We are pleased to inform you that e-AWB is now enabled for shipments originating in Seattle (SEA) and Portland (PDX).
The e-AWB Single Process will enable you to tender your shipments without a paper AWB (a plain paper copy, however, is required to be tendered for the trucks to cross the border). 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 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: 3 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.
Request the IATA Multilateral Activation Notice from Air Canada Cargo.
Transmit air waybill data before cargo acceptance at the terminal. Data can be delivered using IATA's EDI Cargo IMP (FWB), XML (XFWB) messages or via tool. This covers the front side of a traditional paper AWB.
