Lufthansa Cargo and CHAMP Cargosystems announced plans to actively drive the transition towards ONE Record at the transport logistic trade fair in Munich.

"To support a widespread adoption of modern data sharing, both companies commit to implement the ONE Record standard within their respective IT infrastructures as a basis for interchanging data via 1R in the future," says a release from Lufthansa Cargo.

As a first step to modernise the industry’s data exchange infrastructure, both companies plan to provide an open, ONE Record-based shipment tracking API later this year, the release said. "Beyond this, both companies commit to implementing the fundamental capability of processing shipment data via ONE Record."

ONE Record is a modern and free data sharing standard for the transportation industry. "It is developed in a collaborative effort of the industry, orchestrated by IATA, to overcome the limitations of the current data exchange system. After years of piloting and partial operational implementation, ONE Record is finally ready for rollout on a broader scale."

Ashwin Bhat, CEO, Lufthansa Cargo says: “Data is crucial to our industry’s success but we have been hindered by outdated data formats and legacy infrastructure for too long. ONE Record has the potential to revolutionise the way we share information. It opens the door for a fundamental production optimisation based on high quality data sharing."

Chris McDermott, CEO, CHAMP Cargosystems adds: “CHAMP is committed to accelerate the adoption of IATA ONE Record across the transportation industry worldwide. We believe that this open data sharing standard will break down the silos of information and improve operational efficiency thanks to better data accuracy and completeness.”
