IATA Cargo 2000 Relaunched as Cargo iQ

Cargo 2000 (C2K) was officially rebranded as Cargo iQ on 16 March 2016.

Cargo iQ stands for collaboration, trust, quality, reliability, and innovation. Its vision is to continuously improve the value of airfreight for the stakeholders, by providing the end-to-end standard process and quality management through industry collaboration.

The rebrand is part of a strategic transformation programme, which has seen the 82-member IATA specialist interest group embark on a Smart Data Project, as well as a new audit and certification scheme. Cargo iQ operates as a not-for-profit membership group supported by IATA and composed of 82 members including: airlines, freight forwarders, ground-handling agents, trucking companies and IT solution providers globally.

Ten million airport-to-airport and 5.5 million door-to-door shipments were measured by Cargo iQ in 2015, enabling members to take action to improve and standardize internal processes by identifying where quality was an issue. By speaking the same language, Cargo iQ members are also able to follow best practices and define common processes with industry partners in the supply chain.

According to the 2016 roadmap of Cargo iQ, the group will implement a new audit and certification scheme, which is focused on giving the Cargo iQ Quality Management System Certification higher international recognition.
