e-AWB

What is e-AWB?

e-AWB (electronic Air Waybill) is the electronic equivalent of the traditional paper AWB. Through electronic data interchange (EDI) messages, e-AWB is the contract of carriage between the “Shipper” and the “Carrier”. Shipments can be differentiated by special handling codes (SHC):
- EAW: e-AWB shipments without accompanying documents
- EAP: e-AWB shipments with accompanying paper documents
