PSA’s logistics contract is one product of a 2020 MoU and will cover control tower management, regulatory compliance, warehousing, EV pre-assembly, and port-to-plant handling.

Dr Chi Youngcho, president and CIO of Hyundai Motor Group, said, “This is not merely a typical logistics service-and-supply partnership, but a strategic collaboration that will provide the platform to re-imagine the way mobility is created, delivered, and defined.”

PSA International group CEO Tan Chong Meng, said: “Advanced manufacturing, intelligent mobility, and electric vehicles are key pathways in Singapore’s future innovation and sustainability roadmap. We will continue to explore and co-create cargo solutions with our partners and customers to enable agile, resilient and sustainable supply chain ecosystems.”
