e-freight Consignment with No Accompanying Paper Documents (EAW) and e-freight Consignment with Accompanying Paper Documents (EAP) are done with ad hoc or permanent Special Handling Codes.
EAW = "e-freight Consignment with No Accompanying Paper Documents": e-AWB data will be transfered to airline, no shipping documents (e.g. invoice, packing list, Certificate of Orign) will be delivered with the shipment. No need to print the AWB.
EAP = "e-freight Consignment with Accompanying Paper Documents": e-AWB data will be transfered to airline, additionally other shipping documents (e.g. invoice, packing list, Certificate of Orign, Dangerous Goods Declaration) will accompany the shipment. No need to print out AWB, only to add e-Pouch with documents to the shipments.
Note: Please check with airlines in advance, which kind of e-freight is allowed at place of departure/arrival.
Special Handling Codes
Shipment > IATA AWB editor
Click on the blue action link Edit Special Handling Codes.
Note: When a special handling code is applied to an AWB, this indicates the AWB is an eAWB, and it is not possible to manually edit the AWB in the AWB editor. This is because any manual edits on the AWB will not be transmitted to the airline.
