DCSA publishes release 1.2 of Track & Trace Interface standards
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, May 14, 2020 – Release 1.2 of the Track & Trace Interface Standards for customer-facing track and trace events now includes a push model for data distribution. This feature allows customers to subscribe to updates and have updated Track & Trace data sent to them, making it even easier to track the location of their cargo.
In addition, Interface Standards release 1.2 provides the following three updates:
– ‘Event Type’ has been added to ‘Event’ outputs. This parameter differentiates between event types, such as Shipment, Equipment, Transport and Transport Equipment.
– ‘Mode of Transport’ has been added to ‘Transport Event’ and ‘Transport Equipment Event’ outputs.
– ‘Booking Reference’ as an identifier for shipment(s) has changed to be optional in ‘Event’ outputs.
In late May/early June, Track & Trace API definitions reflecting these changes will be published on Swaggerhub.
