SINGAPORE AIRLINES SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETES CARGO IQ AUDIT


Geneva, Switzerland, Monday 28th October 2019 – Singapore Airlines has successfully completed its most recent Cargo iQ audit by external auditing company SGS, and retains its certification as an accredited member.

All members are audited every three years to ensure they are aligned with Cargo iQ standards and specifications.

“Our audit is an essential part of being a Cargo iQ member and a useful tool to evaluate their quality management system,” said Ariaen Zimmerman, Executive Director, Cargo iQ.

“The audit is conducted in three-year cycles, and its standards are continuously evaluated to stay up-to-date and reflect the best practices in the air cargo industry, as well as provide full end-to-end transparency on the planning and progress of air cargo shipments.

“At Cargo iQ we are committed to continuous processes improvement in air cargo and the audits are a way to regularly review our members, as well as help us stay aligned with our latest quality standards, to ensure Cargo iQ delivers true value to its members and their air freight customers.”

SGS audited the Cargo division of Singapore Airlines, which is based in Singapore.

“Our successful completion of this recertification audit serves as an added affirmation that we are using the Cargo iQ quality standards and processes in an effective manner to serve our customers. Achieving a perfect score on the audit is also a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team,” said Chin Yau Seng, Senior Vice President Cargo, Singapore Airlines.

“Maintaining high standards and consistently delivering on commitments to our customers continue to be our top priorities.  Cargo iQ is an important enabler that helps us to sharpen our focus on systematically achieving these objectives.”

About Cargo iQ

Cargo iQ is a cross-stakeholder organization working to create and implement quality standards aimed at enhancing the customer service experience of the worldwide air cargo industry.

Originally founded by leading airlines and forwarders to improve reliability in the supply chain, Cargo iQ membership has grown to include more than 60 members from across the supply chain during its 25 years of operation, which it celebrates in 2022.

Global Cargo iQ membership now includes airlines, freight forwarders, ground handling agents, IT solution providers, Road Feeder Services (RFS), and, most recently, small- to medium-sized enterprise (SME) forwarders.

Operating as an independent, not-for-profit group, members work together to develop a system of shipment planning and performance monitoring for air cargo based on common business processes and milestones.

Members are externally audited at regular intervals for quality compliance as proof of their continuous improvement and commitment to delivering quality-driven services and supporting real-time service delivery.

As part of that system, the Cargo iQ Master Operating Plan (MOP), which has been endorsed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), defines the standard end-to-end process of transporting air cargo.

The organization is supported by IATA as one of its interest groups.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
