Cargo at Changi starts 2018 with double digit growth

Following a record breaking year in 2017, cargo volumes at Changi Airport continued to grow with a double digit increase in January.

The Singapore airport experienced 7.9 per cent growth in 2017, crossing the two million tonne mark for the first time by handling 2.13 million tonnes.

It has followed this up in January with 10.7 per cent growth to reach 175,590 tonnes, compared to handling 158,700 tonnes in the same month of 2017.

The growth in January builds on strong results in 2017, with imports, exports and transhipments all growing, and a focus on premium cargo products.

Changi Airport Group formalised the Pharma@Changi initiative in October 2017 to improve pharma handling, and the airport became the first community in Asia Pacific to attain IATA CEIV Pharma certification.

SATS opened a new eCommerce AirHub in April, enhancing Changi’s e-commerce mail sorting capability to support the growing e-commerce market with its state-of-the-art automated airside e-commerce mail sorting facility.
