Officiating the event were Mr. François Hollande, President of the French Republic, and Mr. Khaw Boon Wan, Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport, Singapore.

The CMA CGM – PSA Lion Terminal (CPLT) started operations with two mega container berths at PSA Singapore’s Pasir Panjang Terminal 5 (PPT 5) that had an initial annual capacity of 2 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) in July 2016. With the addition of two more berths under Phase 2 of its development, CPLT is now equipped with a total operating capacity of 4 million TEUs. CPLT has achieved high service levels with an average Gross Berth Productivity of more than 160 moves per hour for the mega vessels since the beginning of 2017.

Leveraging the industry-leading port infrastructure and technologies including the state-of-the-art yard automation at PSA’s newest PPT expansion, CPLT is well-primed to serve the mega vessels of CMA CGM and the affiliate shipping lines of the Group. This also enhances Singapore’s standing as a premier International Maritime Centre.
