SINGAPORE, Jul 21 (GCTL) - The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is rolling out more initiatives to bolster and grow the Singapore air hub amidst an increasingly competitive environment and limited manpower resources with another S$6.3 million allocated for the second Aviation Challenge, which will be on automating the manpower-intensive process of consolidating cargo.

The consolidation of cargo work into larger pallets and containers for transport in aircraft and the reverse process of taking apart cargo from these pallets and containers at Changi Airport will come under the program

These are key daily functions in the cargo handling process undertaken by all freight forwarders and ground handlers, and it currently takes about three to five cargo handlers between 30 to 45 minutes for each function. By automating the functions, there will be significant efficiency improvement in the cargo handling process and thereby an increase in the capacity to handle the cargo traffic. The Call-for-Proposal will be launched later this year.
