CHAMP Cargosystems, Qatar Airways Cargo and Agility complete the IATA ONE Record pilot

[ January 14, 2021   //   ]

CHAMP Cargosystems, along with Qatar Airways Cargo and Agility has completed the first phase of the IATA ONE Record pilot to showcase the benefits and feasibility of the initiative.

The ONE Record project 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. This standardizes the data exchange protocol in the air cargo industry and provides added benefits of better data quality, control, transparency, and ease of connectivity.

By further collaborating and leveraging new technologies, all three companies were able to achieve the first phase milestones – and support future development in the air cargo supply chain. These include the development of a respective ONE Record server by Qatar Airways Cargo and CHAMP, ONE Record server integration, data model alignment based on IATA guidelines, a customized security layer adoption, and exchange of AWB data between both servers. This phase of the pilot kicked off in February 2020 and was completed in September 2020.
