Under the 1912 Straits Settlements Port Ordinance, the Singapore Harbour Board was formed on 1 July 1913. On 1 April 1964, the Port of Singapore Authority came into being under the 1963 Port of Singapore Authority Ordinance to replace the Singapore Harbour Board and several organisations that have been operating in the port.
A parliamentary bill was passed on 25 August 1997 to turn the Port of Singapore Authority, a state organisation into an independent commercial company. PSA Corporation Limited (simplified Chinese: 新加坡港务集团) was thus corporatised on 1 October 1997. The company kept the initials “PSA” as its brand name but it is no longer an acronym. The regulatory functions of the former authority were transferred to Singapore's new maritime regulator, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).
Following a restructuring exercise in December 2003, PSA International Pte Ltd (simplified Chinese: PSA国际港务集团) became the holding company for the PSA Group of companies with PSA Singapore as one of its flagship terminals.
PSA participates in port projects across Asia, Europe and the Americas with flagship operations in PSA Singapore and PSA Antwerp.
PSA Marine Pte Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of PSA International, provides marine services to the maritime and shipping community. They include pilotage and port and terminal towage. PSA Marine owns and operates a fleet of over 80 vessels in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, India, Australia and Oman.
PSA's employees in Singapore are organised under the Singapore Port Workers' Union (SPWU) and the Port Officers' Union (POU).
