American joins IATA multilateral e-AWB initiative
“We have been working behind the scenes on this important issue for some time, and we’re excited to see our name added to the agreement,” said Kenji Hashimoto, American’s President of Cargo. “Joining this pioneering group moves us one step closer to paperless operations, which will create more efficiencies for our customers and help minimize our impact on the environment.”
The IATA agreement provides a single standard agreement for airlines and freight forwarders to carry out cargo contracts electronically. As of Sept. 2, 41 airlines and 187 freight forwarders have joined the multilateral agreement.
