Port of Singapore Authority

Port of Singapore Authority
Port of Singapore Authority (PSA International Pte Ltd) is one of the world's largest port operators.

In 1863, Tan Kim Ching (Singapore's leading Chinese merchant then) came up with $120,000 to found and set up the Tanjong Pagar Dock Company (the forerunner of today's Port of Singapore Authority), purchased two steamships, "Siam" and "Singapore" and promoted the Tanjong Pagar Dock Company.

Port of Singapore Authority was formed on April 1, 1964 to take over the functions, assets and liabilities of the Singapore Harbour Board. On August 25, 1997, a parliamentary bill was passed to corporatise the Port of Singapore Authority, and PSA Corporation Ltd.

In December 2003, PSA restructured with PSA International Pte Ltd to become the main holding company for the PSA Group of companies.
