House airway bill (HAWB)

A house airway bill (HAWB) is a document used in the international transportation of goods. It is issued by a freight forwarder and serves as a receipt for the shipment of goods. The HAWB is used in conjunction with the master airway bill (MAWB), which is issued by the airline and provides a record of all shipments being carried on a particular flight. The HAWB contains information about the shipment, such as the origin, destination, and type of goods being transported, as well as details about the consignor and consignee.
