THE SECOND IATA e-Cargo Conference, which takes place in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 18-20, will provide a comprehensive update on the digitisation of key air cargo industry documentation.

It is the latest development in an industry-wide bid to deliver a paperless transportation process for the entire air cargo supply chain.

Attendees will be updated on the latest developments of e-Cargo projects, including e-Customs and Advanced Electronic Information, network expansion plans, e-AWB status and adoption of the multilateral agreement, e-House manifest, e-CSD, cargo acceptance and new technology, says IATA.

Delegates will learn and discuss new trends and promising developments, such as connecting shipper platforms, or enhancing customer service with smart-chip technology; the promise of cloud computing, or ways to improve connectivity among stakeholders; and how e-Cargo will transform with the advent of XML technology and much more.

An e-AWB workshop will focus on hot topics impacting practitioners when implementing eAWBs in their companies.
