VALETTA, MALTA, 7 June 2012: Electronic Shipping Solutions, the leading provider of electronic shipping documents is pleased to announce that the TT Club, the international transport and logistics industry’s principal insurer, has confirmed that essDOCS CargoDocs™ electronic bills of lading are approved for the purposes of their standard insurance policy
