1 Message Broker – Air Cargo Edition E-Commerce in the InterModal Transportation Environment Independent Consultant Cap Gemini Ernst & Young Presented By JOHN DALY Presented By JOHN DALY

2 Message Broker – Air Cargo Edition Current Trends  Integration of Cargo Transportation  Air, Sea, Road and Rail  Ever Increasing Automation  Fully Computerised Tracking  Faster Automated Clearance Systems  Increased Data Exchange  Requirement for Greater Interconnection Capability

3 Message Broker – Air Cargo Edition Some Complexities  New Functional Complexities  Increased Scope, Automation and Interconnection of cargo management operations, both internal and external  Inherited Complexities  Long lived cargo practices, formats and protocols  Future Complexities  The ever evolving Internet messaging revolution

4 Message Broker – Air Cargo Edition The InterModal Inheritance  IATA Formats  Cargo IMP, AHM Messages, SPEC-2000, AVNET etc.  Many Other Standards  EDIFACT, CARGOFACT, ANSI X.12 etc.  Structured and Unstructured Messages  Flat File Interchanges  Multiple Formats/Protocols  SITA, TRAXON, SMTP, ESMTP, FTP, HTTP, MIME etc.  Other Cargo Community Systems  Wireless Protocols  And NOW – XML  Proprietary Formats and Protocols

5 Message Broker – Air Cargo Edition Primary Integration Considerations  Must accommodate MultiModal Legacy Systems  In the immediate future, many of the different systems in use by the different parties involved in InterModal Transportation will have to be maintained.  There can be no question of suddenly introducing a single CrossModal set of standards.  Integration Solutions must be Flexible  Relatively easy Rules Based connection of new partners (possibly using strange formats/protocols) without the need for the new partners to change legacy systems.  Provision for transition to new formats, protocols and technologies as these evolve.  MUST AVOID SPAGHETTI SOFTWARE

6 Message Broker – Air Cargo Edition A Solution A Centralised Message Broker  A Message Broker is installed at each major Cargo Hub, for example by a Cargo Airline.  It is a Central computer system that accepts messages in different formats using different protocols from several different communications networks.  The Message Broker filters, reformats and duplicates messages as required and then routes them to their destinations in the appropriate (possibly different) format via the appropriate (and again possibly different) communications network.

7 Message Broker – Air Cargo Edition An Example - Cargolux A Message Broker Solution Message Broker, XML translator, specific developments Cargo Handling and Management Process (CHAMP)

8 Message Broker – Air Cargo Edition Message Security Issues  Growing Vulnerability  Networks becoming more “Open”  Limitations of Digital Signatures  Often cannot be passed from one format/protocol to another  Multiple Layered Security  Use the Security appropriate to each specific link  Focus more attention on Detection of Fraud rather than trying to achieve the impossible goal of 100% message security
