Mexico: Airlines and Air Freight Agents to join Cargo XML schema


On April 7 2015, the specifications to be met by operators involved in the airfreight sector in Mexico 2015 were published in the DOF (Official Gazette of the Federation).

The new regulation specifically affects airlines, freight forwarding agents and bonded warehouses. By the 1 June deadline date, they must submit the documents making up the so-called "Air Cargo Manifest" to the VUCEM (Mexico’s Single Window for Foreign Trade):

  • “HOUSE” Air Waybills (XFZB)
  • “MASTER” Air Waybills (XFWB)
  • Cargo Manifest (XFFM)

The SAT has opted for Cargo-XML, a transaction schema promoted by the IATA (International Air Transport Association), as the communication standard for these e-documents. The aim is to develop an electronic communication system between airfreight operators in the international scope.

Businesses that do not have any issuing setup for e-documents must undertake the developments necessary to their AWB fee management systems, so that they are able to generate these new data schemas, which must be submitted regularly to the Single Window.

Nevertheless, numerous airlines and freight forwarders already have electronic document issuing systems based on the CARGO IMP standard. In this case, they must carry out the appropriate transformations to translate their current messages to the new CARGO-XML standard.

If you need to set up a CARGO-XML e-document issuing system, or have to adapt your current CARGO-IMP-based solution, you can count on EdicomAIR, the solution developed by EDICOM so that you can promptly comply with the specifications set by the SAT.

EdicomAIR also links up with EDICOMNet, the private B2B communications network which simplifies submission of your CARGO-XML documents to the Single Window and their dissemination to the airlines with which you have implemented electronic waybill exchange projects.
