Cargo XML Messaging and Standards

Learn how to implement Cargo-XML messaging at your organization and improve electronic communications!

Cargo-XML is a new standard developed by IATA and aims to facilitate cargo business processes, fulfill regulatory requirements for Advance Electronic Information (AEI), and comply with security regulations like Electronic Consignment Security Declaration (e-CSD).

During this course you will analyze how Cargo-XML standards improve information exchange both within a company and between different stakeholders, such as shippers, freight forwards, ground handlers, airlines, regulators, and customs and security agencies. Using the IATA Cargo-XML manual and toolkit, learn how to implement Cargo-XML within your organization and how to convert between Cargo-XML and Cargo-IMP.
