Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore
The mission of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is to grow a safe, vibrant air hub and civil aviation system, making a key contribution to Singapore’s success. CAAS’s roles are to oversee and promote safety in the aviation industry, develop the air hub and aviation industry, provide air navigation services, provide aviation training for human resource development, and contribute to the development of international civil aviation. CAAS works closely with the Singapore Aircargo Agents Association (SAAA) in various discussion groups, industry engagements and initiatives.
In 2010, CAAS, together with Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), International Air transport Association (IATA) and Singapore Logistics Association (SLA), signed a MoU with SAAA for the e-freight@Singapore programme. The MoU served to enhance Singapore’s competitive strengths as a leading global air cargo and logistics hub through the e-freight@Singapore programme.
It aims to integrate the Air Cargo and Logistics supply chain through electronically linking stakeholders in the supply chain, promoting the adoption of paperless freight documentation and improving industry capabilities. This enhances data accuracy by reducing repeated manual data entry, boosts supply chain visibility and eventually, leads to productivity gains in the Air Cargo and Logistics industry.
