Airway bill (AWB)

An airway bill (AWB) is a document used in air cargo that serves as a receipt for the goods being shipped and acts as a contract between the shipper and carrier. The AWB contains information such as the origin and destination of the shipment, the quantity and type of goods, and the weight and dimensions of the shipment. It is used for tracking and customs clearance purposes.
