Airway Bill Document

legal translation services airway bill translation

An Air waybill (AWB) is a legal carriage document given by a transporter that offers details about the goods being transported. It provides detailed info on the contents of the shipment, the terms and conditions, the names of the sender and recipient, and other information.


The Air waybill is non-negotiable and acts as proof of the contract of carriage from airport to airport. The AWB involves three parties—the sender, the recipient, and the airline. The AWB is issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).


Before shipping the goods, and AWB must be filled out. Once it has been signed by the shipper and the carrier, it becomes an enforceable contract. As it is a legally binding document between the parties, the details must be clearly and accurately filled.


Being a legally binding document means that you can land in trouble if you overlook the details in an AWB. Luckily, by hiring a legal air waybill translation service you can avoid any such occurrences.


Where can an Air Waybill (AWB) Be Used?

  • As proof of a transport contract made between the shipper and the carrier.
  • As an insurance certificate.
  • As a confirmation of taking over of goods by the carrier.
  • To document evidence of the conclusion of the contract of transportation.
  • Serves as an invoice or freight bill.

Sample Air Waybill

An AWB can be drafted by the expediter, the recipient, or the carrier. If it is a single unit shipment, the airline agent will be the one to write the AWB. In case of grouped shipment, the consolidator writes a House Air Waybill, which is signed by the air company before loading the goods, then hand them over to the shipper. This shipper is responsible for ensuring the exactness of the data and declaration relative to the goods mentioned on the Airwaybill. Usually, the air waybill is produced in three copies: one copy for the transporter, signed by the shipper; a copy for the recipient, signed by the shipper and the transporter; and a copy for the expediter, signed by the transporter.
