No paper please, says Air Canada

Air Canada Cargo says that electronic air waybills (e-AWBs) will become the preferred method of shipping cargo at seven of its international stations from next year.
They are Amsterdam (effective 1 January), Paris CDG, Frankfurt (FRA) (both 1 February) and London Heathrow, Zurich, Milan and Dubai (all 1 March).
The carrier is urging its cargo partners to join the IATA Multilateral e-AWB Agreement and to transmit air waybill data before cargo acceptance at the terminal using IATA’s EDI Cargo IMP (FWB) messages or via web tools.
