@Justin_Burns1  In his presentation @IATA head of e-cargo Guillaume Drucy says end of year eAWB penetration will be from 38-40% – below target of 45%.

@Justin_Burns1 Drucy says in 2016 the eAWB penetration target is 56% – says 70% of world can do eAWB. Target will be achieved by getting 80% of that 70%.

@Justin_Burns1 Gruber says 45 operators are in the certification progress and 97 in discussion over certification.

@Justin_Burns1  Gruber says focus is on certification @ the destination rather than origin as where the problem of pharma goods being damaged usually occurs.
