What is an Interchange Format?

An interchange format is a standardized format for exchanging information between different computer systems. In the context of shipping, an interchange format could refer to a format for exchanging data about cargo between different transportation carriers, such as a format for sharing information about a container’s contents, weight, dimensions, and destination. Standardizing the format of this information allows carriers to share data more easily and accurately, reducing the risk of errors or miscommunications.
