Interesting article about electronic airwaybills (e-awb) and electronic documentation. Could this really help? Are the problems with lost airway bills or the lack of declarations?

Lithium batteries remain a concern for airlines. These incidents are avoidable. In almost every case the lithium ion batteries were improperly packaged. Please make sure to always have your lithium ion battery shipments packed with a dg specialist.
