The TradeLens eBL is a standard, industry-supported, end-to-end digital solution that provides shippers, cargo owners and freight-forwarders a streamlined and secure process for the issue, transfer and surrender of original bills of lading.

Streamline your processes

TradeLens eBL is a carrier-supported digital bill of lading you can receive and transfer with the click of a button, eliminating time-consuming manual handling and the costs of couriering paper documents worldwide.

TradeLens eBL is a secure, digital document that’s immediately available to all parties with blockchain-secured versioning and a clear audit trail, so you can eliminate the risk of lost documents, forgeries, delays and unforeseen charges. 

No more wasteful paper

Traditional, paper bills of lading require printing and couriering that’s wasteful and costly.
TradeLens eBL provides instant, secure digital transfers, so you can reduce or eliminate the effort and cost of printing and couriering paper bills of lading and other shipping documents.

Access a digital ecosystem

Manually handling bills of lading and other documents across various carriers can lead to confusion and errors.

Schedule pickups efficiently

You churn through time trying to coordinate container pickups. There’s lack of clarity and often simply no updates.
TradeLens Core provides data direct from our network of carriers and the ability to set custom notifications when your containers are ready for pickup, so you can optimize your transport scheduling.

Negotiate better rates

Fairly assessing your transport partners is difficult without comparable data to help make cost-saving decisions.
TradeLens Core gives you transport data analytics tools to help you assess partner performance, so you can allocate costs fairly and improve your customer service.

Avoid surprise charges

Destination charges are levied invisibly, and there’s no easy way to know if the fees are fair.
TradeLens Core gives your complete downstream container visibility, including at the destination terminal, so you can forsee any charges under DDP terms using actual container movement data.
