Shell and ONE collaborate in Singaporean e-BDN trial
Container shipping company Ocean Network Express (ONE) concluded a successful trial with Shell, with support from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), to use an electronic Bunker Delivery Note (e-BDN) in September 2023.
The e-BDN trial was conducted on 9 September 2023 at the Port of Singapore. As part of the trial, the cargo officer, chief engineer, and bunker surveyor completed the electronic bunkering documentations for pre-delivery and post-delivery. Upon completion, the bunkering documents were transmitted to all parties before the vessels departed.
The digital bunkering solution used was developed by Angsana Technology, and used a unique link and one-time password for the cargo officer, chief engineer, and bunker surveyor to ensure security.
