Emirates SkyCargo adopts paperless cargo system

Emirates SkyCargo is the first airline to carry cargo under the multilateral agreement. Since 2011, Emirates SkyCargo has put in place 120 bilateral e-AWB agreements with its customers to ensure a smooth transition from paper Air Waybills (AWB) to electronic record formats, known in industry terms as ‘Electronic Air Waybill data’ (FWB).

“Following the recent World Cargo Symposium held in Doha, at which the e-AWB multilateral agreement was ratified, we have received an increased interest in e-AWB adoption from our customer base globally. In addition, we have observed heightened interest in e-freight implementation industry-wide – we are at an important junction for the cargo industry, with the future looking bright for e-freight adoption,” said Ram Menen, Emirates divisional senior vice president cargo.

“With increased flexibility in the e-AWB process as a result of the multilateral e-AWB agreement, industry players are finding it easier to enter into the e-AWB environment and manage processes electronically with their customers. As a result, we will see increased adoption of e-AWB processes for both the Montreal and Warsaw Convention Countries over the coming months and years. Emirates SkyCargo will continue to remain at the forefront of these developments and advise those interested in taking the steps to ‘go green’ and adopt a paperless cargo system,” he added.
