e-AWB is an IATA initiative to remove the paper AWB and replace it with electronic data.
Yes, assuming you have signed an “e-AWB agreement” with the airlines. This contract is needed since the e-AWB replaces the paper AWB as a contract of carriage between the “shipper” (forwarder) and the airline.
Primarily, you can avoid some airline fees by supplying Master and House AWBs electronically. You benefit from printing AWBs on blank A4 paper and receiving automatic statuses from the airlines, which you can forward to your customer. If there will be new users in the additional environment, then the payment is per user. Users in an additional environment do not have free access to the parent environment.
e-AWB is based on a subscription fee plus pay-per-use fees for the AWBs transmitted to the airlines. For pay-per-use plans, see packages below. Subscription is free for existing Logitude Economy and Business customers - you only need to pay per AWB transmitted to the airlines. If you are not a Logitude customer, subscription to the e-AWB package is only USD 20 per user per month. Using the Logitude e-AWB package will typically save you, USD 10 in airline fees, per AWB.
AWB packages are shared across all of your users and are valid for 12 months (after which unused AWB credits will expire). Larger packages incorporate discounts reducing the cost per AWB. Additional packages can be purchased at any time.
You pay per message transmitted to an airline. If you transmit a MAWB and all the HAWBs, then you pay for all. Please note that it is advised to transmit HAWBs only in cases where due to such action you will avoid airlines fees.

Yes! We have a demo environment where you can try the service. You can even simulate transmissions to airlines. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The free trial includes simulation of transmission of e-AWBs to airlines. Live transmissions in a free trial environment are not permitted due to registration processes within the airlines. All other Logitude functionality is available during the 30-day trial.
Standard registration with an airline takes up to 30 days, depending on the airline’s response time to our registration request. In some cases more time might be needed. At the end of the 30-day period, you will be able to choose to stay with the Business Package or move to the Economy package.
