What is e-freight

e-freight aims to take the paper out of air cargo and to replace it with the exchange of electronic data and messages.

Launched by IATA in 2006 as part of the StB program, e-freight became an industry-wide initiative involving carriers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, shippers and customs authorities. In 2012 the Global Air Cargo Advisory Group (GACAG) developed a roadmap to 100% e-freight (pdf).

The detailed roadmap to 100% e-freight (pdf) defines the approach, structure and targets for the e-freight program moving forward. The roadmap outlines a shared end-to-end industry approach with clear leadership roles, around three core components, or "pillars":

Pillar I:       Engaging regulators and governments worldwide to create an ‘e-freight route network’ with fully electronic customs procedures and where regulations support paperless shipments

Pillar II:      Working collaboratively within the cargo supply chain to digitize the core industry transport documents, starting with the air waybill

Pillar III:     Developing a plan to digitize the commercial and special cargo documents typically accompanying airfreight today, in or outside of the ‘Cargo pouch’.

2014 IATA Targets

  • Grow global e-AWB penetration to 22%
