IATA wel­comes e-AWB ini­tia­tives from for­warders

Cargo Talk - - Editorial -

om­san Lo­gis­tics, a leading Turk­ish in­de­pen­dent freight for­warder, has be­come one of the first three lo­gis­tics providers in Turkey to com­plete full e-AWB ship­ments in as­so­ci­a­tion with World­wide In­for­ma­tion Net­work (WIN) con­nec­tiv­ity plat­form. Both IATA and Turk­ish Air­lines have com­mended this im­por­tant achieve­ment as a sig­nif­i­cant step for­ward for SME for­warders.

As an pi­o­neer­ing ini­tia­tive, Om­san used a sin­gle plat­form (WIN) for the en­tire process, from join­ing the IATA Mul­ti­lat­eral e-AWB Agree­ment, to ap­proval and then elec­tron­i­cally trans­mit­ting all rel­e­vant data and documents.

Com­ment­ing on this ini­tia­tive, Des Ver­tannes, Global Head of Cargo, IATA said, “The ex­pe­ri­ence of Om­san demon­strates that for SME for­warders the ef­fi­cien­cies and process ben­e­fits of join­ing the Mul­ti­lat­eral e-AWB Agree­ment and adopt­ing the e-AWB are real and tan­gi­ble.” Ac­cord­ing to John DeBenedette, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, WIN, Om­san’s early suc­cess can be repli­cated across the in­de­pen­dent freight for­ward­ing sec­tor.
