  • Get future proofed to move from documents to data - start exchanging House BL information in a standardised way
  • Bring trust and security - Give the possibility to your stakeholders to verify at any time: the validity of the eFBL, your identity as well as the document content integrity.
  • Achieve your sustainability goals - Embrace a green solution, help saving paper and unnecessary courier services.
  • Flexibility of format - Decide in which format you want to share your FBL with your stakeholders: in a digital format (PDF) or you can always print it if needed. 

Where can I issue secured digital FIATA BLs? 

Currently the below TMSs, eBL providers and other platforms have signed the agreement to implement the digital FBL. If your TMS/software is not listed, please contact FIATA and we will see if we can work with your platform provider to implement the service. If you have developed your own in-house solution, you can implement the solution directly on your system, please refer to the section "FIATA digital BL for software providers" to find out more.

If your company does not use any TMS yet, check out the list of providers who offer free/cost effectives tools to issue digital FBLs.

Towards interoperability

In 2022, FIATA, along with the DCSA, ICC, BIMCO and SWIFT, created the Future International Trade (FIT) Alliance and signed a Memorandum of Understanding to standardise the digitalisation of international trade. The industry associations collaborate on the development and adoption of relevant standards to facilitate the use of electronic bills of lading.

A key focus of the collaboration is to facilitate interoperability between all actors of the supply chain, allowing them to exchange data seamlessly, using the platform of their choice, through the use of standards.

Secured digital FIATA BLs for software providers 

The eFBL data standard and the dedicated API to connect to FIATA to generate secured digital FIATA BLs are available for free to all software providers interested to implement this new service. 

The eFBL data standard is aligned with the UN/CEFACT MMT Reference Data Model to facilitate interoperability with existing standards and the different actors of the supply chain. 

The eFBL data standard and the API technical specifications are available on our GitHub repository
