e-freight

What is e-freight?

Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics is working to fully impliment e-freight, an IATA global project involving end-to-end stakeholders of the supply chain. e-freight aims to reduce, if not eliminate, paper documentation and replace it with the exchange of electronic data and messages. To start the e-freight process, a customer should be already practicing e-AWB and the origin station should be e-freight feasible.
