Lufthansa and cargo.one remove the need to hold AWB stocks

[ March 28, 2022   //   ]

Lufthansa Cargo and cargo.one have launched in initiative that removes the need for freight forwarders to hold valid Air Waybill (AWB) stocks before booking air cargo. Usersof the booking platform can now have an AWB automatically assigned when they book capacity on the carrier.

For decades, the progression of an air cargo booking has relied upon the manual allocation of an AWB number and if forwarders ran out, it prevented them from making further bookings.

Cargo.one has selected Auto Assigned AWBs with Lufthansa Cargo as its launch partner allowing forwarders to book shipments immediately without needing to find a valid AWB number first, although they can choose to still enter one manually. The user clicks ‘Book Now’  and an AWB is automatically assigned.
