New element cargoAircraftOnly is added –
The element cargoAircraftOnly value when set boolean True, specifies cargo aircraft as the mode of shipment transportation for Dangerous Goods. The default value of this element is set to False.

Feb 19, 2022 Change Log:

  • New object soldTo is added to the request:
    The soldTo object will indicate the party responsible for purchasing the goods shipped from the shipper to the recipient. The Sold to party is not necessarily the recipient or the importer of record. The Sold to party is relevant when the purchaser, rather than the recipient determines when certain customs regulations apply.
  • In shipper/contacts object now either personName or companyName is required and not the both. An error will be returned if both personName and CompanyName are blank or not provided in the request.
