Why It’s Important

Cross-border containerised supply chains are some of the largest and most complex business ecosystems in the world today. 30 independent parties, 100 people, and up to 200 exchanges of information to be connected to a single shipment. With this increased complexity, it’s important to have a solution that can help maintain the efficiency of supply chain operations.

Reduce friction and costs with an industry supported digital bill of lading – TradeLens eBL

The TradeLens eBL is a paperless instrument, issued by carriers, that is transferable, entitles the holder to the goods in shipment, and is surrendered to carriers for cargo release.

Exchanging the TradeLens eBL is a standardized process for all TradeLens participants and adheres to legal and regulatory frameworks.

Using TradeLens, carriers issue an eBL for a shipper as a structured document. The issuance is recorded, and a hash of the document is saved to the TradeLens Blockchain.

Now, the shipper can view the issued eBL in the TradeLens platform, and when ready, instantly and securely transfer it to a consignee with the click of a button. When the container shipment is ready to be received, the consignee can simply click “surrender” and the eBL returns to the carrier for cargo release.
