Driving digitalization in shipping

 MSC is an industry leader in eBL adoption, which we believe will play a key role in enabling more efficient, secure and sustainable trade. Since launching our global solution in 2021, we have issued hundreds of thousands of eBLs.

The white paper forms part of our ongoing efforts to promote the eBL and fulfil our commitment to achieve 100% eBL by 2030, a goal that is also shared by the eight other ocean carrier members of the Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA).

“We created this white paper in the quest for industry-wide adoption and the level of interest it has generated is overwhelming. Our intention is for it to be a useful guide for anyone involved in the transition from paper Bill of Lading (BL) to eBL. We are immensely grateful for the incredible response we have received so far."
André Simha, Global Chief Digital and Innovation Officer
