Earlier, the vast majority of bills of lading were in paper form and the lead time for the handover of those copies used to extend up to a week. By transitioning to a digital solution, Federal Bank has reduced the lead time from up to a week to just 3 hours for its clients with complete elimination of reams of paper. This successful pilot transaction underscores Federal Bank’s commitment to providing seamless, eco-friendly, and customer-focused banking services.

The digitalisation also eliminates the risk of forgery, loss, and theft of paper versions and aligns with ESG principles by reducing paper consumption and carbon emissions associated with courier services.

Rathna Mala L V, Senior Vice President and Zonal Head (CIB), Federal Bank commented, “We are extremely delighted to announce that Federal Bank is the first Indian Bank to have completed the pilot digital Export Document collection transaction using WaveBL platform. Digital transactions eliminate manual paperwork and streamline processes, resulting in faster turnaround times and improved operational efficiency. There are substantial savings in time and resources for both the Bank and customers in addition to having a favorable environmental impact.”

“Federal Bank and WaveBL are committed to driving innovation and sustainability in trade finance. This milestone underscores our shared vision of leveraging technology to deliver superior banking solutions that empower businesses to thrive in an increasingly digital world. We’re happy to have Federal Bank on the WaveBL network.” – Ofer Ein Bar, VP Financial Institutions, WaveBL.

Group of Companies said “As the importing partner in this ground-breaking initiative, Giacomini is excited to embrace the WaveBL platform, in partnership with Federal Bank and Kerafibertex International(p) Ltd.
