IAG leads the way with e-AWBs

[ March 17, 2015   //   ]

IAG Cargo says it is now the leading European carrier when it comes to e-air waybill (e-AWB) with a 34% penetration rate – well ahead of the industry average of 25%. 

IAG Cargo has made e-AWB available in more than 160 stations globally – almost all of its network where e-AWBs are legally recognised. The carrier now has multi- or bilateral agreements in place with in excess of 100 forwarders and has completed data quality assessments on 2,400 branches.

Stephane Noll, IATA’s regional cargo manager at IATA paid tribute to the “amazing job” that IAG had done in Europe and in the world in accelerating modernization. commented: “In the past few months, IAG Cargo has been instrumental in driving the e-AWB agenda by taking an active leadership in many airports. On many trade lanes out of Europe, North America and North Asia, IAG Cargo e-AWB penetration is above market performance.”
