FWB (Freight Waybill) is an electronic copy of the Master Air Waybill (MAWB) which is being transmitted from agent to carrier. The most common format used to transport this information is EDI.
Details of FWB and other EDI communications are defined by IATA and published in the IATA Cargo IMP Manual. This is available on www.iataonline.com
CargoIMP (Cargo Interchange Message Procedures) support all processes in freight handling. For example: Transfer of air waybill (Master AWB) data, flight manifest, shipment status, discrepancies, embargos, customs, CASS billing and settlement system, and dangerous goods information.
