Removal of paper AWB & replace by electronic AWB data between Freight Forwarder and Airline. Replacing paper contract by electronic contract Establish first mandatory step for e-Freight Objectives of e-AWB
Design Principles One standard process between Freight Forwarder and Airline. All cargo types. All destinations, MC99 or non-MC99 Countries.
How to implement it? To sign an Agreement for EDI with Forwarder (Global agreement with Annex F for each individual location) To exchange electronic messages via CDMP or direct host-to- host connection. CX IT Provider is GLSHK (Ezycargo/Ezyfreight) * Forwarder send FWB/FHL to Airline and receive FNA/RCS from Airline Options: 1. Host to Host connection (Forwarders own system, Local IT Provider, Global IT Gateway) 2.Ezycargo/Ezyfreight
Design Approach One standard procedure to Freight Forwarder – No AWB Paper for all destinations ex-HKG Freight Forwarder has to send electronic Air Waybill and House Data to CX e-Freight (ezyfreight) System. Other required documents can be manually uploaded to electronic airline pouch CX will accept the AWB within 30 mins and inform Ready For Carriage with EDI message (RCS) or reject with error message (FNA) CX will print AWB and House Manifest on behalf of forwarder based on individual destination requirement
AWB Printing Based on Destination Note: Master Waybill will be printed in either Neutral or Laser A4 House Manifest will be printed in Laser A4 House Manifest will be printed in Laser A4 Neutral AWB will be printed for truck and Interline shipments Neutral AWB will be printed for truck and Interline shipments Hopefully in near future, AWB will be printed by destination only when required. Inbound Customs Clearance Neutral AWBLaser AWBe-Freight (4 copies)(Print 1 A4 paper copy) (No paper AWB onboard) Local Customs accept PEK / CTU / CKG / FOC / HGH / KMG / NKG / NGB / TAO / PVG / WUH / XMN / CAN / CEB / HKT / PNH / JKT / SUB / KTM / DEL / BOM / MAA / RUH / JED / MOW / CMB/ BKK / DPS / MNL / HAN / SGN / DAC/ DXB / KIX / PNH JNB / CSX / PUS / FUK / NGO / SPK / ADL / CNS / PER / BRU /MXP / ROM / ARN / BAH / YYZ / LAX / SFO / IAH / ATL / DFW / MIA / SYX / PEN / BLR / KHI / BKI / HND / SDJ /OKA AKL / AMS / HKG / KUL / LHR / ICN / SIN / SYD / YVR / NRT / MEL / BNE/ FRA / CDG / MAN / JFK / ORD/ PER/ KHH/ TPE
e-AWB Process – Overview Freight Forwarders Receive Freight (warehouse receipt) Deliver Freight (system validation) Resolve Issues (with forwarder if any) FNA Resolve Issues (with airline if any) Airlines ERPWeb Service Providers Deliver Pouch (to airline if any) Fly Pouch (to destination if any) Validate Information (data and scan) e-Pouch (documents for airline acceptance: license, declaration letter etc) Scan DocumentsFreight on Hand FSU/FOH (system starts data validation) Freight Acceptance FSU/RCS Print Cargo Receipt (if need be) (produce cargo receipt) Receive Information FWB/FHL Prepare Consol (system starts data validation)
Sample of e-AWB Pouch Label
Difference between e-AWB and e-Freight e-AWBe-Freight To remove paper Air Waybill and replaced by electronic message (FWB). To remove all physical papers required for air transport, and convert them to electronic messages. Examples: Air Waybill, House Manifest, House AWB, Invoice, Packing List, Certificate of Origin, etc. Can implement on non-IATA declared e-freight stations. Only implement on IATA declared e-Freight stations. No IATA Cargo IMP code Need to input IATA Cargo IMP code: EAW or EAP The whole chain involves: Origin Freight Forwarder Origin Airline The whole chain involves: Shipper Origin Freight Forwarder Origin Airline Origin GHA Origin Customs Destination Customs Destination GHA Destination Airline Destination Freight Forwarder Consignee Common Practice for e-AWB & e-Freight : Documents which cant be converted to electronic data can be sent to Airline through Ezycargo as e-Pouch.
