The airport, together with three other parties will pursue IATA certification.
Changi Airport Group Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, Enterprise Singapore, and Workforce Singapore, have joined forces to enhance the airport’s cargo handling capabilities through the grant of the certification of International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators for Perishable Logistics (CEIV Fresh).
The four parties will co-fund certification costs to strengthen Changi’s capabilities in the handling of perishable cargo.
Perishable cargo represents about 13% of Changi’s total air exports and imports by volume, where top cargo markets to and from the airport come from Australia, Norway and India.
At the same time, the nine IATA CEIV Pharma certified members of the Pharma@Changi initiative, which was launched in October 2017, have also renewed their commitment for the next two years to jointly pursue the best standards in Changi’s pharmaceutical handling.
