WaveBL Cooperation Boosts Digital Trade Finance Workflows

Surecomp announced on January 26, 2023, that it will collaborate with WaveBL, a blockchain-based digital platform, to improve digital trade finance workflows.

This will be accomplished by enabling access to electronic bills of lading via Surecomp's fintech hub, RIVOTM. Nevertheless, WaveBL's features will be available on Surecomp's collaborative trade finance platform.

In fact, the bill of lading is still presented on paper under a letter of credit. Therefore, it is necessary for corporations to physically acquire the bills of lading from the shipping companies and then deliver these documents to their banks. It is a time-consuming and expensive process that can take a few weeks. WaveBL has already established connections with some of the biggest container shipping companies in the world, such as MSC, Hapag-Lloyd, ZIM, and ONE. Transparency, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness will be improved by connecting to bill-of-lading providers like WaveBL and exchanging the data with their banks on their trade finance management platform.

The buyer, seller, issuing bank, and advising bank can now digitally sign and exchange unique, original papers to avoid courier expenses, fraud risk, and dock penalty penalties, thereby, improving customer experience, environmental sustainability, and company resilience.

Enno-Burghard Weitzel, Surecomp's SVP of Strategy, Digitization and Business Development, stated, "By removing barriers and facilitating collaboration to drive a more streamlined, sustainable global trade finance process, RIVO allows any exporter to now access, manage and transfer ownership of its bills of lading electronically."

He further added, "Our digital fintech hub RIVO is designed to bring together best of breed solutions to help customers streamline their trade finance management and workflow. Our partnership with WaveBL will afford our customers greater transparency, data accuracy and a much smoother document checking process, expediting a previously very tedious and time-consuming workflow."

WaveBL's VP of Business Development, Ofer Ein Bar, expressed, "This partnership is a win-win alliance that will radically drive forward the transformation of trade whilst rapidly increasing trade efficiency. It marks a key milestone in our mission to truly transform trade; including the streamlining of crucial trade finance flows."
