DCSA Track & Trace standards updated

The Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA) has released version 2.1 of its Track & Trace Interface Standards for customer-facing T&T events, with updates to key terms and attributes based on feedback received by its shipping company membership while initially rolling out the standards with customers.

The new version of the standards also updates the associated API definitions and reference implementation, along with all accompanying documents including the DCSA Industry Blueprint 3.0, Information Model 3.2, and the web glossary of terms.

DCSA says that everyone currently using the T&T standard should now switch to v2.1 to stay up to date. The latest API definitions can be downloaded from SwaggerHub and the new reference implementation is available on GitHub.

DCSA is a neutral, non-profit group founded by major ocean carriers to digitise the container shipping industry, creating open-source standards based on input from its membership including MSC, Maersk, CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd, ONE, Evergreen, Yang Ming, HMM and ZIM.
