SG & Netherlands pen MOU on e-freight
Singapore - The local aviation authorities and Changi Airport Group have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Schiphol Nederland B.V. to develop paperless freight documentation for air cargo transportation between Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Singapore Changi Airport.
The signing ceremony between The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, Changi Airport Group and Netherlands' Schiphol Nederland B.V. is a mark of all three parties hoping to boost the use of e-freight.
All parties have agreed to exchange knowledge and expertise, as well as explore joint R&D possibilities to stimulate the use of e-freight between the two airports. The agreement may also serve as a stepping stone to further enhance cooperation in other areas to boost air cargo flows.
Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group said, "Our collaboration on e-freight and key air cargo initiatives will benefit airlines, cargo partners and shippers from both regions. For instance, the enabling of end-to-end handling of perishables cargo trade between Asia and Europe presents new value-added services and market growth opportunities for key stakeholders of both airports."
E-freight is an industry-wide initiative involving airports, carriers, ground handlers, freight forwarders, shippers and government agencies. It hopes to integrate the air cargo and logistics supply chain through an electronic link between stakeholders, reducing repeated manual data entry.
