To comply with US Customs and Border Protection ACE and ACAS reporting requirements for all cargo originating from international locations and transported to the US, effective 12th June 2019 Hawaiian Airlines will only accept House Air Waybill Numbers with a maximum of 12 Alphanumeric characters. All House AWBs numbers in excess of 12 Alphanumeric characters will be rejected.
 
The following key data elements on each HAWB must be met:
 
1. HAWB number with a maximum of 12 Alphanumeric characters.
2. Shipper Name and Address - individual name or name of business and a valid
street address with city/province country and postal code.

And of course if you´re shipping dangerous goods you have to include the respective details in the  Air Waybill,too.
Are you shipping lithium cells or batteries?
For each national and international transport as per ICAO TI resp. IATA DGR in air transport, IMDG Code in sea transport and ADR in road transport it´s the shippers duty to only ship lithium cells and lithium batteries that were manufactured according to the quality management program described in the transport regulations.
What this quality management program looks like you can find out here:
https://www.lithium-batterie-service.de/…/quality-managemen…
UN Test Series 38.3
But this requirement is also layed out in the 49 CFR for transports within the USA: Each lithium cell and each lithium battery (with the exception of pre-production prototypes and small series up to 100 pieces) must have successfully passed the UN Test Series 38.3.
What the UN Test Series 38.3 includes, you can find here:
https://www.lithium-batterie-service.de/…/un-38.3-test-seri…
From 01. January 2020 onwards each manufacturer and subsequent distributor needs to provide a UN 38.3 Test Summary. We adjusted our Supplier Inquiry Form to that effect. And we provide the document to you free of charge:

You may add your company logo to it before sending it to the manufacturer of your lithium cells and lithium batteries or your supplier as long as you keep our copyright details in the footer.
Should you have any questions regarding the shipping preparation and transport of lithium cells and lithium batteries, please don´t hesitate to contact us:
