Jurong Port is Singapore’s only gateway for all types of general cargo, including steel, forestry products, metals, rubber, machinery & mechanical appliances, and project cargo.
Annually, the Port handles over 7 million tonnes of general cargo, with over 37,000 vessels calling at the terminal round-the-clock.
Over the past three years, the terminal has undergone enhancement to its infrastructural facilities to cater to increased cargo volumes. More berths and storage areas have been created and upgraded to cater to more vessels and cargo load.
Today, the terminal has 2 roll-on roll-off mechanical ramps for landing crafts; a Small Crafts Terminal for wooden crafts, and a Lighterage Terminal for ship-chandlers and outer-port limit vessel operators.
There are also ample transit warehouses, adjacent to the berths for easy ship-to-shore movements; and large apron areas for loading and discharging operations. For large-sized and heavy-lift project cargo, the terminal provides mobile harbor crane for cost-effective handling operation.
As an accredited hub of the London Metal Exchange, the terminal is ideal for the storage and transhipment of its traded metal in for itgots.
Jurong Port’s integrated port concept has always been a great attraction. The synergy has enabled the Port to dual-handle general cargo and containers on the same berth as well as to perform seamless handling of bulk imports, which are discharged, bagged and containerized for re-exports hassle-free. In addition, several companies are located in the Port’s on-dock warehouses, within the Free Trade Zone, to carry out cargo consolidation and distribution to the region.
More importantly, the terminal, known for its reliability and efficiency, is a hub of choice for its customer-centric services and facilities.
