Cargill A.T. LLC has completed its first grain export from Ukraine to Italy using essDOCS electronic bill of lading solution.
The cargo consisted of 25,000 MT of Ukrainian maize, transported on the m/v FORTUNE ERA managed by Alkon Holding.
Ukraine now marks another key region where essDOCS’ eB/L solution is used in grain trade, following previous successful eB/L grain shipments from the USA, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Australia and Russia.
The electronic bills of lading were drafted by freight-forwarders Phaeton International in Odessa, Ukraine on behalf of Cargill A.T. LLC. The drafts were then approved by ship managers Alkon Holding and Cargill A.T. LLC. The eB/Ls were then signed and issued by the ship managers on behalf of the master, with the end receiver being Cargill SRL Italy.
