Barge Digital Transformation (BDT) Solution exceeds 100 eBoL transactions per day
US Agri Houses using the CargoDocs-powered Barge Digital Transformation (BDT) Solution reached 100+ average eBoL transactions per day over the last week. The key milestone was achieved while the BDT rollout is still only in its initial stages.
The BDT solution is currently used by 31 Agri companies and 12 Barge lines for corn flows in the Mississippi waterways.
With an additional functional release this week and an extension to the current Open API in the coming weeks, BDT rollout will extend to bean flows in early March before moving to other products in early April.
We look forward to further significant growth of the solution’s use during 2021 and to supporting BDT users in digitally transforming US Agri Barge trade.
The BDT Solution originates from an initiative led by the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA), which selected essDOCS to develop, deliver and manage a solution digitizing the approximately 70,000-100,000 negotiable Barge Bills of Lading that NGFA members process annually. BDT was developed in close collaboration with the NGFA-led digital trade body, National Grain and Feed Digital Solutions (NGFDS).
