Streamlining international trade by digitalising end-to-end documentation

Antiquated, paper-based processes are still a daily reality in international shipping. In 2020, DCSA estimated that 16 million original bills of lading were issued by ocean carriers, yet less than 0.3% were electronic. Paper B/Ls cost the industry about US$11 billion per year.

Paper-based documents are not only expensive, they are inefficient and vulnerable to fraud and human error. As a consequence, they slow down trade and hamper growth and innovation, increasing prices and exacerbating supply chain bottlenecks.

Benefits of digitalising documentation

  • Eliminate tons of paper from the environment
  • Eliminate manual B/L processing
  • Increase efficiency and visibility

The need for digital documentation is now widely accepted among industry stakeholders. So:

  • Why are billions still being wasted on paper?
  • How can digital documentation benefit your organisation?
  • How can you help DCSA make paperless international trade a reality?
