How to Generate Consolidated e-Way Bills on the e-Way Bill Portal?

Updated on: Dec 2nd, 2022


2 min read

A consolidated e-way bill (EWB-02) is a single document that contains details of all the e-Way Bills (EWBs) related to the consignments. Suppose you are a transporter/ supplier who wants to transport multiple consignments of goods in a single conveyance or vehicle. In that case, you can use the consolidated e-way bill feature available on the e-way bill portal.

Note:  You should be a transporter or have generated the e-way bills at step 1 to use the consolidated EWBs facility.
