Singapore cargo steadies

Following a series of falls at Singapore’s Changi air cargo was up last month.
153,300 tonnes of airfreight moved through Changi in June, up 0.1 per cent compared to 2011. The news is welcome indicator for the Asian hub where half-year shipment volumes have declined by one per cent in the first half of the year.
Bosses will now look to the Yangtze River Express to consolidate these recent gains.
The Chinese all-cargo carrier recently started operating eight-weekly services using the 65 tonne A332F aircraft connecting Shanghai Pudong to Singapore with stopovers in Bangkok and Chongqing.
In other parts of Changi’s business improved connection to India and China have been credited with boosting traffic 9.7 per cent this year.
