Once you have been activated by the airline, you can start using e-AWBs and there will be no need to deliver your paper AWB to the AF KLM office. You only have to send the e-AWB (if a paper AWB is still required at the final stations, we will print one for you).
The single process applies worldwide, so e-AWB can be achieved for every destination without restrictions.
Yes, you can use e-AWBs for all special cargo. Ensure that you provide all the other paper documentation as required.
You deliver your paper documents in a pouch (identified with AWB number) and ensure your FWB includes the special handling code (SHC) EAP (Electronic Air Waybill with Pouch). But, even in this case, a paper AWB is not required and the e-AWB can be used as the legal contract of carriage.
You receive an FMA (see question XX). If you receive an FNA, the message has been rejected (see question number xx).
You will always receive an FMA or FNA message. The FMA message confirms that the FWB has been processed and accepted by the airline. You can now also see the details of the FMA on your MyCargo page.
The security information (e-CSD) can be inserted in the OCI field of the FWB.
Please refer to the dedicated e-CSD section.
EAW is the special handling code (SHC) indicating that no document pouch is expected to be delivered by the freight forwarder.
EAP is the SHC indicating that there will be a document pouch accompanying the shipment.
EAP/EAW Special Handling Codes must be mentioned in the section of the FWB dedicated to SHC. The line is identified by the code /SPH/ and multiple SHCs can be mentioned.
No further amendments can be made to the FWB after the RCS. If you need to make any changes, please contact us because you will have to submit a CCA request, as was the case for paper AWBs.
In order for AFKL to accept a shipment, we need to either have a paper AWB or have received a valid FWB before delivery. If the FWB is rejected, you must correct and resend it before delivering your shipment.
