São Paulo airport export terminal operating with e-AWB


e-AWB Solution

The São Paulo International Airport (GRU) is now prepared to implement the electronic Air Waybill system (e-AWB). This is an international air transport document, which serves as proof of delivery of the goods on board the aircraft and includes relevant information on the carrier, the recipient, the distance travelled, etc. With a view to cutting down the bureaucracy associated with these documents, Brazil's biggest airport has decided to join the electronic project sponsored by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which could eventually eliminate the use of 7,800 tons of paper per year worldwide.

Replacing the AWB on paper by an electronic file will help optimize logistic operations, cut down on cargo processing times and sharpen the country’s competitive edge in the aviation market. Moreover, this technological upgrading represents yet another step towards paper-free working in an industry that moves hundreds of documents every day. “The long-term aim is that we should be able to have all the documents related with cargo transport in electronic format in real-time”, affirms IATA Director for Brazil, Carlos Ebner.

Taking part in the pilot project to roll out e-AWB at the São Paulo International Airport were American Airlines, Lufthansa Airlines and TAM Cargo, alongside freight forwarders DB Schenker and Panalpina. Now that the initial phase is complete, the export cargo terminal is now fully up and running. The next step is for other airlines and agents to sign up to the e-AWB, with the aim of further expanding this technology to the import sector.

The rollout of this new system is spreading worldwide. According to IATA data, by last August e-AWB penetration had reached almost 20%. However, the figure for airports such as Hong Kong (SAR), Singapore (SG) or Arab Emirates (AE) was already over 50%. In the next 2 years, forecasts predict that the global penetration rate will reach 80 %.


How to implement e-AWB?

The EDICOM e-Air Waybill platform automates the creation of all freight documents in line with the XML standard required by the IATA and makes it possible to exchange them directly and securely by EDI technology (Electronic Data Interchange). We also have a powerful Public Administration Hub that links up with the customs authorities of each country signed up to the new IATA model, to declare the standardized file.
