CHAMP urges stakeholders to adopt IATA ONE Record for better data exchange
With CHAMP Cargosystems completing the first phase of the IATA ONE Record pilot to showcase the benefits and feasibility of the initiative, the company has stressed upon the collective adoption of this project by all stakeholders in the supply chain.
Through TRAXON cargoHUB, CHAMP has the ability to bridge the gap between the old and new data world. “Increasing accuracy and data quality, however, requires not only the technology to do so – but the will to collect it on the ground,” the company stated in its blog.
CHAMP Cargosystems believes that there is a long road ahead. “While we already know the benefits and the greener future it offers carriers throughout the air cargo supply chain, the onus is on our partners throughout the supply chain to accept and implement an unquestionably better data format,” it added.
IATA One Record proposes a solution by defining a common API (Application Programming Interface) for all electronic platforms used by various stakeholders in the supply chain involved in the data provisioning process. It offers the ability of standardizing the data exchange protocol in the air cargo industry and provides added benefits of better data quality, control, transparency, and ease of connectivity.
