Cargo 2000

Cargo 2000 (C2K) is an airfreight management system developed jointly by industry and the International Air Transport Association (IATA). C2K defines specific performance metrics for the transportation of goods by air transport. C2K specifies how performance data is to be collected and provides information standards for the integration of these data into company performance measurement, monitoring and reporting systems.

The key benefit of the Cargo 2000 standard is the visibility to actual shipment statuses that the system provides. Companies that have implemented Cargo 200 are able to see where their goods are at any time during the shipment process. As Figure 14 following indicates, Cargo 2000 accomplishes this by allowing companies to observe where a shipment is in near real time and use this information to forward plan their downstream operations. This integrated process, although not fully implemented by partners, has the potential of streamlining planning and re-planning activities while enhancing customer responsiveness to unplanned
shipment delays.

According to IATA, the main objectives of Cargo 2000 are (IATA, Cargo 2000)
- Achieving transparency and visibility of the actual freight movement for the customer by applying C2K measurement of milestones and alert setting procedures during transportation;
- Improving internal processes to enhance service delivery by using the C2K milestone measurement and alert system as well as applying the C2K Quality Management System;
- Achieving recognition of adherence to C2K quality standards through structured auditing procedure and certification;
- Comprehensive reporting on compliance with harmonized C2K standards/milestones and selected KPI’s including benchmarking of performances within the industry;
- Gaining experience from knowledge and best practices of the C2K member organization in finding solutions for existing and future challenges to improve transportation performance;
- Getting access to comprehensive documentation of proven procedures and specifications of C2K processes and quality standards to measure and benchmark supply chain performance;
- Supporting and facilitating the alignment with new developments in the industry by harmonizing standards, procedures and business rules within C2K.

The plan for achieving these objectives through the development and deployment of the Cargo 2000 standard is split into three distinct phases. The first phase of implementation involves organizations integrating their internal track and trace systems with airline information systems to obtain airport-to-airport tracking of goods. The second phase of implementation involves the integration of inbound transport operations and outbound delivery operations with the airport-to-airport tracking activities. This allows phase two partners to gain door-todoor visibility of their shipments. The final phase of implementation increases the granularity of the tracking process so that individual items can be tracked through the entire shipment process. Implementation of this final phase will provide shipping companies and shippers the ability to not only track goods through the supply chain, but pro-actively plan and verify their delivery.
