September 10, 2020: The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has launched IATA ONE Source, an online search engine platform which helps the air cargo industry to find the right business partner for their needs, from specific infrastructure requirements such as temperature-controlled rooms to IATA certifications and right services, where they need them.

ONE Source lists the latest operational information on airlines, airports, cargo handling facilities, freight forwarders, ground handlers, shippers, and trucking companies. All critical information contained on ONE Source has been verified by IATA to help ensure its accuracy. IATA ONE Source is free for all service providers across the air cargo supply chain.

Glyn Hughes, global head, cargo, IATA, said, “With over 3,500 differently sized cargo handling facilities worldwide, the industry until now has lacked visibility on the capacities and services these facilities can offer. The need for transparency is even more critical in the current context. ONE Source addresses this by providing a single reference point for up-to-date infrastructure and certification data, helping save time and keep air cargo moving,” said.

The ONE Source platform offers
1. Up-to-date certification and infrastructure data
2. Information per aviation service provider type allowing direct capability comparison
3. ONE Source API providing a direct data feed to company systems
4. Increased audit efficiency by complementing risk analysis data for a more accurate evaluation of auditing needs
5. Reduced audit complexity, focused on Unique Selling Points and security aspects
6. Details on IATA Certifications: CEIV Pharma, CEIV Live Animals, CEIV Fresh, Smart Facility, Operational Capacity, IATA Environmental Assessment (IEnvA), United for Wildlife

ONE Source is part of the IATA Smart Facility program, an initiative to create transparency in cargo handling services and enhance essential cargo operational capabilities to a consistently higher baseline level across the industry.
