Six teams won a prize at IATA’s latest ONE Record Hackathon event which brings together teams of developers to work on innovative solutions that address an industry challenge.

This year’s event was held in Frankfurt and hosted by Lufthansa Cargo, with 20 teams working around the clock to develop a solution that utilises the ONE Record data sharing standard.

Brendan Sullivan, IATA global head of cargo, said: “The hackathon is a dynamic platform for digital experts across the industry to develop innovative solutions, that will help strengthen the air cargo supply chain.

“IATA is committed to fostering innovation and creating a more efficient and sustainable aviation industry. We congratulate the winners and participants.”

The winning projects were:

• The Carbulator by Riege Software
The solution addresses the challenge of invisible CO₂ emissions in air cargo planning. By enriching flight options with CO₂ emissions data using the ONE Record data model, decision-makers can make more sustainable choices.

• NE:ONE Play by Digitales Testfeld Air Cargo – DTAC
NE:ONE Play is a user-friendly whiteboard app that simplifies ONE Record data. It allows viewing, editing, and troubleshooting of data, making it accessible and easy to reach. It features an infinite canvas, connection to any ONE Record server, live editing, error detection, tooltips, and dark mode.

• ONE Record Crew by Lufthansa Industry Solutions (the first all-female hackathon team)
ONE Record Crew is a solution developed to solve cargo irregularities that disrupt transportation. The solution combines machine learning and ONE Record to predict and address issues, bringing transparency, customer satisfaction, and sustainability to the cargo industry.

• Switcargo by Air France KLM Martinair Cargo Team
SWITCARGO was developed as a solution to facilitate the transition to ONE Record. It enables airlines to execute shipments with partners using both ONE Record and other types of messaging.

• CargoTracking by Awery Aviation Software Team
CargoTracking.aero was developed to bridge the gap between Cargo iQ members and non-members, improving information sharing and real-time updates for enhanced planning and control.

• Borderless Digital Salmon Movement by Vediafi Oy team
Borderless Digital Salmon Movement was developed to simplify cross-border transportation of time-sensitive goods. BDI nodes facilitate information exchange between transportation
companies and border crossings, ensuring freshness and efficient passage.

Vitaly Smilianets, chief executive of Awery, one of the winning teams, said: “Our solution is open source, and we truly believe it could develop quickly once implemented by the air cargo community, speeding up the adoption of the ONE Record standard across the whole industry.

“We are proud to have the opportunity to work on a common modern standard for the air cargo sector.

“What we have created in 28 hours of continuous brainstorming and work is an impressive start, and we will continue to develop this moving forward.”

Next year’s ONE Record Hackathon will be held in Doha, hosted by Qatar Airways Cargo.
