Jeddah-based independent forwarder Express Forwarding Services (EFS), a member of the WCA Family and longtime user of the WIN IT connectivity platform, has made the first ever e-AWB shipments on Air France KLM Cargo out of Saudi Arabia. The Air France KLM Cargo shipment flew in April from King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA) to Piarco International Airport (POS), Trinidad & Tobago.
“We have increased our e-AWB usage in the Middle East, focusing on the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia by 22 per cent in four months,” said Sophie Duret, project manager Middle East, Gulf & Indian Subcontinent, Air France KLM Cargo.
“We have assigned a dedicated ‘e-freight’ expert for the Middle East market as part of our new vision to improve our customer performance. EFS has brought us a step closer to paper-free e-freight, which will be a huge improvement for the airfreight industry.”
