Electronic air waybill (e-AWB) will become the preferred method of shipping cargo at the following international stations:
- Hong Kong (HKG) - effective June 1
- Montreal (YUL) - effective June 1
- Toronto (YYZ) - effective June 1
- Vancouver (YVR) - effective June 1
- New York, JFK (JFK) - effective July 1
- Dallas (DFW) - effective July 1
- Chicago (ORD) - effective August 1
- Los Angeles (LAX) - effective August 1
- Miami (MIA) - effective September 1
- Atlanta (ATL) - effective September 1
- Geneva (GVA) - effective October 1
There's still time to make sure your company and shipments are ready:
- 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.
The e-AWB enables you to tender your shipments without a paper AWB, saving on time and resources. 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.
