A TOTAL of 1,205 forwarders have now signed the International Air Transportation Association’s (IATA) ground-breaking multilateral e-AWB agreement, writes Thelma Etim, deputy editor.
The single standard document allows shipments information to be exchanged electronically, rather than being accompanied by paper airwaybills.
The number of airlines who have signed the agreement remains at 77.
Global e-AWB penetration reached 16.2 per cent in June – up 1.2 per cent on the previous month.
The e-AWB target for 2014 is 22 per cent.
