Skyports Signs MOU with Jurong Port

Skyports and Jurong Port have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore ship-to-shore infrastructure development at Jurong Port.

Jurong Port is a Singapore-based port that handles bulk, break-bulk, and containerized cargo.

This is an important milestone toward the commercialization of cargo drone deliveries.

The companies plan to study how drone delivery technology and infrastructure can be combined with Jurong Port’s existing cargo operations.

According to Ng Yi Han, Director (Innovation, Technology and Talent Development), Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, drone deliveries can result in faster delivery times, and reduce emissions.

Skyports is also looking to develop a framework for cargo drone delivery services.

“Tremendous progress has been made in the arena of maritime drone delivery services over the past year, and infrastructure development is the next critical step to truly realizing the vast opportunities afforded by large-scale drone delivery services,” states Yun-Yuan Tay, Head of Asia Pacific at Skyports.

Skyports recently collaborated with Wisk on advanced air mobility (AAM) infrastructure. You can read more about Skyports in Asian Sky Media’s 2021 Asia-Pacific Region UAM Report.
