darshak: AWB as outlined above is correct. However, AWB is not negotiable document unless IT IS 'TO ORDER' Basis. However, AWB does not many times contain Actual Freight paid/payable,but it shows 'AS ARRANGED.' fORWARDER AWB should also show ACTUAL NAME OF AIRLINE, to enable consignee to arrange for speedy clearance.
