SIA and Cainiao linking up for cargo services

Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Cainiao Network, the logistics arm of Chinese e-tailing giant Alibaba Group, will work closely to "enhance international air cargo services".
The link-up, part of a wider passenger-led "comprehensive strategic collaboration" will see SIA joining Cainiao Network’s broader efforts in building "a global smart logistics network that delivers across China within 24 hours and globally within 72 hours".
No further details were available on the cargo aspect of the deal.
The two companies said that the collaboration is aimed at "enhancing the customer experience for travellers through the transformative potential of technology, as well as joining forces in other areas".
The alliance represents a significant extension of a partnership between SIA and Alibaba Group’s affiliate, Alipay, which was introduced as a payment option on SIA’s website in 2013.
