CHAMP Cargosystems team wins at IATA ONE Record Hackathon 2022

A team comprised of CHAMP Cargosystems professionals won two awards at this year’s IATA ONE Record Hackathon. The event, hosted by the Internation Air Transport Association (IATA), was hosted at Startup Village in Amsterdam, 20-22 May 2022. The team, named CHAMPorado, won the event‘s most prestigious “ONE Record Prize”, which is awarded to the solution that made the best use of the ONE Record API in terms of innovation and creativity.

All teams were asked to build solutions to enhance cargo products using the ONE Record Data Sharing standard by multimodal means. The hosts asked the teams to address at least one of the related challenges by using at least one of the APIs available at the event.

CHAMPorado’s “Express Pick up” solution consisted of CHAMP Cargospot Mobile app and web portal that jointly enable a paperless process to compose and schedule pickup time and orders, and manage door assignment for truckers while integrating a queue management system to optimize the flow around the warehouse, leading to substantial efficiency gains and cost savings. The team was also awarded the prize for “Most Diverse Team”.

“It’s essential to bring industry partners together through events like these Hackathons and to have CHAMP represented by these highly engaged experts and engineers added diversity, inspiration, and true competition to all other teams,” says Henk Mulder, Head, Digital Cargo at IATA. “As our industry inches forwards in its efforts for full digital transformation, with people like the CHAMPorado team, I know we’re in very good hands.”

“We are very proud of the passion and commitment demonstrated by both our CHAMP teams at the IATA ONE Record Hackathon,” says Chris McDermott, CEO at CHAMP Cargosystems. “The Express Pick up project is testament to the ingenuity and speed that new features and functionalities could be introduced to our own Cargospot Mobile app.”

“CHAMP would like to give a special thanks to all those who joined the Hackathon, as well as the tireless work of the individuals turning around innovative ideas and solutions in record-breaking time.”
