Qatar Airways Cargo signs Multilateral e-Airway bill agreement with IATA
“Benefits of electronic airway bills include reduced costs, higher productivity, better reliability, and enhanced regulatory compliance,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Office Akbar Al Baker: “Most importantly it paves the way toward a paper-free e-freight system.”
The agreement with IATA enables Qatar Airways Cargo to accept e-AWB from all participating freight forwarders. Freight forwarders who have signed multilateral e-AWB agreements with IATA will be able to tender e-AWB shipments to Qatar Airways Cargo at multiple airports around the globe.
To facilitate seamless electronic data exchange with freight forwarders, Qatar Airways Cargo has appointed Cargo Community Network – Singapore, a provider of cargo community system services (CCS) and e-solutions for the air cargo industry, as its CCS partner.
