Arch Resources & Javelin Global Commodities go live with Tata Steel Europe on CargoDocs
Arch Resources (formerly ‘Arch Coal’), a US-based supplier of metallurgical coal products for the global steel industry, and Javelin Global Commodities, a UK-based marketing, trading and financing bulk commodity firm, recently went live with CargoDocs – completing their first ever shipment using electronic Bills of Lading (eB/Ls), involving Tata Steel Europe as Importer.
The go-live transaction involved a cargo of coal exported from Baltimore, US to IJmuiden, Netherlands, and was executed as a co-loaded shipment with Arch Resources and Javelin Global Commodities as Shippers, Tata Steel IJmuiden BV as Receiver, and Drafting Agents Host Agency LLC (acting on behalf of Javelin) and Capes Shipping Agencies (acting on behalf of Arch).
Commenting on the recent go-live transaction, Dwaipayan Das, Shipping Operations Manager, Tata Steel Limited, said: “We at Tata are now in the process to accelerate control and visibility of our import documentation as it ensures safe home and safe workplace for all stakeholders involved in the supply chain by minimizing human interaction and interaction with physical paper documents.”
Raph Christofidis, Cargo Manager, Host Agency LLC, added: "We're excited to help our customers as they utilize this new platform. Our team is looking forward to many more successful voyages."
