EDICOM joins IATA Cargo XML Task Force


EDICOM now forms part of the Cargo XML Task Force organized and run by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The working group brings together airlines, freight forwarders, cargo handlers and I T providers, all of them front runners in their sectors. The aim is to share experiences of e-AWB implementation, assess the progress made and work on new messages with the Cargo XML standard.

The Task Force members include renowned airlines such as Lufthansa, American Airlines, Swiss, Air France, British Airways or Emirates. Other large companies such as Inditex or Kuehne&Nagel are also taking part in the initiative. This working group has laid the foundation for the development, over the years, of Cargo XML messages endorsed by the airfreight industry.

Implementing this standard facilitates the removal of paper from the cargo process and its replacement by electronic messages. The initiative, which IATA has christened e-freight, should help cut down the use of paper by 7800 tons per year worldwide. In addition, this technology minimizes the time spent on transactions, improving security and lessening the likelihood of mistakes being made due to manual management.

Currently, the penetration of e-freight is widely acknowledged, especially in Latin America. In fact, Argentina and Mexico have taken legal measures to promote its use. Even so, the number of customs authorities joining the IATA is gradually rising and now includes Paraguay, Canada, Pakistan, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Bahrain. According to the organization, system rollout in 2015 is expected to reach 45%, rising to 80% in 2016.


EDICOM, Strategic Partner

EDICOM is a key IATA member in the Cargo XML area, which is why it forms part of the Strategic Partner initiative. Through it and the Task Force, Edicom collaborates closely with this organization, giving recommendations on the most appropriate XML requirements for each message, migration of the former IMP standard to the new format or communications with the different customs agencies.
