AWB(Air Way Bill)
Due to the change of regulation (submission of Air Manifest by origin country freight forwarder), the needs from the freight forwarder had decreased.
Cross-border trade data and document exchange are highly correlated with regulatory requirements.
In Korea, a freight forwarder of destination country had to report Air Manifest prior to arrival of airplane. Considering that most flight from South Asian economies are departing around midnight, the collection of AWB and capturing data for Air Manifest submission was a hard work for a freight forwarder. PAA had introduced a PAA AWB service collecting AWB data from the origin country freight forwarder and sending the data to a freight forwarder in importing country. Value added service was also provided to a freight forwarder in importing country which was to convert the AWB data into Air Manifest and automatically submitted it to Customs simplifying a manual submission work process of a freight forwarder.
