Qatar Airways Cargo signs Multilateral e-Airway bill agreement with IATA
Qatar Airways Cargo has announced the signing of a multilateral e-Air Waybill (e-AWB) agreement (Resolution 672) with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) which provides a legal framework for parties to conclude cargo contracts by electronic means.
Developed collaboratively by IATA with industry stakeholders, e-AWB removes the requirement for a paper air waybill by providing consent to do an electronic airway bill while not altering the conditions of contract of carriage.
