Rolling out the eAWB & the Multilateral Agreement

When adopting the eAWB, a self-assessment may be required to identify needs, timelines, capabilities and connectivity. Some key questions include:

  • How much time is allocated to re-keying airway bill information, searching for status details in a carrier’s web-based portal or calling individual airlines for status updates?
  • How confident are you in new eAWB technology that has not been tested by the marketplace?
  • What are the capabilities of your existing logistics technology, and how quickly do you believe it can transition to the eAWB?
  • Have carriers communicated to you that they are adopting a Single Process approach to the eAWB and, if so, how will you send them information?
  • Are there times when you are unable to enter eAWB details in a timely manner due to business demands?
  • Do you know that you can still benefit from the eAWB even if a carrier does not support it at origin?
  • How much time does your business spend producing and emailing paper documents for air shipments?
