Proponents Go on the Road to Promote Adoption of E-Air

Momentum seems to be surging for the multilateral e-Air Waybill with the recent endorsement by the Airforwarders Association and the Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America.

"It's big for us in the U.S," said Mike White, assistant director cargo facilitation, security and standards for Cargo Network Services.
