Singapore Freight & Logistics Market

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 23 marzo 2019

Singapore has seamless transport connectivity. It has dense sea and road networks for multimodal transshipment, with a Seamless intermodal connectivity between one of the world’s busiest seaports and airports. The airport is less than an hour drive from PSA terminals, the world’s second-largest container port and busiest transshipment hub, with connectivity to over 600 ports.PSA has four container terminals, one multi-purpose terminal, and one vehicle transshipment terminal operational in the country. PSA also has a huge shipping line network of 200 shipping lines, connecting 123 countries with vessels, with a frequency of 60 per day.Changi International Airport is one of the world’s busiest airports for international air cargo, handling over 1.97 million metric ton annually, with transshipment volume accounting for almost half of the throughput, hence regarded as global air cargo hub.Designed to move cargo, like clockwork round the clock, the cold chain facilities, warehouses, and offices at Changi Airfreight Centre (CAC), coupled with the Airport Logistics Park of Singapore (ALPS), are well equipped to cater to all operational needs.Airfreight operations at Changi Airport are centered at the Changi Airfreight Centre (CAC), a 24-hour Free Trade Zone, where transshipment cargo can be broken down and reconsolidated with minimal Customs formalities.Insights on Maritime Transport and Role of Singapore as a Key Transhipment Hub. Port of Singapore is recognized as the busiest container transshipment hub in the world. The strategic geographical location of the country serves as a gateway to ASEAN countries and the rest of the world, and has a connection with more than 600 ports in over 120 countries. Owing to the excellent quality and services, world-class infrastructure, and consistent R&D activities, the maritime sector has gained traction over the past few years. Despite the decreased trend in the container volume of the major transshipment hubs, like Hong Kong, and fierce competition from neighboring ports in Malaysia, the container traffic at the Singapore ports reached 33.7 million TEUs in 2017, which represented an increase of 8.9%, as compared to 2016. Similarly, the total cargo throughput of the Singaporean ports had registered 627.69 million metric ton in 2017, an increase of 5.8%, as compared to 2016, in which bulk oil cargo recorded a growth of 5.3% in 2017. Owing to the future growth in the container throughput, MPA, along with PSA Singapore, has been expanding the Pasir Panjang Terminal. It is expected that the port capacity will be increased by 50% upon the completion of the expansion process. Additionally, the ports will be able to handle the mega-container ships. To reduce the shipping costs and gain productivity, shipping companies are coming up with mega-alliances. The ports with the capability of handling the mega-alliances gain competitive advantage.

Cube Temple: An ethereal creation of wire mesh in Singapore

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 11 settembre 2018

Singapore Dal 13 al 16 settembre 2018, presso la sede di Cargo 39 (39 Keppel Road #03-03, Tanjong Pagar Distripark), l’artista darà vita ad uno spazio dinamico e iridescente, in cui diventerà possibile sperimentare una dimensione eterea, mentre la luce favorirà un’interpretazione dell’opera soggetta a diversi stati d’animo.
La ricerca di Edoardo Tresoldi, uno dei giovani artisti più influenti d’Europa (“Forbes”, 2017), recentemente incoronato al Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California, si caratterizza per l’uso della rete metallica. A differenza dell’architettura convenzionale, che racchiude lo spazio restituendo un paesaggio modificato dall’uomo, la sua struttura essenziale abbraccia il contesto e accoglie la presenza umana dando vita a un’inedita realtà esperienziale. Una dimensione eterea in costante dialogo con il paesaggio, inteso come contaminazione di linguaggi culturali, sociali e identitari, le cui dinamiche diventano parti costituenti dell’opera. L’esposizione è realizzata in collaborazione con Ambasciata d’Italia a Singapore, ICCS e Regione Emilia-Romagna.

