Leading agribusiness and food company, Bunge, has completed the first ever CargoDocs end-to-end electronic agri transaction into China.

The shipment marks the first ever trade where no paper outputs were used for importing agri cargo into China, meaning that electronic Bills of Lading were drafted and transacted 100% electronically via CargoDocs.

Specifically, the agri transaction involved a cargo of Brazilian soybeans transported via bulker from Brazil to China, and is part of a series of ongoing Bunge trades using CargoDocs following the signing of a CargoDocs Global Rollout agreement with essDOCS in Q1 2015.

Most notably, the end-to-end electronic agri trade comes at a time when digitisation uptake continues to ramp up across bulk trades into China – particularly in the agri and metals & minerals sectors – marking a key milestone in further accelerating and automating documentation processes for shipments into China.
