CargoDocs Tank Barge Documents
CargoDocs Tank Barge Docs enables refineries, terminals, shippers and carriers to utilize electronic Barge Receipts (eBRs), plus additional eDocs covering barge load and discharge movements including Quality Certificates, Loading Confirmations, eAD, Inspection Reports, Sailing Advices and Letters of Protest.
The solution also enables users to replace unstructured Barge Nominations with electronic Nominations (eNoms) – including CIF or FOB Counter-party Nominations plus Load & Discharge Nominations.
Our Tank Barge Documents solution is widely used across the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) markets in Northwest Europe, and will soon expand to cover flows in APAC and other regions.
