CARGO IQ EMBRACES DATA SHARING AND TARGETS SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSPARENCY WITH 2023 STRATEGY


The organization to develop an app for truckers and to bring enhanced data analytics to members to drive quality and visibility in air cargo transportation

London, UK, Wednesday 28th September 2022: Cross-stakeholder air cargo organization Cargo iQ has announced its objectives for 2023 and its renewed strategy at a special 25th anniversary press conference held at the IATA World Cargo Symposium (WCS) in London, UK, today.

The organization’s key projects for next year include the development of an app for truckers and enhanced data analytics for members, Cargo iQ Executive Director Lothar Moehle, Cargo iQ Chair Henrik Ambak, and Vice-Chair Kerstin Strauss told attendees.

Further plans include the relaunch of a sub-working group to focus on door-to-door shipment specifications to enhance the CDMP (cargo data management platform) to include shipments where the forwarder at the import station differs from the forwarder at the export station.

The development of a Care Protocol is also on the agenda, to bring the industry more visibility and control over the conditions under which a shipment is moved.

“Cargo iQ has made great strides towards our collective goal for a quality-driven global supply chain in 2022 and we are dedicated to maintaining this momentum towards a seamless and transparent supply chain with our focus areas for 2023,” said Moehle.

Plans to drive data analytics for members include analysing and sharing data from reports and encouraging members to use the air cargo information hub to better understand and mitigate service failures.

Using the learnings from the road feeder services (RFS) pilot currently underway, Cargo iQ will develop an app to make key data available to truckers to bring visibility to the road transport of airfreight.

Possible investment into the set-up of the Care Protocol as a separate server or integration into the ENCORE platform is planned to bring more control over shipment conditions.

It was also announced on day one of the WCS that Cargo iQ is joining IATA’s Future Air Cargo Executive Summit (FACES) programme, to join the effort to foster innovative thinking and prepare the next generation of leaders for the air cargo industry.

“In 2022 the Cargo iQ community has already made significant progress, with new members, new training, new MOP milestones and a road freight pilot,” said Henrik Ambak, SVP Cargo Operations Worldwide, Emirates.

“We have many plans already in the pipeline to continue this good work next year and bring the benefits of data sharing, digitalization, and collaboration to the global air cargo sector.”

Ongoing elements of Cargo iQ’s strategy include the aim to achieve 100% reporting and to drive full implementation by members of Cargo iQ processes.

In order to achieve 100% reporting, the focus for Cargo iQ activities next year will include the RFS sub-working group, ENCORE updates to benefit ground handlers, as well as auditing and direct work to assist members with implementation efforts.

“Our work this year is proof that collaboration is key to achieving real change as an industry and that Cargo iQ is a vital platform for achieving that collaboration,” said Kerstin Strauss, VP Global Air Logistics Operations, Kuehne + Nagel.

Cargo iQ has been developing solutions for quality in the supply chain for 25 years and you can view their 25th anniversary video here.

About Cargo iQ

Cargo iQ is a cross-stakeholder organization working to create and implement quality standards aimed at enhancing the customer service experience of the worldwide air cargo industry.

Originally founded by leading airlines and forwarders to improve reliability in the supply chain, Cargo iQ membership has grown to include more than 60 members from across the supply chain during its 25 years of operation, which it celebrates in 2022.

Global Cargo iQ membership now includes airlines, freight forwarders, ground handling agents, IT solution providers, Road Feeder Services (RFS), and, most recently, small- to medium-sized enterprise (SME) forwarders.

Operating as an independent, not-for-profit group, members work together to develop a system of shipment planning and performance monitoring for air cargo based on common business processes and milestones.

Members are externally audited at regular intervals for quality compliance as proof of their continuous improvement and commitment to delivering quality-driven services and supporting real-time service delivery.

As part of that system, the Cargo iQ Master Operating Plan (MOP), which has been endorsed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), defines the standard end-to-end process of transporting air cargo.

The organization is supported by IATA as one of its interest groups.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
