IATA has launched its e-freight solution for domestic shipments in the US, it is currently operational at 58 US airports.

IATA e-freight, one of the Simplifying the Business projects, improves service and cuts costs by taking the paper out of the air cargo supply chain. Facilitated by IATA, the project is an industry-wide initiative involving customs authorities, carriers, freight forwarders, ground handlers and shippers. IATA e-freight eliminates the need to send paper documents with air cargo shipments, hence streamlining processes, improving speed and reliability.

The IATA e-freight implementation team was led by American Airlines Cargo in close cooperation with DB Schenker Logistics.

International e-freight in the US went live in October 2008 and operates at Chicago, New York JFK and Miami for both imports and exports, and Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles for imports only. There are plans to increase the number of US ports for both export and import over the coming months.
