VCC is the Appointed Technology Partner of SAAA@Singapore

Based on a report from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), since 2005, there is a rapid increase in cross-border e-commerce sales of an average of 20% each year. However, with these opportunities, it also comes with evident challenges which the air freight industry faces; such as keeping up with the ever-increasing capacity demand, ensuring timely delivery of packages as well as the meeting of changing requirements of consumers.

SAAA@Singapore, a key association representing the air cargo industry in Singapore, recognises the potential and ability to use technologies to disrupt the airfreight industry and with that, to help its members keep up with the challenges ahead.

Aligning with VCC’s vision of simplifying global trade, we are happy to announce that VCC is the appointed technology partner of SAAA@Singapore, to develop and operate a community platform that will be built exclusively for its members. To help them digitalise their operations and to drive sustainable business growth in the new digital economy. With this partnership, SAAA@Singapore members will also be able to tap on CamelONE™’s connectivity and global footprint in 16 countries, gaining entry to new markets beyond Singapore.

The MOU signing ceremony was held on 15 February 2019, at Tanah Merah Country Club and was signed between Mr Desmond Tay, Chief Executive Officer of VCC and Mr Steven Lee, PBM Chairman of SAAA@Singapore. We look forward to commencing this project with SAAA@Singapore, to help with the digitalisation of the air cargo industry in Singapore.
