As the global economy slowly returned to growth, the Port of Singapore says it maintained its global lead in bunker sales, and achieved good growth in annual vessel arrival tonnage, container and cargo throughput in 2013.

Singapore informs it is now home to about 130 shipping groups. The maritime cluster employs more than 170,000 people and contributes some seven per cent to Singapore's Gross Domestic Product, facts that were reflected in the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore's advance estimates of port indicators announced by Minister for Transport, Mr Lui Tuck Yew, at the Singapore Maritime Foundation New Year cocktail reception.

Vessel Arrival Tonnage
Annual vessel arrival tonnage reached 2.33 billion gross tons (GT) in 2013, an increase of 3.2 per cent from the 2.25 billion GT achieved in 2012. Container ships and tankers were the top contributors, each accounting for around 30 per cent of total vessel arrival tonnage.

Bunker Sales


The total volume of bunkers sold in the Port of Singapore in 2013 was 42.5 million tonnes, compared to 42.7 million tonnes in 2012. Singapore remained the world's top bunkering port in 2013.

Container and Cargo Throughput
Container throughput hit 32.6 million TEUs in 2013, a 2.9 per cent increase over the 31.6 million TEUs in 2012. Total cargo tonnage handled last year rose 3.6 per cent over 2012 to reach 557.5 million tonnes.

The Singapore Registry of Ships

The Singapore Registry of Ships did well last year. The total tonnage of ships under the register grew by 13.2 per cent or 8.6 million GT in 2013
