Shanghai Pudong Airport generates most outbound e-air waybills globally


Shanghai Pudong Airport ranked first globally in the volume of outbound e-air waybills as of May, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
The coverage of electronic-air waybills at the airport rose to 60.6 per cent in May, a sharp increase compared to 14 per cent in March 2015, the year Shanghai started to promote the use of electronic-air waybills.
"Shanghai Pudong Airport is one of the most important hubs for China Southern Airlines Cargo and we have more than 110 outbound air cargo flights per month here, with a monthly volume of 13,000 electronic-air waybills," said China Southern Airlines officer Yi Wangjun.
"We began to use electronic-air waybills at Shanghai Pudong Airport in 2016 and now e-AWBs account for 99 per cent of the total air waybills," he said, reported Shanghai Eastday
"Paper-based air waybills waste a lot of paper and require meticulous management of documents," he said. "Moreover, it consumes a lot of time and effort for forwarders and agents to collect, print and transfer the air waybills.
"It is even more troublesome to handle the loss of air waybills. Cargo has to wait for the replacement of the lost air waybill during its journey before moving on. Now, the serial number of an air waybill is the "passport" for the cargo and all the amendment, supplement and communication processes can be handled online."
