An electronic bill of lading, considered the holy grail of the maritime industry

Subscribe to our blog

For the better part of 30 years the maritime industry has striven for a broadly adopted electronic bill of lading that benefits all parties in international trade. For those involved in the creation, transfer and surrender of bills of lading, the reduction of costs and inefficiencies associated with the manual movement of paper documents is a goal yet to be fully realized.

This is a repost of a webinar that discussed how importers and exporters can now use a single platform to digitize and streamline their electronic bill of lading processes.

Topics covered:

• Overview of key trends and historical challenges of the bill of lading
• Ideas and thoughts for overcoming these industry challenges through digitization
• Discussion on how TradeLens, and platforms like it, can create immediate value
