An eAWB is an electronic version of the traditional Air Waybill (AWB), which is a legal contract between the shipper and the carrier that defines the terms and conditions of air transportation. The eAWB contains the same information as the traditional paper AWB, such as the consignor's and consignee's details, the nature of the cargo, and the terms of the contract, but it is created, transmitted, and stored electronically.
