House Air Waybill (HAWB)

A House Air Waybill (HAWB) is a document that serves as a receipt for goods to be transported by air. The HAWB is issued by a freight forwarder to a shipper, and it serves as a way for the forwarder to consolidate cargo from multiple shippers for transport.

The HAWB contains information about the shipment, including:

  • the weight and dimensions of the cargo,
  • as well as the names of the consignor and consignee.

It is important to note that a HAWB is not a bill of lading, and it should not be confused with one. A bill of lading is a document that serves as a contract of carriage between the shipper and carrier, while a HAWB is simply a receipt for goods.
