The Electronic Airway Bill (eAWB)
The Electronic Airway Bill for Carriers, Forwarders & Ground Handling Agents (GHAs)
There is no question that the electronic Airway Bill (eAWB) is one of the most important steps that companies in the air cargo industry can take to upgrade their business and rise above operational and compliance-related challenges.
What is the eAWB?
The electronic airway bill is the digital form of a paper Airway Bill (AWB). All of the information contained within a physical form is included digitally. The electronic format is the foundation for adding further digital processes in the air cargo supply chain and increasing overall efficiency as a result.
With the eAWB in place, air carriers, freight forwarders and Ground Handling Agents (GHAs) can derive a significant competitive advantage. How a company implements the eAWB is critical. Businesses require a Simpler, Faster & Better solution to maximize the potential benefits of the initiative and realize added value.
