In Support of the Singapore Government’s Digitalisation Initiatives with the Trade and Logistics Industry

The Singapore Government’s Smart Nation goal has seen traction through the digitalisation initiatives by government agencies, associations and even private companies. VCC as a leading Infocomm Technology (ICT) solution and service provider in Asia, founded in Singapore, is also a strong supporter of these digitalisation initiatives.

An event was organised on 21 Feb 2019 for our guests to understand the benefits of using Networked Trade Platform (NTP) and also the support they can get from the Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF), to digitalise their business. It provided the opportunity for our guests to understand VCC’s role in supporting the digitalisation initiatives and the range of trade-related services VCC has to offer as a Value Added Service (VAS) provider of NTP as well as the products VCC has to help business go digital.

The event was held at VCC’s office premise with Ms Choo Wai Yee, Deputy Director of NTP and Dr Michael Teng, Assistant Secretary-General of Singapore Manufacturing Federation speaking to guests who have attended.

As a VAS provider on NTP, VCC’s Singapore General Manager, Mr Siva Gunesparan also shared that the “Automated Trade Permit Preparation” service is already available on NTP and other upcoming services such as cross-border permit preparation, the blockchain-powered smart e-Certificate of Origin and eCargo Marketplace. VCC will continue to work closely with NTP, to support and promote the adoption of NTP as the national trade platform of choice, to help trade and logistics businesses grow.

The event was a success with more than a hundred over guests, mostly freight forwarders and shippers who had attended. It was well received by guests who took the opportunity to clarify their queries during the Q&A sessions so they can make better business decisions.
