DELTA Cargo has launched self-service iPad kiosks in Atlan- ta and Boston, and is currently testing in other hubs, requiring electronic air waybills (e-AWB) as standard operating procedure (SOP). The new implementation supports Delta Cargo and the International Air Transport Asso- ciation (IATA) efforts to transition from paper air waybills to e-AWB and provides customers with a streamlined digital experience when booking domestic product shipments. Kiosks were first tested in At- lanta at all shipment acceptance counters, including DASH offices. Since the start of the trial, the carrier has recorded a 94 per cent increase from paper to e-AWB bookings for US domestic ship- ments in Atlanta. Following pos- itive customer feedback, these kiosks have now been rolled out in Boston, and will shortly be availa- ble at New York - JFK and Seattle cargo acceptance counters. Delta’s current eAWB penetra- tion rate is 81.3 per cent year-to- date, which is above IATA’s global goal of 68 per cent eAWB for 2018. “The introduction of Delta Cargo’s self-service experience contributes to a more environ- mentally friendly and simple booking process, while also providing expedited service to customers,” said Lindsey Jalil, managing director - Commercial, Delta Cargo. “With initiatives such as this we are working towards our goal of achieving 100 per cent e-AWB penetration in the United States by the end of the year and internationally in 2019.” Delta in self-serve iPad kiosk trial to make e-AWB its SOP Dubai government in move to split up Inchcape Shipping THE INVESTMENT Corporation of Dubai, the principal investment arm of the government of Dubai, has launched ISS Global Forwarding, a wholly-owned subsidiary focused on supply chain logistics.

ISS Global will initially be present in 18 countries across the Middle East, Africa, Europe, India and Turkey.
