Freight moving from paper to the electronic world

The air freight industry is gradually moving towards paperless freight transport, and the electronic air waybill will replace the paper one in the future. In Finnish export freight, the electronic air waybill (eAWB) was taken into use in August. Benefits achieved with digitization improve the efficiency and quality of international freight transport.

At the same time, we started using the direct message exchange of Finnish Customs’ ELEX export system. Thanks to this, export declaration message exchange and the export freight process are substantially faster and more secure than before.

Posti’s SmartShip freight service makes it possible for our customers to manage the entire supply chain effectively from one location. The easy and fast service is available for our customers around the clock and every day of the week. The service includes transport orders, documents and schedules, item tracking, waybills, a price calculator, supplementary services and a reporting tool.
