Cargill executes first Container Shipment using CargoDocs
We’re delighted to announce that Cargill has successfully completed its first containerized cargo shipment using CargoDocs.
The successful trade involved a CargoDocs electronic Bill of Lading issued by NYK Line for 9 containers of grain cargo, carried on the vessel APL Barcelona from Los Angeles to Taiwan.
The move towards container shipments is part of a strategic Cargill initiative to widen the scope of its transition towards paperless trade (eDocs), aimed at expanding eDoc use to cover additional shipping modes, a wider range of commodity types and new trade routes.
Aside from being Cargill’s first use of CargoDocs in the liner/container shipping segment, the transaction also marks the first ever use of CargoDocs in a containerized grain shipment, in addition to being the first ever US to Taiwan shipment executed using CargoDocs.
