electronic bill of lading




We’re pleased to announce that Control Union is now live with CargoDocs, having issued its first set of CargoDocs electronic Bills of Lading on behalf of essDOCS Agri customer Cargill. The successful shipment, involving a cargo of crude high oleic sunflower oil transported from France to Belgium, marks the first use of CargoDocs electronic documents by the major global independent inspector/certifier. eDocs were drafted by the documentation team at Control Union Inspections France and approved bycharterers Cargill France, Cargill Netherlands and the vessel owners. The electronic bills of lading were then signed and issued by the master, with the end receiver being Cargill Netherlands. In addition, the successful trade was executed using our CargoDocs Collaborative Drafting tool, substantially improving visibility and enabling speedy approval of documents throughout the process.
