The future is electronic B/L

Cost savings

The adoption of eBLs leads to substantial cost savings by reducing the need for paper, printing, courier services, and paper archive management. Additionally, it minimizes the risk of document loss or damage, which can incur further costs and delays, thereby streamlining financial management.

Enhanced security and tracking

Each eBL issued by HMM is recorded on the public ledger when transferred to the CargoX Platform. This ensures the immutability of the original eBL to maintain document integrity and security. The public ledger is tamper-proof, and it guarantees that all transactions are secure and transparent.

Environmental

We believe in the power of collaboration, transparency, and joint care for the world. We believe trees are to be nurtured and loved -, and documents need to be created and transferred electronically, drastically reducing their carbon footprint.

Global accessibility

EBLs can be accessed and managed from anywhere in the world, providing greater flexibility and convenience for all parties involved in the maritime cargo industry. This global accessibility ensures that stakeholders can collaborate more effectively, regardless of their geographical location, thus enhancing international trade.

Social

We bet that electronic solutions, implemented wherever possible to replace the old ways of transferring information on paper, can improve the world, empower communities, and provide productivity and working environment enhancements.

Governance

We know that standards and interoperability are the only ways to move forward, to ensure a multithreaded global trade based on streamlined workflows, clear communication and efficient processes.

User-friendly

The CargoX platform offers a streamlined experience for managing eBLs, accessible from any device for convenience and availability 24/7. It simplifies the issuance, transfer, and management of eBLs, enabling stakeholders to navigate digital workflows effortlessly. Users can conveniently attach additional trade documentation in a digital format, eliminating the need for printing.

Improved efficiency

The digital workflow significantly reduces the time and effort required to process and transfer BLs. By eliminating the need for physical document handling, the eBL system minimizes delays and accelerates the overall shipping process, enhancing operational efficiency.

Risk mitigation and dispute resolution

The adoption of eBLs mitigates risks associated with traditional paper-based systems, such as fraud, loss, and disputes over document authenticity. With blockchain technology ensuring secure and transparent transactions, stakeholders can resolve disputes more swiftly and effectively, minimizing disruptions to supply chains and improving overall business continuity.

It is legal to use it everywhere

In accordance with the parties' freedom of contract, all parties to a freight transaction may agree to accept the electronic bill of lading as a valid document, with all the practical benefits and legal consequences that this entails. Even if the laws in the countries do not yet specifically establish electronic B/L as a document. 

Until countries enact laws regulating electronic trade documents, the parties to the contract of carriage may determine the use and validity of digital bills of lading through sets of rules or general terms and conditions within the framework of freedom of contract.

On the other hand, if the governing law of the bill of lading is that of a country that has enacted legislation based on the MLETR (e.g., Singapore, the UK, or France), the validity of the bill of lading is additionally subject to mandatory national regulations.

We are delighted to announce the launch of our electronic bill of lading service in partnership with CargoX, a leading provider of electronic document solutions. This new eBL capability will enable us to deliver an enhanced service to our customers and spearhead the digitalisation of the shipping industry.

Kurt (Wonjun) Jang
SVP of HMM Container Operation Office

In our opinion blockchain is best used where trustworthy data and document processing is needed, and where transactions of ownership take place. For us the CargoX Smart BL is easy to use and even easier to implement, and the cost and time savings are just incredible. We are already looking forward to new products from CargoX - in our opinion the best in this field.
