Description of the Subject - International Air Transport Association (IATA). e-AWB.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the largest global association related to the air cargo and passenger transport. It is made up of 290 airlines from 120 countries, representing 82% of the total air traffic.

The Air Waybill (AWB) is an air cargo document that constitutes the contract of carriage between the sender and the carrier (airline).

  1. The resolution on the IATA Air Waybill (e-AWB) eliminates the requirement for an AWB on paper.
  2. e-AWB is now the default transportation contract for the international air cargo transport
  3. In September 2018, the air cargo industry processed more than 2.3 million air waybills (AWB)
  4. 76% of the AWBs are generated in Europe, Asia-Pacific and North Asia
  5. The global penetration of the e-AWB is currently estimated at 56%

The Unit Load Devices, mainly containers, allow a fast and economic handling for the Air Transport cargo. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) developed the technical specifications for this type of unit load devices.

  1. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) also developed the Dangerous Goods Regulations for Safe Transportation.
