PSA port tour 1.

One of THE most interesting and unusual things I have done recently, was to join a tour of Singapore's PSA port, organised exclusively for the family and friends of PSA staff. I have driven past the port many times, staring in awe at all the over-sized Lego bricks stacked neatly in lines and the mysteriously to-ing and fro-ing of container laden trucks.

More snapshots to come, but these ones below show the control room of the PSA port where each staff sit in the comfort of an air-conditioned room with large screens and an ergonomically designed computer-game-like dashboard, moving heavy containers around with the use of cameras, buttons and a joy sitck. WOW!

It would be SO EXTRA COOL if the staff walked around in stiff white lab coats and wore thick black glasses with neat side partings, saying things like,"CONTAINER MOVEMENT MISSION COMPLETE." while machines whirred in the background and exuded a faint chorus of "beep beep beep beep beep!"
