MOU was Signed at The fourth Joint Implementation Committee (JIC) Meeting for the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Demonstration Initiative on Strategic Connectivity (CCI)

On January 8, 2019, vCargo Cloud Pte. Ltd. and 安道亿联(重庆)科技 (MTRLink Co., Ltd.) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), in Chongqing, on the China-Singapore International Multimodal Transport Logistics Collaborative Service Information Platform Project. This project was one of the main topics at the dialogue on the joint building of the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor between Singapore and China.

Mr Chu Bin, Director of the Information and Communication Technology Promotion Department of the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Demonstration Initiative on Strategic Connectivity Administrative Bureau, Minister Chan Chun Sing of the Singapore Ministry of Trade and Industry, Minister Josephine Teo of the Singapore Minister of Manpower and Second Minister of Home Affairs, Mayor of Chongqing Mr Tang Liangzhi, Vice Mayor of Chongqing Mr Liu Guiping and other senior officials, were there to witness the signing and exchanging of MOU between Mr Desmond Tay, Chief Executive Officer of VCC and Mr Jing Xuefei, Chairman of MTRLink Co., Ltd. VCC and MTRLink aim to leverage on each other’s strength, to open up the multimodal transport chain operation link and information link to jointly build an international multimodal transport logistics collaborative service platform.

Mr Desmond Tay said that VCC would use their flagship CamelONE™ platform as the basis to integrate and consolidate different resources in the “Belt and Road” countries in which CamelONE is deployed, by matching products and services and by synchronizing and interfacing processes and workflow, so as to explore optimal applications for “International Land-Sea Trade”. This will help to achieve a sustainable cooperative operation model, to provide technology support for Chongqing to be the international logistics hub.

Mr Jing Xuefei, Chairman of MTRLink, also pointed out, that the company will base on China and other countries’ multimodal transport logistics operations model, to leverage on the advantages of its platform (“Multimodal Transport Logistics Intelligent Collaboration Platform”). Through standardising with VCC CamelONE’s operational, data and processes standards, Mr Jing Xuefei aims to form a unified domestic and international standardisation system as a reference model for multimodal transport operations. He also intends to further explore future framework for further standardisation and consolidation with VCC.

After the signing ceremony, both sides were interviewed by various mainstream media around the world. In the interview, Mr Desmond Tay of VCC highlighted that VCC is deployed in 16 countries, such as 5 countries in Eastern African Community (EAC), Indonesia, Cambodia, Russia and so on. VCC’s strength lies in their global connectivity, which will expedite the process of bringing this connectivity to this project. In the future, it will also bring other advantages to the project, in areas such as trade or logistics. For example, in cases where countries in the EAC have deployed a single window project with VCC, they will be able to transfer information to this project.

Recently, VCC has also signed a contractual agreement with Russia’s RSTrade. One of the areas covered under this relates to the China-Russian train, which is the international intermodal corridor connecting China’s Northeast Railway Network with the Russian Siberian Railway. The geographical proximity and transport connectivity, coupled with a regional digital platform such as CamelONE, will see a lot of potential for increased trade in the future. This will augment VCC’s presence in the Central Asia region, which is still in its infancy stage.

With regards to playing a role in promoting the joint building of the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor to other China-Singapore enterprises, Mr Desmond Tay said that VCC would continue to strengthen our platform’s solutions and services in all respect in trade and logistics. This will help to facilitate simpler and convenient trade between Singapore traders and China traders, to bring more influence to the cooperation between China and Singapore.
