Digital Trade Documents
no code-low code

London – 19 December 2022: essDOCS, a part of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), today announced the launch of ICE Digital Trade Documents (DTD) for Energy Terminals & Refineries, a first-of-its kind, highly configurable solution digitizing post-trade and shipping processes for the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. The news follows a series of successful DTD trials for refined product shipments intra-Asia Pacific.

“For our terminal and refinery customers, every minute in the pre and post-loading process is valuable. ICE DTD is a game-changing solution which digitizes complex, fragmented, paper-based processes, with the potential to save hours per shipment,” said Alexander Goulandris, Co-Head, essDOCS. “DTD’s no code-low code approach also means the solution can be easily configured and adopted, providing quick time to value.”

Empowering Digital Terminal and Refinery Operations

ICE DTD offers Energy Terminal and Refinery Operators a significant digital advancement, allowing them to digitize the full scope of communication and documentation transmitted between stakeholders at the point of delivery. The comprehensive solution enables operators to manage and visualize all ship-shore communication, loading and discharge instructions, and the generation and management of cargo and export documentation. Transparency and collaboration across all participants in the ecosystem helps shippers and operators avoid costly errors and delays, achieve substantial time-savings per shipment, and maximize throughput at the terminal.

Accelerating Digital Transformation

As a native no code-low code solution, ICE DTD provides unprecedented configurability, allowing terminals to quickly automate workflows tailored to their specific requirements. Self-administration and configuration, combined with open APIs, enable operators to define, implement, and adjust their workflows without the reliance on software developers or third-party implementation specialists. Operators are therefore able to significantly reduce their total cost of ownership and accelerate their ROI by quickly realizing tangible benefits from the solution.
