YCH Group will provide their integrated supply chain activities such as shipping, freight-forwarding, warehousing and others through this platform


Singapore, 3 October 2018 – YCH Group, Asia Pacific’s leading integrated end-to-end supply chain management and logistics partner joined in the signing of the Supply Chain and Logistics Strategic Collaboration Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Commodities Intelligence Centre (CIC), together with Global eTrade Services (GeTS), PIL Logistics, WLNA and Zallsoon Information Technology (Wuhan) Co., Ltd.

Under the MoU signing, YCH will provide logistics services to CIC, and capture value from cross-border commodities, that could include sugar, cotton and silk, trade flows through integrated supply chain activities such as shipping, freight-forwarding, warehousing and others through the e-trading platform. While the integration of supply chain activities will be done through GeTS’ platform, CALISTA, the parties under this MoU will also look into the exploration of trade and customs compliance solutions provided by the platform.

This partnership will open up new opportunities for Singapore’s logistics players to capture value from the cross-border trade flows and supply chain activities that do not come through Singapore.

The signing ceremony was held earlier on today, witnessed by Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry, Dr Koh Poh Koon at the inaugural Singapore Logistics Forum 2018 organised by Enterprise Singapore.
