SITA and CHAMP join trade facilitation alliance

By Damian Brett

Aviation software firms and partners SITA and CHAMP Cargosystems have joined the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation, which aims to make trade simpler.

The alliance was set up to help governments implement the World Trade Organization’s Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) and is currently delivering ten projects across Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Each project aims to create an environment where businesses can trade more easily with predictable procedures, streamlined regulation and greater automation.

Philippe Isler, the alliance’s director, said: “We are very pleased to have SITA and CHAMP Cargosystems onboard. They share our view that business has a key role to play in international development and that trade facilitation reforms will be more impactful if they are delivered by governments and business working together.

“We know that 35% of the value of world trade travels by air, and we are keen to work with more companies in the aviation industry to see how we can make trade by air cargo as smooth and as fast as possible.”

In becoming alliance partners SITA and CHAMP Cargosystems join retailers, manufacturers, logistics and technology companies who move or help to move goods across the globe every day.
