Quality management system for the worldwide air cargo industry
Cargo 2000 (C2K) is a self-funded, IATA sponsored interest group of major airlines and freight forwarders. With the unique goal of implementing a world-wide quality management system for air cargo, Cargo 2000 aims at changing the way the air cargo industry manages quality.
Cargo 2000 consists of a group of 78 major airlines, freight forwarders, ground handlers, trucking companies and IT providers. Its members are implementing re-engineered air cargo transportation processes from shipper to consignee using Cargo's 2000's Master Operating Plan.
This sits at the heart of an industry-wide process control and reporting system that drives data management and corrective action systems. By more than halving the number of individual processes in the air cargo supply chain to just 19, Cargo 2000 is less labor intensive and improves the process for managing shipments in a paperless environment. It substantially reduces time spent managing irregularities, such as service failures, cuts the time required for manual track and trace procedures and leads to a reduction in service recovery costs.
Cargo2000 is a key pillar of the E-freight program.
