IATA platform to match shippers and suppliers

[ September 9, 2020   //   ]

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has launched the IATA ONE Source online platform to help the air cargo industry match shipping needs with available infrastructure and certifications of service providers.

It lists the latest operational information on airlines, airports, cargo handling facilities, freight forwarders, ground handlers, shippers, and trucking companies, with all critical verified by IATA. It is free for all service providers across the air cargo supply chain. 
IATA says the launch is particularly timely during the Covid crisis when shippers of medical supplies and pharmaceuticals need accurate information for time- and temperature-sensitive shipments.

ONE Source is part of the IATA Smart Facility program, an initiative to create transparency in cargo handling services and enhance operational capabilities across the industry.
