ORFEUS in production between DB Cargo DE and CD Cargo

Frankfurt / Prague, 28th November 2016

The bilateral consignment notes data exchange between DB Cargo Deutschland and CD Cargo migrated to ORFEUS on 28th November 2016. Order management systems of both companies exchange CIM and CUV notes data via central ORFEUS broker using the ECN message format. In the first step, only the PCN flow is used so the data are sent in parallel to paper notes. But since the flow is technically similar to the ECN flow, the system pre-conditions for future paperless transports are ready. Both companies agreed to continue the project in early 2017 with formal agreeement to allow for electronic consignment notes.
