Cargo iQ successfully trials new SME solution for independent freight forwarders


Small and medium sized forwarders working with Cargo iQ carriers are set to benefit from air cargo shipment planning and operational visibility

Singapore, Wednesday 13th March 2019 – Cargo iQ has successfully trialled a new Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Solution to provide vastly improved planning and control options to small and medium sized forwarders who work with member airlines on a small-scale, or regional basis.

The SME Solution will enable a Route Map and status updates to be made available to the forwarder for individual consignments in line with the common business practices and milestones set out in Cargo iQ’s Master Operating Plan (MOP).

Cargo iQ members developed the MOP as a system of clearly defined common business processes.

“With Cargo iQ SME, we provide a turn-key solution for independent freight forwarders to benefit from shipment planning and control through shared Route Maps and operational visibility for various milestones along the shipment lifecycle,” said Chris Davies, Manager Product and Technology, at Cargo iQ.

“Cargo iQ’s members work together to continuously improve the value of airfreight for customers, and, by expanding our Solutions Portfolio, we are opening the door to a wider section of the air cargo industry.”

After registering with an accredited Cargo iQ SME IT Service Provider, forwarders can benefit from Cargo iQ performance management tools straight away.

The SME Solution trial started with CCS Italy, using Riege Software’s back-end Cargo Data Management Platform (CDMP) technology. 

CCS Italy specialises in innovative, value-added IT solutions for freight forwarders, air cargo carriers, and ground handling agents.

“Taking part in Cargo iQ’s SME Solution trial is a great opportunity for CCS Italy to demonstrate how independent freight forwarders can work with air cargo carriers to benefit the overall air cargo industry,” said Gianni Mauri, Senior Consultant, CCS Italy.

Riege Software specialises in Cloud-based software solutions for the cargo industry.

“We always put our focus on scalability, to serve customers from the smallest to the largest on the same high technological level,” said Christian Riege, Managing Director, Riege Software.

“To expand this approach to IATA’s Cargo iQ initiative targeting SMEs was an extra stimulus – with the awesome outcome of facilitating SMEs access to Cargo iQ.”

An official launch date for SME will be announced in the coming months, following an evaluation of the trial phase.

Forwarders that join the SME portal will also have the option to apply for full Cargo iQ membership to benefit from additional performance reporting, benchmarking, collaboration, and insights.

“Upgrading allows smaller freight forwarders to put the Cargo iQ stamp of approval next to their names after a vigorous audit and certification program, and provides access to other tools, such as our member-only Door-to-Door Performance Management System,” said Davies.

The Door-to-Door (D2D) Solution allows Cargo iQ members to measure the movement of freight from shipper to consignee, and has also been developed based on the MOP.

D2D provides implementable business rules and use cases to track and measure shipments, operational visibility in real time on an individual House Air Waybill (HAWB) basis, as well as comprehensive metrics on pick-up and delivery performance.

All route map data for D2D is provided by Cargo iQ to generate analytics, which is then reported to members in Cargo iQ’s Air Cargo Intelligence Hub.

About Cargo iQ

Cargo iQ is an IATA interest group with the mission of creating and implementing quality standards for the worldwide air cargo industry.

Cargo iQ operates as a not-for-profit membership group supported by IATA and composed of over 80 major airlines, freight forwarders, ground-handling agents, trucking companies and IT solution providers globally.

Cargo iQ members developed a system of shipment planning and performance monitoring for air cargo based on common business processes and milestones.

As part of that system, the Cargo iQ Master Operating Plan (MOP), which has been endorsed by IATA as a recommended industry practice, describes the standard end-to-end process of transporting air cargo.

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.
