Do you know that one air waybill (AWB) is meant for one parcel only? Different parcels should have different air waybills with unique tracking numbers. It’s a fact!
One common problem faced by those who have few parcels to send is being able to attach AWB correctly when they’re sending to the same receiver. Every now and again, our courier partners find those parcels brought to their hub that isn’t quite what they expected. It could be an AWB attached on more than one parcel, in which they share the same tracking number that couldn’t be scan into the system.
Hence, you can imagine the tiredness when our courier partners came across the hassle procedure for this, that turns a quick delivery into a slow-motion mode.
What Happens If You Attach Multiple Parcels With The Same AWB
Delays occur when the courier put your parcels on hold in their hub because they may need more time to clarify your case – decide which to return and which continue its journey to your receiver.
Damaged Seller’s Reputation
Something went wrong when the parcel has exceeded your promised delivery duration to the customer. So, you screwed up! When the customer isn’t happy, your reputation can fall low with a bad rating.
Excess Time & Cost To Resend

Other than the previous shipping fee burnt, there is an extra shipping fee incurred on each of the parcels for resend, thus you will no longer able to enjoy a simple yet quick delivery service with EasyParcel.
