General Cargo Manifest advance information module rolled out


módulo de información anticipada del Manifiesto General de Carga

From December 22, all airlines in Argentina must use the General Cargo Manifest advance information module. Implementation of this system began in April 2014, following publication in the Official Gazette of General Resolution 3596. These regulations govern the module and set a timetable for its adoption, whose deadline ran out last month.

As indicated in Article 1 of the Resolution, the module includes “all the information on the means of transport reaching the country by air”, including those which arrive empty, and “the sum of all transported goods”, regardless of their destination (goods in transit and transit aboard the aircraft).

From a technical viewpoint, the advance information consists of 4 different messages of the IATA Cargo-XML standard for airfreight e-messaging transmissions. These are:

  • Airline flight manifest (XFFM):notifies the details of shipments loaded on a given flight and contains all the air waybills transported in the flight.
  • Air Waybill / Master Air Waybill (XFWB): provides the details of each air waybill included in the flight manifest (XFFM).
  • House Air Waybill Manifest (XFHL): details the House Air Waybills contained in each Master Air Waybill (XFWB).
  • House Air Waybill (XFZB): contains the details of each House Air Waybill included in the House Air Waybills manifest (XFHL).

Rolling out the advance information module “optimizes customs checks on the basis of risk analysis regarding the means of transport arriving by air and the goods transported", as set forth in the Resolution. The aim of this technological breakthrough in electronic data interchange between airlines and customs authorities is to streamline trade, improve the international logistics chain and enhance security.


e-Air Waybill solution

To optimize communications, EDICOM has developed the e-Air Waybill solution. This platform automatically generates the cargo information electronically according to the XML standards set out by the IATA. Then, the messages are sent via EDI to all stakeholders involved in the process: cargo operators, airlines and customs authorities.
