flydubai Cargo goes paperless

Published on : Friday, November 1, 2013

flydubai CargoDubai-based flydubai’s Cargo division has begun implementing electronic airway bills (e-AWB) throughout its operations. The new initiative aims to reduce the amount of paperwork needed for cargo deliveries, while streamlining the process between different entities.

Commenting on the new agreement, flydubai’s Vice President – Cargo, Mohamed Hassan, explained, “Switching to electronic airway bills is an important milestone in the history of flydubai’s Cargo operations. With cargo deliveries often requiring 20 or more paper documents each, the new initiative keeps our costs at a minimum, allowing us to be more productive, more reliable and deliver orders with greater accuracy.”

flydubai Cargo, which began operations in 2012, transports a range of goods including perishable items, textiles, electronics, courier items, pharmaceuticals and general cargo. The Cargo Division has been successful in its first year of operations with an average of 3,200 tonnes of cargo transported each month, a considerable increase on predicted figures. flydubai’s services have also provided a much needed Cargo option for underserved markets. flydubai Cargo services operate to more than 68 stations across its network, while offering more than 150 stations through its interline agreements with other airlines.

“flydubai’s implementation of electronic airway bills is another example of our commitment to provide an innovative and reliable service for our freight forwarders who have signed a multilateral agreement with IATA.

90% of all airway bills issued by flydubai are electronic significantly higher than the current industry average of 29.5% emphasising flydubai’s support of this IATA’s initiative. We look forward to continuing to provide a simpler, accessible and efficient operation for our customers in previously underserved markets,” Hassan added.
