CDEC is already implementing customs connectivity solution with CCN for the advance submission of electronic cargo manifests by airlines and agents to Philippine customs.
While CCN has established local connectivity among airlines and agents in the country when it launched CCNhub in 2011, this partnership will see CDEC continue expanding the network by promoting the portal and providing local support.
CCNhub, a secure, carrier-neutral portal, offers a comprehensive range of services including e-allotment and electronic bookings, e-flight schedules, e-AWB, as well as online proactive track and trace for the airfreight community. With the automation of these processes, customers will reap the benefits of improved efficiency and cost savings.
“CDEC started commercial operations in 1995 and its pioneering service offering to the Philippine air cargo community was an electronic gateway for electronic submission of cargo manifest information to customs in the Philippines’ premier airport (Ninoy Aquino International Airport). Our partnership with CCN will significantly boost the availability of cargo community service offerings that directly benefit the entire Philippine air cargo community,” said Leo Morada, chief executive officer of CDEC.
Teow Boon Ling, chief executive officer of CCN, said the partnership with CDEC would further strengthen his company’s commitment and services in the Philippines.
“With the combination of CDEC’s strong local presence and our suite of quality solutions, we are confident of bringing the airfreight community to the forefront of technology to better meet the industry’s demands of e-business,” Teow said.
CCN is a leading global provider of CCS services and e-solutions for the air cargo industry. Founded in 1991 with its headquarters in Singapore, CCN delivers vital, front-line intelligence essential for the logistics and supply chain processes of its customers in the air cargo industry.
CCN is also a Cargo 2000 accredited vendor for Common Data Management Platform compliance and a solutions provider for many other IATA initiatives including e-Freight and e-AWB. With a presence in 13 countries, CCN’s network has connection to over 10,000 users.
CDEC, on the other hand, has a demonstrated track record of providing reliable technology solutions to the Philippine trade, logistics and cargo community since 1995. It is a valued-added service provider accredited by the Bureau of Customs since 2007.
The company’s current e-service offerings encompass the full range of import and export documentation clearance processing required by customs and export zone authorities for seafreight and airfreight shipments.
