Published on Jan 6, 2011
Cathay Pacific Airways has announced that it has implemented the roll-out of 100% electronic air waybills (e-AWB) in Hong Kong. The move marks an important step in the industry-wide goal of creating a paperless environment in the airfreight sector. The airline made the switch to full
e-AWB use on 1 January, eliminating the need for all paper documents when issuing air waybills – the shipping documents used for the transportation of airfreight. IATA is aiming to have 100% e-AWB globally bythe end of 2014.
