“Moving every size of vessel, 500 times a day.”

We provide essential pilotage service to more than 180,000 vessels annually in the Port of Singapore, the world’s busiest container transhipment hub.

Our harbour pilots undergo a structured and comprehensive in-house training programme before they attain their harbour pilot licences from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.

With the aid of integrated IT systems, our harbour pilots are able to obtain real-time critical information on-the-go, and can readily provide ship masters with advice to navigate their vessels efficiently and safely in congested port waters.

The Pilot Pledge

We, the Harbour Pilots of PSA Marine, pledge that:

We will always safeguard the interests of Singapore, the Port, our stakeholders and the maritime environment.

We will always uphold the highest standards of pilotage service and carry our duties in a Safe, Professional, Reliable and Efficient manner.

Together, we will work in unison, supporting one another to achieve Total Excellence.

With our free will and honour, we make this pledge.
