargo solutions providers.
In recent years, we have been transforming our business and broadening our capabilities to better serve global supply chain stakeholders. Even as we continue building on our core business of ports, we have invested in growing our ability to offer logistics and supply chain solutions beyond the port. 2022 was a very significant year for PSA as we inaugurated the mega Tuas port in Singapore and fully acquired global logistics solutions provider BDP International. These important milestones, amongst others, have extended our capabilities to serve cargo owners as a supply chain orchestrator and bring us closer to the goal of enabling more resilient and sustainable trade.”

“The world experienced another challenging year in 2022. The PSA Group kept an even keel as we navigated the instability and turbulence caused by international conflicts, trade flow disruptions, economic upheavals, and slowing demand growth around the world.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our management, staff, and unions for their resilience and adaptability through these trying times. Their commitment to excellence and readiness to work together as a team helped to keep supply chains open and trade flowing.
In line with PSA’s long-term strategy, the organization has now been restructured into two core businesses – Ports and Cargo Solutions, with mid-mile logistics being value-added services that we term “Port+”, which will be our unique service differentiator. At the same time, we recognize the key role that culture plays in the successful transformation of organizations and we will be investing in further efforts to foster a more inclusive, diverse, and collaborative environment – one that values innovation, people development, and continuous learning to build our talent capabilities to meet the challenges ahead.
We will continue to work closely alongside our customers, partners, and stakeholders, toward our aim of being a supply chain orchestrator and facilitator of sustainable global trade.
~ Mr. Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO, PSA International