CX/KA have successfully cutover 100% e-AWB in HKG as planned on 01Jan11 e-AWB have been shipped to almost all CX/KA destinations and 100+ offline stations All EDI Agreements signed 2/3 of HKG forwarders are connected by host-to-host Latest Status
CX e-AWB Vision
Move AWB document printing from Forwarder to Airline origin station Move AWB document printing from origin to destination, print only by exception Implement 100% e-AWB for all CX/KA online stations by end 2012 Remove Forwarder Pouch by implementing e-Freight e-AWB Vision

IBERIA e-AWB VISION Angel Cabeza IBERIA CARGO / Head of Network & Product Development IATA World Cargo Symposium, Istanbul, March 9th, 2011
AGENDA 1. IB vision on e-AWB 2. The solution 3. The Status 4. What's next
IBERIA e-AWB VISION The AWB is the common document for all shipments… Let´s Make it HISTORY ! Number of Documents & Complexity Benefits & Shipments eAWB eFreight Now
THE SOLUTION Spanish Customs Support IT Systems readiness : iberia-cargo.com & TRAXON GLOBAL CCS eBusiness HelpDesk: eAWB & eFreight are MAJOR changes for all participants IATA RP1670 full endorsment as IB eAWB standard Agreement Forwarders & IBERIA Top Management willingness to embrace this initiative and get eAWB benefits in early stages IBERIA eAWB KEY SUCCESS ELEMENTS
IBERIA e-FREIGHT & e-AWB STATUS More than 10 with Global & Local Forwarders from Spain, Colombia, Germany have already signed with IB eAWB Agreement IBERIA as part of the IATA eAWB Working Group support the IATA RP 1670, and takes it as the Standard IB eAWB Agreement Other 2 Global and 8 Local Forwarders to join during 2011

Keynote: The Emirates e-AWB Experience in Dubai Niranjan Navaratnarajah, Manager Cargo Systems and E-Freight, Emirates SkyCargo
37 Moving Toward 100% e-AWB" By Niranjan Navaratnarajah Manager cargo Systems & E- Freight
38 Reduction in processing cost Greater accuracy Reduction in cargo handling delays Elimination of the requirements to file and store paper AWB Real-time access to AWB information when required and not from stores Remember the Benefits.
39 How did we do it. Door to Door Campaign with Global Account Customers Campaign Locally with trusted customers Educate and explain the e-AWB concept to Staff and Customers. Be creative and offer differential Service offerings. Simplify it, e-AWB and e-Freight, Separate but connected.
40 How did we do it. Explained that the e-AWB agreement is simply replacing the Condition of Contract on the AWB. Contrary to opinion, the e-AWB agreement protects the interests of Customers. Have an open dialog with Customs, Airline and Agent on a feasible solution to achieve e-AWB in the local market. DXB customs dont want the MAWB
41 Global Forwarders are cautious to accept and adapt e-AWB even though their IT systems are e-AWB capable already. Forwarder local offices hesitant to adopt e-AWB, what's in it for us? Countries which have ratified the MP4/MC99 treaties where customs are still demanding original AWB documentation. What are the challenges?
42 What are the challenges? Changing the mind set among customers to accept electronic data (EDI) instead of paper documents. Numerous legacy IT systems in place. Customs IT landscapes are very diversified.
43 Keeping our Targets in View. 100% e-AWB by end % e-AWB by end % e-AWB by end % e-AWB by end 2011
44 Moving Toward 100% e-AWB" Thank You
Keynote: How to Roll-Out Successfully e-AWB? Céline Lavinay-Hourcade, Manager, Cargo Industry Management, IATA
46 Objectives of e-AWB project Replace the paper Air Waybills by the electronic version. No more paper AWB tendered to airlines! Provide a win-win-win scenario for airlines, freight forwarders and ground handlers by lowering costs, increasing data accuracy and improving customer experience
47 Key milestones for the Industry 2010: standard approved (RP1670) by the Industry and piloted by 9 airlines in 8 countries 2011: 6% e-AWB 2012: 30% e-AWB & standard EDI multi-lateral agreement 2013: 70% e-AWB 2014: 100% e-AWB
48 e-AWB today 10 cargo hubs in 10 countries where e-AWB has already been piloted by 12 airlines 162 airlines & local FFA to be actively engaged in April/May by IATA to raise awareness and mobilize the industry toward the 2014 mandate 111 countries where e-AWB is legally feasible accounting for 95% of the global air freight volumes
49 Reduce your costs and delays Improve your customer service Start e-AWB, now!
50 Simple steps for your e-AWB project 1. Set up your project team 2. Define your deployment plan 3. Ensure technology is in place 4. Sign your first EDI agreements 5. Engage and align your partners 6. Use the support from IATA
51 Set-up your project team Get the support from your Senior Management (Sales, IT, Legal, Operations, Customer support) Your e-AWB project champion needs to have a lot of IT background, the cargo experience and the passion to make it happen
52 Define your deployment plan When? First signed EDI agreement 100% out of home market 100% where feasible How? By freight forwarder? By GHA? Where? Home market? e-AWB markets? Top trade-lanes? e-freight trade-lanes? All trade lanes or only MC99/MP4 trade lanes?
53 Ensure technology is in place Ensure you have the capability to send, receive & archive FWB, FSU/RCS messages and Cargo Receipt Offer web portal to your customers without EDI capability Improve your data quality
54 Sign your first EDI agreements Define your strategy Contact your top 20 customers? Engage all your customers in the same market? Contact the local FFA and let them push for their members to sign the EDI agreements? Involve the right people: Legal is in the driver seat, Sales and Claims departments need to be trained & informed
55 Engage and align your partners Engage Communicate Explain Align Ground handlers Freight forwarders Interline partners Airports IT providers Insurance companies
56 Use the support from IATA Already available e-AWB basics e-AWB specifications IATA RP1670 on Coming soon e-AWB scorecards e-AWB e-learning module e-AWB Interactive Map to check the airports readiness e-AWB Handbook IATA Regional Workshops
