  • Why is IATA not publishing the TACT Tariffs in book form anymore?
    • While the TACT Tariff Manuals have been a standard reference for the industry, the nature of a paper-based product no longer makes it a suitable option in the rapidly changing cargo world, increased digital operations and CO2 efficient solutions. The pandemic has also demonstrated that physical products can be difficult to distribute while online access remains available at all times. Recognizing the environmental impact of creating and distributing globally the TACT Tariff manuals, IATA has made the decision to stop the production of the TACT Tariff Manuals (North America and Worldwide) as of the October 2021 Edition.
  • As a TACT Tariffs and Rules Manual customer, what will I receive in October 2021?
    • You will receive the TACT Rules Manual, October Edition.
  • I have not received my free access to TACT Online, what do I do?
    • TACT Tariffs and Rules Manual customers will automatically receive an email with login instructions. If you have not received an email with login instruction by end of June 2021, please contact us here.
  • Will the TACT Rules Manual also be stopped?
    • No, at this time the TACT Rules Manual will not be stopped. IATA continues to review the best options for delivering critical TACT and air cargo operational information to its users and therefore the TACT Rules Manual, its content and delivery cycle may be adjusted in the future.
  • How can I access TACT Tariffs now that the TACT Tariff Manuals are no longer published in paper format?
    • TACT Tariffs are available via multiple product options, our recommended solution is TACT Online. For integration in Cargo or rates management systems we also offer TACT Tariffs in data format or via API.
  • Will my subscription change for 2022?
    • Yes, since the TACT Full set product is no longer sold in 2022, please note the following for your TACT subscription:
      • We kindly request you to let us know what TACT product option you wish to use in 2022 here
      • If you have not informed us of your preferred TACT option by October 31st, 2021, IATA will automatically switch your subscription to a 3-user TACT Online subscription
  • What will I be paying for my TACT subscription in 2022?
    • The cost of your TACT subscription in 2022 will depend on which products you use and how many users will be part of your subscription. As we have tiered pricing for TACT Online, this too will impact the costs to you: the more users the more discount you get.