UiPath Heads to Singapore for First Event in Southeast Asia

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 1 settembre 2018

Singapore the Garden Studio in the Andaz Hotel (5 Fraser St) on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 from 1-7 p.m. UiPath, the leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company, today announced its first event to be held in Southeast Asia, with #UiPathTogether Singapore taking place on September 12, 2018. #UiPathTogether Singapore will bring together some of the leading experts in RPA, AI and digital transformation, including Singapore and Asian companies that are leveraging RPA to automate internal processes.
Some of Asia, and the world’s, leading companies will be in attendance, sharing their experiences in automation, digital transformation and the future of work. Speakers include George Asgari, regional head of customer engineering at Google; Saranya Sriram, cloud solution architect lead – APAC partnerships at Microsoft; and Hajime Harvey Koyanagi, managing director, Tokyo, Japan at Dentsu. Additional Asian firms present include Dairy Farm, represented by Finance Director Tom van der Lee; and Philip Kent, executive vice president of MSIG, among others.Flying in for #UiPathTogether Singapore are some of UiPath’s top executives, including Ashim Gupta, chief customer success officer, who in his previous role at GE pioneered RPA within the company; Boris Krumrey, chief robotics officer, who leads the product and integration design of the company’s RPA and AI technologies; and Bobby Patrick, chief marketing officer, responsible for global branding, product marketing, communications and demand generation.Globally, the RPA market was valued at US $271 million in 2016 and is expected to grow to US $1.2 billion by 2021 at a compound annual growth rate of 36 percent. Nowhere is a technology such as RPA more relevant than for a country such as Singapore, given its need for productivity growth and smart city ambitions, and UiPath has seen over 2,000 percent growth here over the past year.The region’s finance hub has a highly-developed financial services industry which is drawn to the city due, among other reasons, to its educated workforce. RPA is able to automate many of the repetitive, rules-based tasks that bankers currently do, freeing them up to do more high value work. This not only increases productivity but reduces the cost of business, further improving Singapore’s competitive edge. The same can be applied across many other industries, from manufacturing to insurance, and to other nations in the region looking to rise up the economic value chain.Significantly, though, RPA can drive a city’s smart city ambitions. Innovations from self-driving cars to better healthcare provision rely on data and the smart analysis and application of that data.

Singapore’s HES Energy Systems Pushes Forward on Long Range Hydrogen-Electric Flight

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 7 febbraio 2018

Singaporean Energy TechHES Energy Systems, the leading Fuel Cell Systems developer from Singapore has formed an Alliance with three French Clean Energy and Aerospace Tech companies. Named FLY-HY, the group’s mission is to begin addressing the global market as a unified value chain, ranging from hydrogen refueling systems to energy storage and power conversion, and cooperate with leading designers of electric aircraft.
HES Energy Systems develops small-scale battery alternatives based on its special breed of ultra-light hydrogen fuel cell systems capable of storing energy at over 700Wh/kg, 3 to 4 times the electrical energy per weight of lithium batteries. “The hydrogen molecule is the lightest energy carrier in the universe. Meanwhile most of today’s electric aircraft research has been focused on work-arounds using much heavier lithium batteries. We see a clear opportunity to contribute to the exciting world of electric flight” said Taras Wankewycz, Founder & CEO of HES and parent company H3 Dynamics.Thinking big yet starting small, HES started out increasing the flight endurance of small electric powered unmanned aircraft (UAVs) or drones, using its special lightweight fuel cell and hydrogen storage technology. The company has been working closely with numerous tier-one electric-UAV manufacturers and believes a scaled-up version of its products could also improve the flight range for personal mobility aerial vehicles as well as electric-powered passenger aircraft.
2018 was proclaimed by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Former French President François Hollande as the Year of Innovation between France and Singapore, highlighting Cleantech as one of the key focus areas. In June 2017, Singapore’s HES’s parent company H3 Dynamics established its European HQ in Paris, a decision warmly welcomed by President Emmanuel Macron and his government.After operating for some time locally in France, H3 Dynamics decided to combine its “Made in Singapore” aerospace-grade hydrogen fuel cell capability with complementary “Made in France” high tech solutions, including novel electric UAV platforms (Toulouse-based Airborne Concept, backed by Airbus), hydrogen gas storage devices (AD-VENTA), and innovative hydrogen generating electrolyzers (ERGOSUP, backed by Air Liquide) which is now adapting its innovative systems to refueling small HES-powered hydrogen drones.HES Energy Systems and ERGOSUP are also working in partnership with DELAIR, another French drone tech company, on project HYDRONE, a laureate of a French National Call for Projects “Territoires Hydrogène”. The national project aims to deploy five hydrogen drone and refueling systems capable of covering the entire French territory during 2018 and 2019.This initiative also follows the launch of the Hydrogen Council in 2017, involving a number of high-profile companies including Air Liquide, Alstom, AngloAmerican, BMW Group, Daimler, Engie, Honda, Hyundai, Shell, Linde, Total, Toyota, Audi, General Motors, Statoil & Iwatani, working together to promote a new hydrogen economy and society.

