CARGO IQ LAUNCHES PILOT TO CLOSE THE ROAD FREIGHT VISIBILITY GAP


The study will trial Cargo iQ’s new Road Feeder Services messaging standards, which aim to close the communication gap between trucking companies and airlines during the road transport of airfreight

Geneva, Switzerland, Wednesday 6th July 2022Cross-stakeholder organization Cargo iQ has initiated a pilot study to enhance shipment visibility and increase speed in the road freight segment of an air cargo shipment’s journey, with Emirates Airlines, Jan de Rijk, and software company CargoHub co-operating for the trial.

The pilot will test new Cargo iQ Road Feeder Services (RFS) specifications for practicality, ensuring that the message standards to be exchanged between CargoHub, the trucking company and the airline work in practice.

The main objective of the pilot is to close the communication gap between the truck driver, the trucking company’s head office, and the airline.

“Cargo iQ is setting the milestone requirements for status updates, indicating which messages the trucking companies have to send, and CargoHub will standardize the content of the messages by ‘translating’ it for the airlines,” said Lothar Moehle, Executive Director, Cargo iQ.

“Ultimately, the RFS specification will be integrated into the Cargo iQ Master Operating Plan and the potential IT service solutions will be standardized to fit the Cargo iQ requirements, allowing members to choose one of the potential providers.”

Pilot participant CargoHub is providing the Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) platform, which provides transparent and predictable information on truck movements to handling agents and/or airlines and provides capacity and cargo availability information to trucking companies.

Truck movement information includes all air shipment data relating to trucking planning information and start and end loading and unloading dates and times.

“The goal is to minimize loading and unloading times, thus increasing the speed of air cargo transportation by road,” said Raoul Paul, Chief Executive Officer, CargoHub.

“At the same time, airlines will benefit from end-to-end supply chain visibility of air cargo shipments subjected to road transport.

“Our team has worked hard over the past two years to build an innovative platform based on the latest technologies to provide end-to-end digital logistics and transport supply chain visibility.”

With the creation of the data model to ease communication between the trucking CDM platform and the airlines, all stakeholders involved in the transport of an air freight shipment can plan and monitor the transportation status of their shipments combined with all related truck movement information, whether messaging or API technology is being used.

Emirates Airlines is also part of the collaborative effort to standardize operational status updates for air cargo carried on trucks.

“We recognized that not all trucking companies have equal system capabilities and to make the standards openly available and attractive to use for all truckers, we had to provide an easy way for all to participate,” said Laurent Lebouille, Chair of the Cargo iQ RFS sub working group and Manager Process, Planning and Project Delivery at SkyCargo, Emirates Airlines.

“That meant we had to find software-as-a-service companies that could deliver the kind of status updates in the formats that we were looking for from an industry perspective.

“After a collaborative extensive market search, we found several providers that offered the kind of services that are needed to support the smaller trucking providers without their own system.

“Now we just have to show that it is possible in practice.”

CargoHub, Emirates Airlines, and Jan de Rijk are currently performing various air cargo shipment scenarios with live shipments carried on trucks, with a second pilot to include additional participants already in the planning.

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.
