April 26, 2016 100% Domestic e-AWB: The Home Stretch!
On January 21, we launched a campaign aimed at obtaining 100% e-AWB usage on domestic shipments by April 28. Thanks to your engagement and response, we have seen dramatic usage increases over the course of our campaign. Here are some of the highlights:
e-AWB usage in Canada has increased by 55% over last year
60% of our top customers have an e-AWB usage of 90% or more
Usage of our e-Booking tool has doubled since December
We are aware that many of you are still in the midst of making the conversion to e-AWB. To support those of you that are finalizing your e-AWB conversion plans, the $18 fee for shipments tendered without an e-AWB will be waived until June 1.
There is still time to get on board with e-AWB. If you have any questions, please visit our website, or contact your local Air Canada Cargo representative.
The success of the campaign so far is attributable to hard work and a willingness of the industry to embrace the many benefits of switching to e-AWB. Thank you to all of you who have joined us and made this goal attainable.
