Air Waybills (AWB) KNOW-HOW

Your Ticket to Efficient Air Cargo Management: A Comprehensive Guide to The Essential Document for Your Air Freight Shipments

What is an Air Waybill?

An Air Waybill (AWB) is a critical document in air freight shipments that serves as both a receipt for the consigned goods and a contract between the shipper and the carrier. Unlike ocean freight's Bill of Lading, an AWB is not a document of title but an agreement that ensures your cargo will reach its intended destination.

Importance in Business

It allows for a smoother logistics process, helping you save both time and resources.

Key Components of an Air Waybill
  • Shipper and Consignee Information: Detailed contact information for both parties.

  • Description of Goods: Accurate and comprehensive listing of what is being shipped.

  • Flight Details: Information about the airline, route, and any transshipment points.

  • Weight and Dimensions: Crucial for determining shipping costs and for customs clearance.
