Cargo XML Task Force (CXMLTF)


The primary objective of the Cargo XML Task Force is to provide recommendations to the Cargo Business Processes Panel (CBPP) on XML requirements for transportation messages. 

The Task Force is also responsible for the maintenance of the standards and to oversee the technical development of these XML messages, which will be based as much as possible on existing messages (e.g. CIMP. IFTMIN) and international standards (i.e. UN/CEFACT Core Components and XML Naming and Design Rules).


CXMLTF consists of 25 members from the air cargo supply chain including airlines, shippers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, customs brokers, international organizations, and service providers (as observers).
