The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that Chile became the 27th e-freight country worldwide when IATA e-freight for exports went live in early June at Santiago Arturo Merino Benitez Airport (SCL). E-freight for imports is in the testing process and is expected to be implemented in the coming months.

IATA e-freight, one of the Simplifying the Business projects, improves service and cuts by taking the paper out of the air cargo supply chain. Facilitated by IATA, the project is an industry-wide initiative involving customs authorities, carriers, freight forwarders, ground handlers and shippers.

The Chilean IATA e-freight implementation team was led by LAN Cargo in close cooperation with Customs, Aviation Authorities represented by Junta Aeronáutica Civil and all stakeholders across the supply chain including local forwarder participation by DHL Global Forwarding, Schenker and Kuehne & Nagel.
