StB Cargo

Make air cargo easier, smarter and faster

Simplifying the Business (StB) Cargo is the IATA Cargo Transformation program. From old-fashioned paper-based processes to lack of transparency, customers and partners face pain points throughout the cargo journey. Our challenge, therefore, is to increase the efficiency and service quality of air cargo. For a quick summary, check out the introduction to StB Cargo (pdf).

6 StB Cargo projects to strengthen today

  1. e-freight & e-AWB
  2. ONE Record
  3. Interactive Cargo
  4. Smart Facility
  5. ACID - Air Cargo Incident Database
  6. Cargo Connect


An Innovation stream to build tomorrow

StB Cargo program aims also at fostering longer-term innovation for the benefit of the IATA member airlines and the air cargo industry as a whole through:

  • StB Cargo white papers aim at informing our Member airlines concisely about a complex issue and presenting IATA's positions and recommendations on the matter. – white papers expected in 2017 will cover topics such as: e-Commerce Logistics and Drones for tomorrow's air cargo
  • Innovation awards
  • Innovation events, such as Horizon, the IATA Air Cargo Innovation forum, organized with the annual World Cargo Symposium 
  • Innovation groups, such as FACE (Future Air Cargo Executives)
