  • DCSA Publishes Standards for the Bill of Lading – Dec 8, 2020 – DCSA released the first set of standards for our eDocumentation initiative. Read the press release here. The DCSA Standard for the Bill of Lading can be freely downloaded from the DCSA web site and comprises data and process standards for the submission of shipping instructions and issuance of the bill of lading (B/L). The standards can be implemented immediately to streamline and align paper-based B/L data and processes. To facilitate implementation and compliance, the DCSA Interface Standard for the Bill of Lading along with associated API definitions and a reference implementation will be published in January 2021.
