Your needs

Customising document exchange channels is burdensome

Pressure is mounting to digitalise trade documentation, especially since 9 of the 10 largest container carriers started the movement in 2019 to standardisation and digitalisation and some of your bank’s biggest customers are underway with their own digital initiatives. While it ultimately has benefits – fewer errors, more streamlined straight through processes, lower fraud risk, increased sustainability – creating bespoke channels for exchanging digital documentation with every stakeholder is prohibitively expensive. And then getting thousands of customers on board with making the switch may seem an impossible project. On surface, a real business case for transformation from paper - B/L to eBL is not that obvious,  yet, industry momentum is pushing you in that direction. 

Standards that allow end-to-end documentation exchange

永利皇宫app下载注册 collaborates with its members (nine of the top 10 container carriers), government bodies, cargo owners and other relevant supply chain stakeholders to develop standards that allow the seamless end-to-end exchange of digital trade documentation. Using interoperable data models and APIs, 永利皇宫app下载注册 standards enable straight-through digital processing of all container trade-related documentation, increasing accuracy and security while reducing costs. 永利皇宫app下载注册 works closely with eBL solution providers on platform interoperability to ensure seamless eBL transfer across platforms. Interoperability will stimulate and facilitate large-scale adoption of eBL. Standardised digitalisation of trade documentation will enhance the sustainability of international trade by reducing waste related to printing, handling, storage and transportation of paper documents.

Key benefits

Our standards will provide several key benefits for your bank’s trade finance operations.

  1. Increased efficiency and accuracy
    Reduction of delays and errors associated with manual data entry and processing, illegible handwriting and lost documents. Digital files enable simultaneous sharing with required operational and risk support functions.
  2. Fraud reduction
    Enhance the security of electronic documents with digital signatures, encryption technologies and authentication mechanisms to ensure the information is tamper-proof, which can reduce the risk of double financing. The eBL becomes the single source of truth thanks to control tracking.
  3. Increased business flexibility
    The licence with your current solution provider(s) is sufficient. Interoperable data exchange interfaces enable you to work cost-effectively and contribute to scaling adoption, without the need for onboarding additional solution providers.
  4. Reduce risk
    Reduce dependency on physical documents that may be susceptible to loss, damage or fraud during transit.
  5. Increased sustainability
    Help the industry go paperless with 100% adoption of fully digital documentation. Reduce expenses related to printing, handling, storage and transportation of physical documents.
