Evergreen offers paperless BoLs

[ March 1, 2018   //   ]

Evergreen Line is now offering paperless bill of lading and dispatch documentation through its ShipmentLink digital portal, saying it is the first container carrier to integrate with banking system Bolero’s electronic bill of lading solution.

Evergreen says that rapid issuance and transmission of the electronic BoL is particularly useful for short-sea shipments when a paper document can sometimes arrive later than the vessel, making it difficult for importers to pick up cargo on time.

The paperless environment allows reviews and alterations to be made online and speeds up cash flow as carriers can release goods and banks can release payment to shippers far more quickly.
