e-Air Waybill (e-AWB)
An industry initiative
Developed collaboratively with industry stakeholders, the e-Air Waybill (e-AWB) removes the requirement for a paper Air Waybill (AWB).
It has been recognized as one of the two priorities of the Global Air Cargo Advisory Group (GACAG) and endorsed by FIATA:
e-AWB targets & scorecards
- 20% e-AWB by end of 2013
- 50% e-AWB by end of 2014
- 100% e-AWB by end of 2015

A win-win project
With the e-AWB, there is no longer a need to print, handle or archive paper AWBs. e-AWB brings accuracy, confidentiality and efficiency. It helps reducing operational costs and speeding-up the delivery of air freight shipments - for example, there will no longer be delays due to the paper AWB being misplaced or lost.
See our e-AWB case studies and find out the benefits of e-AWB for Cathay Pacific in Hong Kong and a large freight forwarder.
The new IATA Multilateral e-AWB Agreement provides a single standard agreement that airlines and freight forwarders can sign once with IATA to enter into e-AWB agreements with all parties, without having to sign numerous bilateral agreements.
