Paperless in the Sultanate
Oman continues to implement international best practices in business by adopting Iata's electronic airway bill (e-AWB) standard in replacement of the paper airway bill. In support of the implementation process, Iata and the IT logistics provider Champ Cargo Systems will offer freight forwarders low-cost online facilitation for the creation and sharing of e-AWB messages.
Oman Air Cargo, which launched paperless processes earlier this year, and Asyad conducted an e-AWB workshop on 26 September for the trade partners and airlines by inviting delegates from Iata and Champ to share the best practices and create awareness about e-AWB.
On that occasion Oman Air Cargo became e-AWB compliant by signing the Iata resolution 672, attachment D agreement. (ah)
