Flexport adopts CHAMP’s cutting-edge data-interchange format cargoJSON
December 11, 2017: California-based freight forwarding and customs brokerage company Flexport has recently integrated Luxembourg-based CHAMP Cargosystems’s messaging platform—Traxon cargoHUB as well as its new cargoJSON data-interchange format.
According to reports, cargoJSON is a language-independent data format which CHAMP has defined for air cargo messaging.
cargoJSON was recently added to Traxon cargoHUB, which is fully interoperable with the existing IATA cargoIMP and IATA cargoXML formats. Flexport is CHAMP’s first customer to have implemented it.
“CHAMP and its partners are always in a pursuit to seek innovative and effective ways to create efficiencies and drive rapid adoption of digitization in the industry,” said Laurent Jossa, head of sales- distribution services of CHAMP Cargosystems.
“Flexport has been agile in implementing the services and the new messaging format and CHAMP has been quick to meet this need,” he said.
“We are constantly seeking new partners to get better information for our clients. We are glad to find CHAMP, which offers a modern cargoJSON API that makes it easy for our team to seamlessly integrate their information into our product.,” said Phoebe Rockwood, air freight product manager of Flexport.
“CHAMP has made this possible with its large community reach, comprehensive solution and related services, and state-of the-art communication technology,” he said.
