We are pleased to inform you that we are switching over to electronic air waybill (e-AWB) as the preferred means of shipping cargo to all destinations by using the e-AWB Single Process at the following international stations:
- Amsterdam (AMS) - effective January 1
- Paris (CDG) - effective February 1
- Frankfurt (FRA) - effective February 1
- London (LHR) - effective March 1
- Zurich (ZRH) - effective March 1
- Milan (MXP) - effective March 1
- Dubai (DXB) - effective March 1
The e-AWB Single Process will enable you to tender your shipments without paper AWB. For destinations where a paper AWB might be required due to regulatory, operational, or other reasons, we will print the paper AWB for you, based on the air waybill data transmitted.
As we work towards our goal of moving away from paper air waybills, we encourage you, our customer, to take the necessary steps to join us in this effort that will result in multiple benefits for everyone involved in the air freight industry.
e-AWB: 2 EASY STEPS
- Join the IATA Multilateral e-AWB Agreement. This agreement covers the terms and conditions found on the reverse side of traditional paper AWBs. See the IATA website for details.
- Transmit air waybill data before cargo acceptance at the terminal. Data can be delivered using IATA's EDI Cargo IMP (FWB) messages or via web tool. This covers the front side of a traditional paper AWB.
e-BOOKING: A SIMPLE SOLUTION
Air Canada Cargo's new e-Booking tool is e-AWB compatible and makes online booking of cargo an easy proposition.
