What is MAWB?
Air Waybill (AWB) is an air consignment note issued by an international courier company, as an evidence of the contract of carriage.
In air freight, the exporter (the consignor) often engages a freight forwarder or consolidator to handle the forwarding of goods. The consignor authorizes the forwarding agent to sign certain documents (e.g. the AWB) on behalf of the consignor.
International AWBs that contain consolidated cargo are called master air waybills (MAWB). MAWBs have additional papers called house air waybills (HAWB). Each HAWB contains information of each individual shipment (consignee, contents, etc.) within the consolidation.
A house air waybill can also be created by a freight forwarder. When the shipment is booked, the airline issues a MAWB to the forwarder, who in turn issues their own house air waybill to the customer.
International AWBs that are not consolidated (only one shipment in one bill) are called simple AWBs.
The AWB has a tracking number consists of 11 digits and 3 parts.
