Electronic Bill of Lading with WAVE BL

Handling physical paper leads to processes that are cumbersome, outdated, time-consuming, and error-prone. And that’s exactly why Hapag-Lloyd would like to invite you to take advantage of a service that allows you to shift to digitally exchanging a key trade document without using any paper: the electronic bill of lading (eBL).

This service is provided via WAVE, a digital courier platform and secured communication protocol that facilitates and streamlines the exchange of original documentation between business partners and platforms along the supply chain.

We invite you to join the new era of paperless eBLs – and welcome you to WAVE.
