IATA reports 1 in 4 shipments are flown without paper AWBs. Unfortunately, independent forwarders lag behind this statistic. Multinational forwarders on the other hand avoid manual processing fees and paper AWB surcharges, reduce errors, and get full electronic tracking by transmitting booking and AWB details electronically.
We all know that errors and missing documents create potentially costly claims and cause delays. Printing paper AWB and delivering them with the cargo for the airline or handler enter the data in a rush before the flight is far from a best practice.
Airlines charge manual processing fees and paper AWB surcharges that are either absorbed by the agent or passed on to the shipper, making your company less profitable or less competitive compared to the multinationals. What are you waiting for?
WIN Airfreight allows you to make bookings and transmit AWB details electronically to 160+ airlines for increased speed, accuracy, fewer delays and significant carrier fee reductions.
WIN provides full tracking on every shipment and enables sharing of Master and House AWBs with the destination agent (as PDF or JSON/XML data), and sharing tracking milestones, and any attached pouch documents.
All destination agents/consignees can open an account free of charge on WIN Airfreight to:
These capabilities allow destination agents to get started on their end of the process sooner, well before airline notification of shipment arrival and can even help facilitate e-freight or e-AWB adoption using e-pouch documents.
WIN has joined the IATA Multilateral e-AWB Agreement making it even easier for you to join as well with just one click away. Click here to learn more.
Co-loaders can transmit FWB/FHL themselves to the Master Agent’s registered airlines. Upon a co-loader’s registration with WIN, the co-loader shall receive their own password reset email to create their own user account and password and will not have the ability to access the master agent’s account. To get started, the co-loader shall coordinate with the master agent and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
