What is an air waybill?

This is a set of documents for the transportation of material values by air, which consists of three original copies and nine copies (if it is a typical air waybill) or three original copies and from 6 to 11 copies (if it is a master air waybill).

Airway bill contains all the data necessary for each of the participants in the transportation of cargo by air. For example, it specifies the name of the sender and recipient of the goods, the carrier, their addresses, the tariff for the delivery of goods. It also provides checkboxes for the final recipient to mark the accuracy of the execution of the instructions indicated in the document, fields for entering information on the acceptance of the goods for shipment.

The air waybill records the characteristics of the goods – its weight, dimensions, marking, quantity, description, instructions on the method of loading and unloading, the declared value of the shipment, information on the payment of fees and the payer.
