Echoes 1975-2015, 1999 CNS Rising

Echoes 1975-2015   The year 2015 marks our 40th year in the world of air cargo news reporting—first as Air Cargo News and now as FlyingTypers.
   The stewardship of Air Cargo News FlyingTypers hasn't changed since 1975, and while that is an impressive feat, what is even more remarkable is that in 2015 we have been fortunate to present the writings of the nearly 102-year-old Richard Malkin, who remains the first air cargo reporter in history (circa 1942) and now serves as FlyingTypers' Senior Editor.
Here Richard continues a remembrance of events in an exclusive year-long series, "Echoes 1975-2015."

1999 CNS Rising
1999 CNS Rising
  Cargo Network Services’ computerized AWB number distribution service was upped to 38 with the joining of two U.S. and two foreign-flag air carriers: Trans World Airlines, United Airlines, TACA, and New Zealand Airways. It was noted that air freight forwarder and IATA cargo agent users have expanded to slightly under 1,800.
  Under the CNS-developed system, airlines provide blocks of serial numbers as well as a list of forwarders and agents authorized to receive their numbers for computerized AWBs.   Requests are made to CNS via fax to supply a pre-authorized group of numbers. Daily and monthly recaps of transactions performed. The service is without charge to forwarders and agents.