6th Responsible Business Forum

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 27 ottobre 2017

Marina Bay SandsSingpore Marina Bay Sands, 21 – 23 November 2017. The Responsible Business Forum (RBF) on Sustainable Development, Singapore 2017, co-organised with the United Nations Development Programme, will explore the inter-linkages between the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and what can be done to achieve them through an integrated approach.
During the recent World Food Day ceremony in Rome, Pope Francis called for governments around the globe to collaborate to make migration a safer and voluntary choice. To achieve this, ending conflicts and tackling climate change are essential, and they in turn help to improve food security. This year global hunger increased for the first time in over a decade, by 11%, which is 815 million people, due to the proliferation of violent conflicts and climate-related shocks. The increase in hunger as a result of conflicts is an example of how SDG 2 and SDG 16 are connected, just as there are other connections between the Goals.

Italia Startup porta l’innovazione italiana a Singapore

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 maggio 2017

singapore-marinaItalia Startup prosegue la propria politica di sostegno allo sviluppo internazionale dell’ecosistema dell’innovazione italiano. Dal 3 al 4 maggio l’Associazione sarà presente, per il terzo anno consecutivo, all’Innovfest Unbound di Singapore dove, in collaborazione con l’Italian Trade Agency (ITA), darà l’opportunità ad alcune giovani imprese innovative associate, scaleup e ai loro partner, aziende incluse, di prendere parte a uno dei più importanti eventi in Asia sui temi dell’innovazione e delle startup.Saranno le startup Bermat, Littlesea, Mon-k, Wear, Wib e XMetrics insieme all’agenzia della Provincia Autonoma di Trento Trentino Sviluppo e all’acceleratore di startup hardware Industrio le realtà associate a Italia Startup che prenderanno parte alla missione per presentarsi all’Innovfest Unbound di Singapore, manifestazione che attrae oltre 8.000 persone da tutto il mondo. I partecipanti avranno così l’opportunità di entrare in contatto con l’ecosistema startup asiatico e le possibilità di funding, partnership, market expansion o ricerca che esso offre. Grazie alla collaborazione con ITA, sarà allestita una “Italian Area” che ospiterà le startup e gli incubatori associati partecipanti, dando loro la possibilità di incontrare investitori e stakeholders provenienti da Singapore ma anche da tutto il mercato asiatico. Sono previsti 60 minuti di pitching time dedicato alle startup italiane oltre all’accesso a eventi privati quali hackatons, competizioni e speed dating con investitori.Oltre alla partecipazione in fiera, per dare ancora maggior visibilità e supporto ai partecipanti, nelle giornate del 2 e 5 maggio verrà organizzata un’agenda di attività che comprende incontri con investitori e partner locali, visite a incubatori e acceleratori, centri di ricerca e meeting per dare tutte le informazioni su come operare a Singapore ed in Asia.“La presenza per il terzo anno di fila dell’Associazione e dei suoi associati ad Innovfest è motivata dalla grande attrattività del mercato asiatico per l’innovazione italiana e dalla convenienza di Singapore come rampa di lancio verso tale mercato.” commenta Marco Villa, consigliere di Italia Startup con delega allo Sviluppo Internazionale “Singapore è il Paese più competitivo in Asia ed il secondo nel mondo. Gli sforzi del governo e del settore privato, in pochi anni, hanno creato uno degli ecosistemi più dinamici ed attrattivi per startup e scaleup da varie parti del mondo. Per queste ragioni è particolarmente utile dare alle startup italiane e all’ecosistema che le sostiene la possibilità di aprirsi verso questi mercati, tanto dinamici quanto meno affollati dei tradizionali sbocchi europei ed americani.”Con la presenza di 65 fondi di Venture Capital ed investimenti per circa $1bn sia nel 2014, che nel 2015, Singapore è al centro dell’innovazione in Asia. È inoltre il quarto centro finanziario al mondo e il primo Paese in Asia per easiest place to do business, most competitive country, IP protection and transparency. La missione a Singapore rientra tra le numerose attività relative all’area Sviluppo Internazionale organizzate da Italia Startup allo scopo di promuovere l’ecosistema italiano all’estero e sviluppare una rete di rapporti solidi con altri ecosistemi mondiali.
