The TDSB application was refined along the way to enhance user experience.
Trial with Changi cargo community
A TDSB trial commenced in March 2021. With the trial facilitated by CAG, the pilot group has since expanded to 10 companies, comprising the cargo handlers dnata and SATS, and eight freight forwarders and trucking companies. With valuable feedback provided by the pilot users, the application was refined along the way to enhance user experience.
In November 2021, the pilot group including CAG signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) witnessed by Mr Ho Yuen Sang, Director of Aviation Industry, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore. The MOU signing ceremony was an important milestone not just for TDSB, but also for Changi’s air cargo industry as it signified the drive and commitment towards greater industry digital transformation and community collaboration.
Mr Ho said, “The TDSB initiative is an example of how the community can come together to leverage digital technology for mutual benefit. I look forward to more digital collaborations on the Air Cargo Community System, as we innovate together to build a stronger air cargo hub for Singapore.”
Alvin Chua, Head of Business Development, RichLand Logistics Services, added, “RichLand Logistics is pleased to join the group of pilot key stakeholders and fully supports the TDSB trial initiative. As a leading trucker for some of the largest freight forwarders operating in Changi, we are convinced that the TDSB initiative will be a game changer for the air cargo community. With the signing of the MOU, RichLand is committed to playing our part towards making this a success.”
