London - 16 March 2010

Global IT solutions provider NIIT Technologies has formalised a strategic partnership with Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) to globally market and implement "COSYS Intelligent Solutions (CIS)".

NIIT Technologies Ltd, the global IT solutions provider headquartered in New Delhi, India announced a strategic partnership with Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS), to jointly market and implement its state of art COSYS Intelligent Solutions (COSYS IS) to help air cargo ground handling agents improve their cargo handling capabilities.

Mr. Yacoob Piperdi, Senior Vice President (Cargo Services), SATS said, "We first developed COSYS IS to manage our cargo customers handling requirements as well as our extensive hub operations in Singapore. Subsequently, COSYS IS was deployed at our overseas operations as part of our value-adding contribution. It has proven to be a valuable operating tool. We are happy to develop a deeper partnership with NIIT Technologies and to promote COSYS IS within the airline and cargo industry."

As part of the partnership agreement, NIIT Technologies will use its global presence to market this solution to other ground handlers and airlines across the globe.

Mr. Arvind Mehrotra, Executive Vice President, NIIT Technologies said, "SATS has been a pioneer in the industry and has shown the way with their best practices and efficient air cargo handling capabilities. The best practices of SATS in air cargo handling and warehousing operations and technical expertise of NIIT Technologies, are a great combination which will go a long way in serving the needs of the industry".

COSYS IS has been deployed in Singapore Changi Airport since 2000. Besides Singapore, COSYS IS has also been implemented at SATS' joint ventures in Beijing, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, and most recently in Indonesia. In Indonesia, the system will be deployed in three airports, namely Jakarta, Denpasar and Surabaya.

Cargo handling agents and carriers of today face varied challenges like managing costs, improving operational efficiency, reducing loading errors, enabling faster and accurate information exchange and enhancing customer service.

COSYS IS is specifically designed to provide tailor-made e-freight compliant solutions to cargo handling agents and carriers. NIIT Technologies and SATS collectively have vast experience in implementing and maintaining COSYS IS at several airports.
