Main IATA navigation


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. 

The e-AWB project is part of the
e-freight initiative and aims at encouraging air cargo players to use the electronic AWB (e-AWB), instead of its paper version. Moving to e-AWB is a key enabler to achieve the 100% e-freight vision.
