First ever eAWB Express Kiosks Opens in PAGSS

 

PHILIPPINES, 17 October 2017 - Philippine Airport Ground Support Solution (PAGGS Inc.),together with Cargo Community Network (CCN) and Cargo Data Exchange Center (CDEC) Inc.,launched the first ever eAWB Express Kiosk in the country. This is a joint project which aims to push forward IATA's e-AWB initiative by enabling all forwarders to submit electronic air waybill(MAWB) and print neutral master air waybill right at the point of cargo lodging.

 

The kiosks, located at the Mezannine area of the PAGSS warehouse is a fully airconditioned area where PC and printer set-ups are made available for the processors of the brokers and forwarders to create, revise and print MAWB using CCNhub, CCN’s web-based community system. This platform enableforwarders to input, revise and submit electronic AWB, which is the first step towards complying to the eAWB requirements of the airlines.

 

For forwarders with their own system, the kiosks will enable them to amend right after the final weigh-in, so they won't need to go back at their office to amend. After amendment, they can print the data in the NAWB paper and submit to the Customs right away, allowing for the faster processing of the shipment documents.

 

“We are very much honored to be the site of the first e-AWB express kiosks in the country. PAGSS has always been on the look-out for ways to help the industry improve its processes and embrace innovation and this project is definitely a way to achieve these goals.”, declares Janette Cordero, President and CEO of PAGSS.

 

“As the country progresses, the challenge of matching resources and infrastructure with the flourishing volume, is always a top concern. Going digital by leveraging on technology is the way going forward, to be more competitive and be ready for greater business.”, CCN CEO Teow Boon Ling notes.

 

With the eAWB express kiosks at PAGSS, all the forwarders, both big and small, can be enabled to send eAWB to all airlines, not just the ones using the warehouse. This will greatly bring time and cost savings to the forwarders.By submitting the eAWB through CCNhub, either through the kiosks or host-to-host connection to CCN, the forwarders will be able to comply with current and future eAWB requirements of all airlines and thus, we can ensure that vision of having  a paperless environment for the airfreight industry will be a possibility.
