EDICOM to hold Workshop on XML Cargo system in Mexico
On June 18, EDICOM is holding a Workshop to report on the technical and legal requirements of the XML Cargo system in air transport. The encounter takes place just a few weeks after the entry into force of this mandatory standardfor airlines, freight forwarders and bonded warehouses. As set out in Annex 22 of the General Foreign Trade Rules, as of 1 June air freight sector operators must issue their air waybill documentation electronically and submit it to the VUCEM (Single Window for Foreign Trade in Mexico).
The event will take place between 9:00 and 14:00 pm at the Frida Kahlo Auditorium of the Marriott Reforma Hotel in Mexico City. The workshop will enjoy the participation of the Tax Administration Service (SAT), with an informative report on the outcomes in the first couple of weeks of the new mandatory regulation. The authority will also be sharing information on the proper way to send these documents to the VUCEM, along with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), explaining the development of the Electronic Waybill and its scope for 2015.
To round off the Workshop, EDICOM Business Manager Luis Moreno is presenting EDICOMAir. This solution for issuing and sending air waybill documents enables users to comply with the regulation, with no need to migrate the operator's current system (IMP Cargo) to XML Cargo. This is thanks to a powerful translation module that adapts the message to the required language no matter which schema was used initially. This way, users achieve significant cost savings.
In addition to discovering the solutions to implement this system, the June 18 Workshop is an opportunity to find out more about XML Cargo from its major proponents: IATA and the SAT. Interested parties can check out the full event schedule and register through this website.
