e-AWB Progress in 2014

European ground handlers voice

During the month of June, IATA surveyed Ground handlers (GHAs) based in Europe to determine the current e-AWB capabilities amongst GHAs. The survey had a  response rate of 66%. The results highlighted that GHAs have an overall good understanding of e-AWB  and 55% are capable of doing e-AWB with their business partners. Half of the GHA's that declared that they are e-AWB capable (55%) have implemented the e-AWB single process. IATA strongly encourages continued collaboration between GHAs, airlines and Freight Forwarders to benefit from efficient cargo operations.

 

Why you should consider implementing Single Process

"Single Process" makes e-AWB adoption smoother for freight forwarders since they never need to deliver a paper AWB to the airline, even on trade lanes where a paper AWB is requested. A growing number of freight forwarders only accept to establish a worldwide e-AWB roll-out program with airlines who are offering the single process.

What are the benefits?

  • Simplifies e-AWB adoption for freight forwarders
  • Gives airlines control of the decision to use a paper or an e-AWB to comply with regulatory requirements

 How to implement it?

  • Create a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Single Process
  • If you are handled by a GHA, include it as part of the Ground Handling Agreement
  • Implement ECC and ECP in your cargo system
