Hapag-Lloyd, one of the world’s largest liner shipping companies, has expanded its blockchain-based electronic Bills of Lading (eBLs) service, WaveBL, to 30 new regions worldwide. The expansion aligns with Hapag-Lloyd’s goal of promoting sustainable standards throughout the entire supply chain by paving the way for paperless and streamlined processes that provide an excellent customer experience and builds trust between trade partners.
By implementing WaveBL, Hapag-Lloyd is moving one step closer to going completely paperless with its customers. This is an important step towards making shipping more sustainable, as the use of traditional paper BLs comes with lengthy processes and expensive delivery costs.
“A digitised bill of lading allows us to offer our customers a more simplified, streamlined and seamless experience,” shared Henrik Schilling, Senior Director Global Commercial Development at Hapag-Lloyd.
“Hapag Lloyd’s adoption of the WaveBL marked a significant step towards creating a sustainable and environmental supply chain added Noam Rosenfeld, CEO of WaveBL. “Together, we’re proud to stride side by side towards the digital revolution whilst simultaneously supporting sustainability along the industry’s supply chain.”
By going paperless, Hapag-Lloyd enables its customers to reduce their carbon footprint further. This trend has been increasingly adopted by businesses in recent years, and it is an essential factor in today’s ecologically-conscious society.
