CHAMP and Icelandair in PACT pilot for pre-load data transmission

CHAMP Cargosystems and Icelandair have transmitted messages in the pilot phase for Transport Canada’s PACT programme to send pre-load advance cargo information.
Using CHAMP’s TGS solution, the airline began sending messages in October 2018.
PACT, similar to the US Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS) programme, is a pre-load advance cargo information (PLACI) regulation pilot that involves air carriers submitting shipment information prior to loading so that data is assessed for security risk.
Nicholas Xenocostas, vice president, commercial & customer engagement at CHAMP Cargosystems, said: “Compliance and security will continue to grow in importance in the supply chain.
“CHAMP is proud to be a part of the PACT pilot. We are delighted that our long-time customer Icelandair Cargo could be an integral part of it.”
TGS is a platform that operates in a similar way to CHAMP’s Traxon Global Customs (TGC) service for pre-arrival filing for customs Advance Cargo Information schemes (ACI), currently supporting more than 55 countries worldwide.
TGS is designed to support multiple PLACI schemes from the same platform delivering a consistent and complete solution for security compliance.
“It is a natural progression to work with CHAMP Cargosystems in the PACT pilot,” said Bertel Ólafsson, cargo systems manager at Icelandair Cargo. “Having already implemented TGS for the respective PLACI scheme in the US ACAS, we know from experience that our security compliance is in good hands with such a user-friendly solution.”
In addition to TGS, Icelandair Cargo also benefits from CHAMP’s cargo management suite Cargospot, Traxon cargoHUB, Traxon Global Customs, and Traxon Quality to build the basis for commercial and operational processes, data sharing, and meeting customs compliance requirements.
