Cathay carries out One Record pilot

[ April 27, 2021   //   ]

Cathay Pacific Cargo says it has carried out a successful pilot of IATA’s ONE Record that creates a single[1] view of shipments that can be shared by all stakeholders. The scheme aims to create end-to-end transparency of consignments as they pass through multiple links in the chain from shipper to agent, airline, warehouse and statutory authorities such as customs, all following IATA’s protocols for APIs – the interface that enables users to connect to the system – security and data sharing.

The pilot, which ran in Hong Kong in March, was a joint initiative between airline and the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) and enabled stakeholders to view shipment data over a two-day period.

The participating freight forwarders included Sinotrans, Soonest Express and DHL, which all used a platform developed by Global Logistics System.
