Montreal : Air transport association IATA has launched an initiative to reduce audit complexity and duplication for cargo handling facilities, in the same way that its CEIV progamme has for specialist cargo.

It is estimated 360,000 days per year are wasted on redundant cargo handling audits. A new Smart Facility Operational Capacity Audit Certification (SFOC Audit Certification) program aims to reduce redundant efforts across the industry by 50 per cent through removing the need to validate generic cargo operation procedures.

Singapore is the initial focal point for this new analysis with SATS Ltd and Singapore Airlines the first to sign up.
