Quality standards for smaller forwarders

[ March 15, 2019   //   ]

IATA quality standards group Cargo iQ has tested a new Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Solution for 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 system of clearly defined common business processes. The trial was carried out by CCS Italy, using Riege Software’s back-end Cargo Data Management Platform technology. An official launch date for SME will be announced in the coming months, following an evaluation of the trial phase.
