IATA Priority One Record

Brendan Sullivan, Marie Owens Thomsen

     Brendan Sullivan, International Air Transport Association (IATA) Global Head of Cargo pictured here far left with the people that brought IATA World Cargo Symposium to Hong Kong, led the charge Tuesday March 12 where the news was as big as the audience itself.
     “We can report that more than 1,900 people, a record number of delegates are here for our conference!” a jubilant Mr. Sullivan reported.
     “Adoption of ONE Record is a priority,” Mr. Sullivan said right away.
     ONE Record is a standard for data sharing and creates a single record view of the shipment defining a common data model that is shared via standardized and secured web API. The standard is based on mature but progressive data sharing technologies that are well aligned with the best practices used by leading airlines. This means ONE Record is directly accessible to IT teams and service providers.
     “The journey to digital cargo is challenging but IATA’s ambition is clear,” Mr. Sullivan said.
     “Digital, digital, digital!”
     “Our commitment to sustainability is unwavering,“ Brendan Sullivan insisted.
     “There is no shortage of demand for SAF, the challenge is supply.”
     Looking ahead Mr. Sullivan said:
     “IATA is developing CO2 connect program.
     “Most importantly, people are at the core of air cargo and everything we do.
     “Being constant toward objectives is not easy,” Brendan said, “but we will never waver!”
     Marie Owens Thomsen, IATA SVP Sustainability and Senior Economist at the opening arrived in Hong Kong with an impressive set of charts that illustrated a positive industry view.
     “Global GDP growth remains at 3% with unemployment rates at or near historic lows,” the lady said.
     “Our industry has made an impressive financial recovery,” the economist noted.
     “Cargo is back at 12% of total revenue.
     “Revenue growth driven by passenger segment and cargo is well on the way to going back to pre-pandemic equilibrium,” Ms. Thomsen said, adding:
     “On the whole air fares are not increasing above inflation.”
