The eAWB is a transaction of electronic data messages (EDI) in lieu of the standard hardcopy paper AWB.
eAWBs help customers save time and contribute to a healthier environment through a reduction in paper used and ultimately lighter cargo loads that require less fuel, therefore produce lower carbon emissions. eAWBs contribute to Polar’s greening strategy – less waste, better future!
