Dubai: Dubai Trade, DP World’s single window platform for cross border trade, has introduced “electronic delivery order”, a tool that will allow supply chain entities to handle their import processes with “just the click of a computer mouse”.

The E-Delivery Order is tailored to support trade, logistics and supply chain players at a time of operational disruptions caused by the pandemic.

The new system enables shipping agents, freight forwarders and “beneficial cargo owners to move beyond over-the-counter operations that require physical visits and upgrade to a digitised process on the Dubai Trade portal.

“Dubai Trade’s E-Delivery Order marks a major step forward in digitising the management of logistics to increase the resilience of the trade and logistics sector, which are classified as essential services by the UAE,” said Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region.

The process is further eased with Dubai Customs accepting digital bills of lading and delivery orders from agents.
