At this year’s transport logistic trade fair in Munich, Lufthansa Cargo, and CHAMP Cargosystems have announced to actively drive the transition towards ONE Record. To support the widespread adoption of modern data sharing, both companies commit to implementing the ONE Record standard within their respective IT infrastructures as a basis for interchanging data via 1R in the future.
As a first step to modernizing the industry’s data exchange infrastructure, both companies plan to provide an open, ONE Record-based shipment tracking API later this year. 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.
“Data is crucial to our industry’s success, but we have been hindered by outdated data formats and legacy infrastructure for too long.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 revolutionize the way we share information. It opens the door for a fundamental production optimization based on high-quality data sharing,” said Ashwin Bhat, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo.
“CHAMP is committed to accelerating the adoption of IATA ONE Record across the transportation industry worldwide,” says Chris McDermott, CEO of CHAMP Cargosystems. “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.”
Lufthansa Cargo and CHAMP encourage all partners and customers of the supply chain to join this journey toward modernizing the transportation industry.
