An e-freight workshop held in Bangkok at the beginning of April has inspired the Thai air cargo community to speed up e-AWB adoption in the country.

BFS, the largest handler at Bangkok airport, is a joint venture between Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), the world’s largest independent ground handler, and Bangkok Airways. It has been working with WIN to increase transmission of e-AWB data in Thailand since the beginning of the year.

“In the last few months the momentum of e-AWB has really accelerated globally,” said Isabella Anderson, project manager, Cargo e-Business Adoption, International Air Transport Association (IATA).

“Close collaboration amongst stakeholders at airport level is key in building up support and drive adoption of e-AWB.”

BFS and WIN are now planning a further e-freight workshop to reach out to more companies in the Thai air cargo community.
