Peru latest to implant electronic air waybill (e-AWB)


The International Air Transport Association (IATA) project to remove paperwork from cargo processes continues to grow. The latest country to join the electronic air waybill scheme, known as e-AWB, is Peru. With this measure, the National Customs and Tax Administration (SUNAT) intends to promote supply chain optimization in air transport.

From now on, air waybills will be transmitted electronically. This will lower economic costs, by doing away with traditional management of files on paper, while reducing the number of errors and avoiding the habitual delays in freight loading processes. With the e-AWB, stakeholders involved in freight transport will have continuous monitoring of information in each of the phases, so planning will be more effective.

Another advantage of the new electronic air waybill promoted by IATA is that the data will be more accurate and there will no longer be legibility issues. In addition, the former requirements stipulating storage of these paper documents will no longer hold. In other words, the airlines, freight forwarders, customs authorities and customers will all benefit from a more secure, efficient and faster system.


Teamwork project


As noted by the SUNAT in a public communiqué, the tax agency has been backing the initiative and encouraging use of the e-AWB since last February. To this end, there has been a joint effort with IATA, AETAI and the World Customs Organization (WCO). In fact, as part of the SAFE Framework initiative, the SUNAT and WCO have set out “an international agreement containing 17 standards to enhance security in the logistical supply chain, trading facilities, the fight against corruption and tax collection.” The next step for the SUNAT will be to modernize its IT systems, setting up a communication system in the XML standard recommended by the WCO.

With this measure, Peru joins a global project that is gaining ground in all continents, saving tons of paper each year. Currently, international penetration of the e-AWB is around 39%, and by late 2016 the IATA expects it to reach 56%.


Data flows better electronically


At EDICOM we have developed EDICOMAir, our e-Air Waybill platform, which automatically generates the freight information based on the XML standards set by the IATA. In addition, our solution incorporates data translation mechanisms that let you take the former sector messaging in Cargo IMP format and automatically and transparently generate the new Cargo XML messages regulated by the IATA. These sensitive documents are then sent via secure private communication networks (VANs) to freight forwarders, airlines and customs authorities, providing real-time traceability.

Among the communication possibilities provided by EDICOM’s technological infrastructure, we highlight the connectivity through our Public Administration HUB, a powerful multiprotocol communications module that lets you connect directly and securely with the customs authorities of each country using the new IATA model to declare the standardized Cargo Manifest file.
