Stay ahead of competition with IATA CargoIS

For additional in-depth air cargo market intelligence insights, we invite you to explore IATA CargoIS. For over 20 years, IATA's CargoIS is the air cargo industry's premier market intelligence tool, used by the full range of air cargo stakeholders: airlines, general sales agents, freight forwarders, ground handlers, airports and many others!

CargoIS provides a true picture of market dynamics across more than 80,000 city-to-city unique trade lanes, reflecting the business of 30,000 freight forwarders and more than 200 airlines and GSAs. To achieve this, CargoIS sources its data from over 21 million air waybills settled every year through IATA’s Cargo Accounts Settlement System (CASS), as well as data contributed directly by airlines in CargoIS Direct Data (CDD). These two data sets represent US$ 32 billion worth of airfreight charges.

Because CargoIS is the only air cargo intelligence solution based on both actual settlement data and data directly contributed by airlines, it provides the most reliable and comprehensive market intelligence available today.

Please note as well that from now on, CargoIS will also be providing the CASS Route Analyzer services.
