(Singapore=Koreanpress) Benjamin Kim = The Port of Singapore has won for the 27th time the 'Best Seaport - Asia' award at the 2015 Asia Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards (AFLAS) held in Hong Kong on June 24,  2015.

The AFLAS awards, organised by freight and logistics publication Asia Cargo News, honour organisations demonstrating leadership as well as consistency in service quality, innovation, customer relationship management and reliability.

Determined by votes cast by readers of Asia Cargo News, the Port of Singapore clinched the award for its leading performance in a range of criteria, including cost competitiveness, container shipping-friendly fee regime, provision of suitable container shipping-related infrastructure, timely and adequate investment in new infrastructure to meet future demand and the facilitation of ancillary services. The other finalists in the category this year were the Port of Hong Kong and Port of Shanghai.

The Port of Singapore continued to achieve good growth in 2014. Its annual vessel arrival tonnage reached 2.37 billion gross tonnes (GT). Its container throughput hit 33.9 million Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs), while total cargo tonnage handled reached 580.8 million tonnes. The total volume of bunkers sold in the Port of Singapore remained the highest in the world, at 42.4 million tonnes. The total tonnage of ships under the Singapore Registry of Ships was 82.2 million GT, putting Singapore among the top 10 ship registries in the world

Mr. Andrew Tan, Chief Executive of Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said, "We appreciate the recognition that we have received over the years and thank our partners and customers for their strong vote of confidence. We will continue to work closely with all our stakeholders to strengthen our competitiveness as a premier global hub port and international maritime centre.

Singapore will also continue to plan and invest ahead, such as our commissioning of the Pasir Panjang Terminal Phases 3 and 4 which will increase the overall capacity of Singapore's port handling.” Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has now officially opened these two terminals. When the expansion is fully operational by the end of 2017, Singapore would be able to handle a total of 50 million TEUs of containers annually.

Mr. Tan Cheng Peng, MPA's Director of Port Policy, received the award on behalf of the Port of Singapore.
