HMM, Korea’s largest and the world’s eighth-largest container carrier, has announced a strategic partnership with CargoX, a leading provider of electronic trade document solutions. This collaboration introduces electronic bill of lading (eBL) features on the HMM digital service platform that aims to modernize and streamline eBL workflows, enhancing the efficiency and security of global trade documentation. The eBL document lifecycle includes features such as transfer, surrender, and document acceptance, ensuring comprehensive support for all equivalent paper-based functions. Each eBL is recorded on the public ledger, guaranteeing secure and immutable documentation, with audit logs accessible at all times. Initially, the service supports electronic bills of lading in PDF format, with structured data eBLs based on the forthcoming DCSA eBL standard to be available soon. The HMM digital services platform and CargoX Platform integration will be available to all HMM customers globally starting on 8 July 2024.
