Twenty teams submitted innovative solutions built on the IATA ONE Record data-sharing standard
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recently held a ONE Record Hackathon in Frankfurt, hosted by Lufthansa Cargo. Twenty teams, including the first-ever all-female team, submitted highly sophisticated and innovative solutions built on the IATA ONE Record data sharing standard to demonstrate innovative use cases that will change air cargo. The next IATA One Record Hackathon is slated to be held from 24 to 26 November 2023, in Doha, Qatar sponsored by Qatar Airways Cargo.
"ONE Record holds the key to revolutionizing air cargo, propelling efficiency and business outcomes. The hackathon is a dynamic platform for digital experts across the industry to develop innovative solutions, that will help strengthen the air cargo supply chain. IATA is committed to fostering innovation and creating a more efficient and sustainable aviation industry. We congratulate the winners and participants,” said Brendan Sullivan, IATA’s Global Head of Cargo.
The winning projects included:
- The Carbulator by Riege Software
Their solution addresses the challenge of invisible CO₂ emissions in air cargo planning. By enriching flight options with CO₂ emissions data using the ONE Record data model, decision-makers can make more sustainable choices.
- NE:ONE Play by Digitales Testfeld Air Cargo - DTAC
NE: ONE Play is a user-friendly whiteboard app that simplifies ONE Record data. It allows viewing, editing, and troubleshooting of data, making it accessible and easy to reach. It features an infinite canvas, connection to any ONE Record server, live editing, error detection, tooltips, and dark mode.
- ONE Record Crew by Lufthansa Industry Solutions (the first all-female hackathon team)
ONE Record Crew is a solution developed to solve cargo irregularities that disrupt transportation. The solution combines machine learning and ONE Record to predict and address issues, bringing transparency, customer satisfaction, and sustainability to the cargo industry.
- Switcargo by Air France KLM Martinair Cargo Team
SWITCARGO was developed as a solution to facilitate the transition to ONE Record. It enables airlines to execute shipments with partners using both ONE Record and other types of messaging.
- CargoTracking by Awery Aviation Software Team
CargoTracking.aero was developed to bridge the gap between Cargo iQ members and non-members, improving information sharing and real-time updates for enhanced planning and control. Awery’s prototype solution facilitates cross-stakeholder planning via a URL, which Cargo iQ members and non-members can share with their unmonitored providers, enabling them to input shipment details through IATA’s ONE Record Data Sharing Standard API. “Our solution is open source, and we truly believe it could develop quickly once implemented by the air cargo community, speeding up the adoption of the ONE Record standard across the whole industry,” said Vitaly Smilianets, Chief Executive Officer, Awery. The solution was praised by judges for its ability to fill in the gaps in the Cargo iQ door-to-door Route Map, which enables stakeholders to collaborate on planning and monitoring the journey of an air cargo shipment.
- Borderless Digital Salmon Movement by Vediafi Oy team
Borderless Digital Salmon Movement was developed to simplify the cross-border transportation of time-sensitive goods. BDI nodes facilitate information exchange between transportation companies and border crossings, ensuring freshness and efficient passage.
The vision for ONE Record is an end-to-end digital logistics and transport supply chain where data is easily and transparently exchanged in a digital ecosystem of air cargo stakeholders, communities, and data platforms. The goal of ONE Record is to replace the many data standards used for transport documents with a single record for every shipment.
