Full integration of Iata's cargo-XML in the WCO CTS
The International Air Transport Association (Iata) and the World Customs Organization (WCO) announced that Iata's cargo-XML messaging standard has been fully integrated into WCO's cargo targeting system (WCO CTS), a risk assessment tool available to WCO member countries worldwide.
This enables electronic communication between airlines and customs authorities using the same standards format and will make communication simpler and more effective.
Iata director general and CEO Alexandre de Juniac: "Simplifying processes, enhancing efficiency and maximizing safety and security are in everybody's interest - shippers, border authorities and airlines. The integration of cargo-XML into WCO CTS is the latest example of the positive results that can be achieved." (ah)
