Alejandro Marquez, CPA  Consultant – Accounting & Financial Controls  …delivering systems solutions and consulting services that empower freight forwarders, terminal operators and 3PLs


CargoWise is the most widely used operating platform in the global freight forwarding market. However, with no native functionality to generate facturas compliant with SAT requirements, many CargoWise users in Mexico produce a proforma invoice and then spend extra time manually inputting data into PAC systems. Duplicate data entry is, of course, inefficient from a labor perspective. However, re-keying information also increases the probability that erroneous data might be transmitted to SAT, which results in more time spent correcting errors and potentially other problems.

ContPAQi is a leading software platform for accounting that complies with Mexican tax requirements. They provide PAC services to many industries, including a significant number of freight forwarders. INNOVALACIONES has developed a solution with ContPAQi to address the need that invoices, credit notes and remittance acknowledgements meet the electronic seal requirements of SAT. We now offer a commercially available integrated solution for CargoWise users in Mexico to comply with SAT requisitos y obligaciones.

Using CargoWise eAdapter and 3rd-party middleware, ODBC connections upload invoices, remittance acknowledgements and credit notes from CargoWise to ContPAQi where electronic seals are added, and the resulting files are then sent to SAT. Additionally, XML files are returned from ContPAQi and uploaded to CargoWise so that they are available in a single system and available for viewing alongside shipment records.

INNOVALACIONES is proud bring a proven and commercially available solution to CargoWise users in Mexico. Contact us at for more information and we can eliminate the re-keying of data associated with facturacion in a couple of weeks!
