e-AWB

The Air Waybill (AWB) is a critical air cargo document that constitutes the contract of carriage between the “shipper” and the “carrier” (airline).

Electronic Air Waybill Resolution 672 (MeA) removes the requirement for a paper AWB. There is therefore no longer a need to print, handle or archive the paper, largely simplifying the air cargo process.

e-AWB performance and results

​​​​

e-AWB will become the default in January 2019

Nine years after its introduction in 2010, e-AWB will become the default contract of carriage for all air cargo shipments on enabled trade lanes by 1 January 2019. This key industry milestone brings air cargo into a new era where digital processes will be the norm and paper will be the exception.
