Enabling ERP, ETRM, HCA & Energy Post-trade integrations, including: various SAP systems, Implico Open TAS, Quorum Energy Components, Maron OAS + more
By either uploading manually or by pushing via an API
Allowing you to set privacy controls on which docs should not be accessible by counterparties
Upload as PDF and add comments plus signatures & stamps as required, and add to document set
Sign securely with one click and re-authenticate to complete signing. Includes full visibility on docs you are signing and what requires signing by other parties

Easily generate non-negotiable & non-original docs for Customs clearance purposes. Outputs can be provided to Customs as paper or PDFs. essDOCS works with customers to ensure acceptable output prior to shipping into any new country
Features Coming Soon
CargoDocs is currently adopted at refineries, storage terminals and by ship agents drafting documents on behalf of energy shippers across the globe to digitize shipping/trade documents.
Today, 66% of the World Tanker Fleet and 79% of the ARA Tank Barge Fleet are signed up to CargoDocs.
Access our lists of key energy customers, trade finance banks, agents/inspectors and tanker operators.
How long does it take to start trialing or using DTD?
If you start trialing DTD standalone, i.e., without an interface to your ERP / Hydrocarbon Accounting system, we can set a new terminal up and you ready for testing in 5-10 business days (depending on the scope of testing)
How can the workflows and documents managed be customized for different terminals?
Each asset can be setup with its own workflows and document sets, or companies can use DTD to create and maintain global processes, with variations to meet local requirements
How do I integrate my ERP or Hydrocarbon Accounting System?
We provide an Open Rest API which enables you to import data + PDFs to generate transactions and documents (or exporter final docs), and is currently used to integrate with a wide variety of ERP, ETRM and Hydrocarbon Accounting Systems
Can DTD be used to manage both paper and electronic shipping/trading documents?
Yes, the solution enables full or partial digitization, but enables terminals to use a single solution/process even if some shipping documentation will be issued as paper originals
Which parties need to adopt DTD for me to gain the most efficiencies?
DTD has two core elements covering digital ship-shore processes from pre-berthing to during loading checklists and/or digital shipping documents. The first element only requires the master and the inspector. The second also requires the trade chain, meaning that it may not be possible to digitize all document shipping sets from day 1. However, our Customer Success Team will work with you to build out the network of traders, buyers and banks if any of your key counterparties are not currently using CargoDocs
Do I need to adopt the end-to-end flow, or can I only adopt parts such as ship-shore digitization or shipping/trading docs digitization?
A terminal can choose to digitize the entire ship-shore process and/or post-loading shipping documents. Workflows and documents managed will be configured to your specific requirements as part of the setup
What time savings have customers experienced using DTD?
We are currently rolling out DTD, but our existing Terminal Solution which only digitizes the shipping documentation process can save 0.5-6 hours per movement, depending on your current paper-based process. We anticipate that DTD will save an additional 1-3 hours per movement, if a terminal adopts the full ship-shore module as well
Who pays for DTD?
The solution is charged to either the terminal or lifter. Other parties such as ship agents, inspectors, tanker/barge operators use the solution free-of-charge
