About

Who we are?

The Container Depot Association (Singapore) (abbreviated as CDAS) was formed in 1991 as one of the logistics and Transport association in Singapore, with the aim of providing assistance to members and players in the industry at large. It was renamed in 2017 to the Container Depot and Logistics Association (Singapore) to encompass a wider scope of work and to be aligned with the nature of the logistics supply chain. Through working with other logistics association, as well as various government agencies and authorities, we have helped to enhance the working methods and relationships of the port operators and the land transport businesses. We also work closely with SPRING Singapore to embark on various projects to help the local SMEs to grow.

Through the years, we have established a training centre in 2007, which provided various customs, logistics, transport and safety related courses for the industry, and have also launched various systems to help improve the operation process of both the container truckers (originally the Container Tracking System (CTS) and now the electronic Container Trucking System (eCTS), as well as worked towards improving the container depot workflow process via the Container Management System (CMS).  We also organize various overseas mission study to explore new technology and learning of best practices that would be benefits to our industry players back in Singapore. CDAS is active in supporting the workplace safety for the logistics and transport service sector; also supporting the standards development for logistics industry through chairing the Technical Committee for Logistics under the Services Standards Committee of Singapore Standards Council. Through the formation of Logistics Alliance initiated by SPRING Singapore, CDAS continues to be involved in driving new initiative for the logistics industry, such as the new “Transport Integrated Platform (TRIP) and the “Vocational Training Programme for Heavy Vehicle Drivers”.

Over the years, CDAS has been actively involved engaged with various government statutory boards such as SPRING Singapore, IMDA, IE Singapore, Land Transport Authority, JTC Corporation, WSH Council and Singapore Customs to embark on projects and outreach sessions to help the Logistics industry. CDAS also works closely with other Trade Association and Partners – Singapore Logistics Association (SLA), Singapore Transport Association (STA), PSA and Jurong Port, to bring about positive changes to the industry.
