Barge Digital Transformation Project

NGFDS officially launched the BDT system on November 2, 2020. The platform is currently live for all corn lading as well as soybean ladings dated March 15, 2021 and wheat and DDGS ladings dated April 15, 2021 and later. Remaining commodities will be available on the platform by June 2021.

NGFDS has partnered with essDOCS to implement this project that will digitize barge trading documents, such as bills of lading, so that they may be transmitted electronically - a huge cost savings to the industry.

The industry group directing and funding this project includes representatives from NGFA and the following member companies: ACBL | ADM | Bunge | Cargill | CGB | CHS | Gavilon | Ingram | LDC | Zen-Noh
