What is the meaning of HAWB?
HAWB stands for House Air Waybill, which is issued by a freight forwarder to a shipper after the receipt of a shipment. HAWB signifies a confirmation that the forwarder is to deliver the shipper’s goods to an agreed named place.
In generally, the process of shipping goes from the shipper to the forwarder, who then passes the goods to a carrier. On receipt of the goods from the shipper, the forwarder issues the HAWN. On the other end of the process, the carrier issues MAWB – Master Air Waybill when the goods are received from the forwarder.
