Singapore Airlines Cargo Awards Five-Year Contract To TCS

Singapore, August 26, 2008: Singapore Airlines Cargo has chosen Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to service its cargo revenue accounting back office processes. This multi million dollar contract will be effective for five years.

SIA Cargo has had a relationship with TCS since 2004 when TCS was entrusted with the Airline’s core critical back office revenue accounting processes. In the new agreement, taking into consideration TCS’ existing capabilities in Business Outsourcing Processes with the travel and transport industry and the Consultancy’s extensive experience in Cargo Revenue Accounting, Singapore Airlines Cargo decided to outsource additional Cargo Revenue Accounting processes.

Mr. Girija Pande, EVP and regional director for TCS Asia Pacific said: “Singapore Airlines and TCS have always enjoyed a long lasting relationship which can be termed more as a partnership in progress rather than a customer service provider relationship.”
