Ocean Network Express issues its first digital bill of lading


JAPANESE owned but Singapore-based Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that it recently handled its first ever electronic, negotiable bill of lading (eB/L) via essDOCS' paperless document solution, CargoDocs.

ONE, the world's sixth largest container line by TEU capacity, has also selected essDOCS to power its upcoming bill of lading digitisation initiative, commencing work which will use the capabilities of CargoDocs to share, review and approve draft bills of lading and sea waybills (whether paper or electronic) online for all ONE customers globally.

In the next phase of the project, ONE will allow customers to use electronic bills of lading on a regional and subsequently global basis commencing in Q2 2020, as part of ONE eCommerce initiatives.
