Qatar Airways Cargo implements IATA Cargo XML Messaging

Posted 14 September 2016 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways Cargo becomes the first carrier to fully adopt, implement and integrate the next generation messaging standard, Cargo Extensible Mark-up Language or Cargo-XML in its core cargo management system, CROAMIS.

The Cargo-XML messaging is an initiative mandated by International Air Transport Association (IATA) as a preferred standard for electronic communication between airlines and other air cargo stakeholders such as shippers, freight forwarders, ground-handling agents, regulators, as well as customs and security agencies.

Cargo-XML is recognised as the universal language for improving e-commerce, and therefore facilitates growth in trade and encourages participation in global commerce through electronic data submission for all air cargo shipments.

Qatar Airways Cargo is already at the forefront, collaborating with IATA on other such initiatives.
