Dear Air Cargo Colleague,

In this issue of Cargo Tracker, you will find the latest news on the IATA Cargo agenda. We also alert our airline readers to the importance of allowing local forwarders to print AWBs on plain paper.

Finally, a new section, called "Offloading", appears in this edition of the Tracker newsletter . You are invited to offload your views on a subject of relevance to the air cargo industry. In this issue, it’s the environment.
