Royal Jordanian launches e-Air Waybill system

Posted 15 February 2017 · Add Comment

Royal Jordanian has started implementing the e-Air Waybill (e-AWB) system, which was developed in cooperation with the airline's Information Technology Department and CHAMP Cargosystems (CHAMP) an IT provider serving the air cargo industry.

The new system enables cargo agents to conduct cargo bookings and create airway bills through the system website.

e-Air Waybill is one of the initiatives of  IATA's Simplifying the Business (StB) program launched a few years ago. It has become an industry-wide initiative involving carriers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, shippers and customs authorities. It aims to take the paper out of air cargo and replace it with electronic data and messages.

RJ President/CEO Captain Suleiman Obeidat said Royal Jordanian's cargo sector is the second fundamental arm of the company. He said that RJ is eager to offer state-of-the-art services to its customers and agents in order to meet their demands and ease freighting services

“This e-AWB initiative further re-enforces the ongoing partnership between Royal Jordanian and CHAMP and provides real benefits to the community by increasing the digitization of the air cargo process leading to increased efficiency,” said Nicholas Xenocostas, vice president global sales and marketing at CHAMP Cargosystems.

“We are delighted that RJ has taken this step in the region; this will significantly simplify the air freight supply chain process, in addition to greater data accuracy,’’ added Xenocostas.
