DCSA Publishes Load Track & Trace Standards containerized

They can be downloaded freely from the website association

The Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA), an organization non-profit that was established last year with the purpose speeding up the process of digitizing transport containerized shipping and which to date has nine of the Eleven shipping companies in the industry, has published a set of procedures and standards for tracking and monitoring of containerized loads. The association specified that these standards can be implemented by shipping carriers, shippers and third parties in order to allow tracking of containerized shipments moved by different sea carriers. DCSA also stated that this is the association's first initiative, which aims to transform inefficient procedures and speed up digitisation through a joint effort by the shipping industry containerized.

The Track and Trace standard developed by DCSA includes a information model and interface standards that can be freely downloaded from the association's website. The standards developed by DCSA are aligned with those of United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) that are intended to provide a global framework that preserves the investments made and rationalizes exchange of data and information between all participants in the supply chain.

"Because DCSA standards are neutral technology and suppliers - pointed out the chairman André Simha, who is global chief digital & information officer of the MSC shipping group - today any organization that offers its customers information about the shipment tracking will benefit from adoption our Track & Trace standard because it will simplify data integration with shipping carriers and will improve quality of information.'

THE associates of DCSA are, in descending order as to capacity of their fleets, Shipping Maersk Line, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express (ONE), Evergreen Line, Yang Ming Line, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) and ZIM.
