Export Air Freight

The ForwardOffice Export Air freight software module offers everything the air freight agent needs, whether you’re working with direct shipments, back-to-backs, co-loads or full consols. It helps you rate and cut Airway bills (master and house level), and since it has CASS accreditation, can be used with automatically-assigned MAWB numbers and neutral Airway bills.

Options include Export Customs NES and CSP-Connect interfaces to help you get through customs as easily as possible, and extra modules from ForwardOffice are easy to integrate for extra features. It’s a complete solution to improve the efficiency and productivity of your export airfreight shipment processing.
